I won't give up on England, and Alli, Kane critics need to wise up - Defoe

Martin Ainstein's train pulls up at World Cup host city Rostov-on-Don, home of the historic Museum of Railways.

LONDON -- Jermain Defoe is not about to abandon hope. The last player to send England to the knockout stages at the World Cup still believes he can do it again in Russia, despite "a stop-start, frustrating season" at Bournemouth.

"I got a letter. All the players that are in contention get a letter to tell you the schedule for the summer," Defoe told ESPN FC. "I don't feel like I have anything to prove. I'm quite relaxed about it to be honest. The manager knows what I'm about and, if I'm called on,...

Southampton overcome Bournemouth -- and nerves -- for vital win

SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Mark Hughes, as he is not shy of saying, has never been relegated. He may have to wear at least some of Stoke's potential demotion, having been in charge there until January, but his next three games are about ensuring he doesn't have two in the same season on his record and conscience.

At full-time, after his Southampton side had repelled attack after Bournemouth attack to close out a 2-1 win, Hughes looked like he didn't know what to do with himself. He turned around and...

Pogba, Man United respond to Mourinho criticism with win

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Three points on Manchester United's 2-0 win vs. Bournemouth in the Premier League:

1. Pogba impresses as United get confidence boost

If a challenge had been laid down to Paul Pogba, the midfielder's 40-yard run and slide-rule pass that allowed Romelu Lukaku to seal this 2-0 win at Bournemouth on Wednesday might just have answered it to Jose Mourinho's satisfaction.

While other expensive stars took a rest, Pogba was put through almost 80 minutes of what was ultimately a routine...


England debut for Lewis Cook wins grandfather £17,000 after bet

Lewis Cook made his family proud on Tuesday by making his appearance for England's senior team. He made his grandfather a lot richer, too.

The Bournemouth midfielder made his senior international debut in England's 1-1 draw against Italy, netting Trevor Burlingham £17,000 after he placed a £500 bet in 2014 on his grandson winning a senior Three Lions cap before turning 26.

At the time of the bet, Cook was struggling to break into the first team at Leeds United, even though he had represented...

Harry Kane injury scare mars Tottenham's win at Bournemouth

Tottenham's Son Heung-min discusses how his team responded following a 'sleepy start' and shares his conversation with Harry Kane.

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Three points from Tottenham's 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.

1. Tottenham bounce back after Champions League agony

Harry Kane limped off with a suspected ankle injury as Tottenham banished the pain of this week's Champions League elimination with a 4-1 win at dogged Bournemouth.

Kane was replaced midway through the first half with Spurs trailing 1-0 to Junior Stanislas' goal but in his absence, Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and Serge Aurier stepped up with the goals...
