Can you name every England player to wear No.9 at a major tournament since 1990?


Jermain Defoe marked his return to the England number nine shirt with a goal on Sunday as the Three Lions beat Lithuania 2-0 at Wembley.

Defoe’s challenge is to now keep hold of the shirt – and Gareth Southgate has refused to rule out the Sunderland striker making the squad for the 2018 World Cup.
