England beat Australia 2-1 in a friendly at the Stadium of Light, with teen debutant Marcus Rashford scoring a brilliant goal in the second minute with only his fourth touch of the game.

With 15 Premier League goals for struggling Sunderland this season, Jermain Defoe is making a late surge for England's Euro 2016 squad.
Danny Welbeck’s long-term injury has created an opportunity for someone to force his way into England’s plans, and Roy Hodgson may decide the 33 year-old’s predatory instincts in front of goal are worth considering as an alternative.
Hodgson postponed Thursday’s squad announcement until Monday because he wants to watch a few players closely over the weekend, as he works out how best to plug the gap left by Welbeck’s absence.
If England’s squad were to be picked on form alone, Defoe would warrant inclusion whether or not Welbeck was fit. The Sunderland striker has scored more often than Theo Walcott, Daniel Sturridge and Wayne Rooney in 2016.
The stats from Oulala also show that Defoe also offers a better conversion rate and shot accuracy than all three England forwards, even though he takes a greater number of shots at goal.
