Spurs star out of Brazil friendly

Spurs striker Jermain Defoe will miss England's friendly against Brazil on Wednesday due to the ankle injury he sustained at West Brom.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed in his post-match press conference that Defoe would be withdrawn from Roy Hodgson's squad ahead of the Wembley clash.

Defoe suffered the injury in the first half at The Hawthorns, when he landed awkwardly on his left ankle after avoiding a challenge from Shane Long and was substituted.

Villas-Boas said Defoe would be sent for a scan to determine the extent of the damage.
