England 4-0 Bulgaria: Hattrick for Defoe as England cruise to victory

Jermain Defoe
“A great start, a quiet first half and then a dominant end to the game, as England opened their qualification campaign with a much-needed high-scoring win. Fabio Capello chose to play Wayne Rooney with a partner, Jermain Defoe, rather than in the lone striker role he occupied in the recent friendly against Hungary. Theo Walcott and James Milner were the choices in wide positions, whilst the rest of the team was as anticipated.” (Zonal Marking)

Defoe hat-trick sinks Bulgaria
“Jermain Defoe gave the surgeon’s knife a swerve and instead carved up Bulgaria with his first England hat-trick to bring a smile back to Fabio Capello’s face. Defoe put off a groin operation that threatened to rule him out of England’s opening Euro 2012 opener and gained perfect reward in a deserved win that eased some of the pressure that has been building around Capello.” (ESPN)
