Defoe to miss Euro 2012 qualifiers

Defoe will play through the pain however as Spurs look to overcome Swiss side Young Boys tonight in the Champions League 3rd qualifying round.

Redknapp said: “It might only be half a game he can last now, but it’s getting less each time – the pain’s getting worse.

“He wants to play and train all the time but he’s got to have it done now. He can’t go on like that.”
