Fresh off the back of his 23rd and record-breaking European goal for Tottenham, we've dedicated a quiz to Jermain Defoe – there is no greater honour in sport.

Martin Chivers half-time words of support evidently worked as Defoe smashed his penalty in to the roof of the net.

Defoe’s never been shy of scoring a goal or two and his Tottenham career is nearing the 100-goal mark. On top of that he’s made 54 appearances for England, scoring 19 goals.

As a proven goalscorer in the Premier League it’s easy to see why he’s been in-demand by clubs; not many players can be sold by a club one year only to be bought back a year later at over double the price.

Having spent over eight years at Tottenham in two separate stints, the only other clubs on his CV of note are his first, West Ham, for whom he played 105 games in total for - and Portsmouth, for whom he notched up 36 appearances. He also had a loan spell at Bournemouth at the beginning of his career.

In his youth he played for the Sunday league team Senrab, well known in London for producing players such as Lee Bowyer, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Ledley King.
