Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce says Roy Hodgson should consider including Jermain Defoe in his England squad for Euro 2016. Air Max 97 Homme . Defoes 15th Premier League goal of the season helped defeat Chelsea 3-2 on Saturday and victory over Everton - live on Sky Sports on Wednesday night - would secure the Black Cats top-flight status.The former West Ham and Tottenham striker has proved instrumental in guiding Sunderland towards safety and, with Danny Welbecks place on the plane to France now in doubt, Allardyce believes 33-year-old Defoe deserves to be considered by Hodgson. Allardyce believes Defoe deserves another chance at international level I just think that, if Roy needed anybody to go along with the experience Jermain has when he needs a goal - maybe not from the start sometimes - Jermain would be your man if he felt he needed it, because he has proven that this year, said the Sunderland boss.Hes had a big run of games that he has not had for a few years and he has been a consistent performer at the highest level again and scored 18 goals in all competitions. That leaves him around the third or the fourth highest scorer in the Premier League in all competitions this year, which is pretty miraculous in a team thats been sat in the bottom three or four all season.Defoe has won 55 caps for England to date, scoring 19 goals. His last cap came as a substitute in the 2-0 friendly home defeat by Chile at Wembley in November 2013. Sam Allardyce looks ahead to Wednesdays match against Everton Allardyce added: For the first time for a few years, hes consistently played week in and week out for us at Sunderland and delivered, and delivered in a position that people questioned that he could deliver in, which is as a central striker on his own. Defoe has been in fine goalscoring form in recent weeks Hes done all that in whats been a struggle for us for most of the year, so its a great credit to him and his professionalism and dedication, and his ability in front of goal.We couldnt have asked for the ball to drop any better than it did for that third goal [against Chelsea] to Jermain. Hed be the one on the pitch we would have all wanted it to drop to, and he didnt disappoint us.

It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Nike Vapormax Homme Blanche . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands.http://www.vapormaxnikepascher.fr/nike-air-max-2017-homme.html . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. MINNEAPOLIS -- Like the afternoon light on a short December day in Minnesota, the Vikings have been fading fast.For all the fight theyve displayed over the last two months in trying to overcome their offenses injury-influenced limitations, the harsh reality is that the 5-0 start has given way to a 6-6 mark. Victory in the rest of their games is likely the only route to the playoffs, and even in that scenario theyd probably need some help from other teams.Well have to win out, linebacker Anthony Barr said after the Vikings fell 17-15 to league-leading Dallas on Thursday night. I was hoping to get this win today and go on a run, but hopefully it starts next week.The Vikings visit Jacksonville on Dec. 11 before hosting Indianapolis, traveling to Green Bay and wrapping up against Chicago. Finishing on a four-game winning streak, as they did in 2012 to make the playoffs after falling to 6-6, wouldnt be a stunner even with the depleted offensive line and nonfactor running attack. Their 4-6 record in the NFC wont help their tiebreaker cause in the wild-card race, though, and theyd need to finish one game ahead of division-leading Detroit (7-4) to defend their NFC North title.Games among fellow conference competitors down the stretch will help guarantee some of the losses theyd need, but the crowd of teams in the mix is much bigger than the ones that are out of it.Now we go win four in a row. Thats our only chance essentially, linebacker Chad Greenway said. Thats our mentality. Weve done it before.Theres a chance that star running back Adrian Peterson will return during the final stretch from the right knee he hurt in the second game of the season. Perhaps tackles T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles, repeatedly overmatched by recent opponents with the Vikings up to their seventh starting combinationn, will settle in and help keep quarterback Sam Bradford from feeling too much pressure. Air Max 2018 Homme Noir. Maybe the defense can repeat the stellar performance it produced against the Cowboys and their potent offense.The first priority, though, is to get coach Mike Zimmer back after emergency surgery Wednesday night to repair a detached retina in his right eye. That kept him from joining the team against the Cowboys while special teams coordinator Mike Priefer took over the main mans responsibilities .Vikings players were given off until practice Tuesday morning, with no availability with anyone in the organization scheduled until then. Team spokesman Bob Hagan had no update on the condition of the coach, who was scheduled for a doctor visit Friday.He eats, sleeps, drinks football. This is a guy who really wanted to be here tonight for us, cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said. For him not to be here, we know it probably kind of hurt him a little bit. At the same time, hes got to take care of his health and be ready to roll when he can go.Zimmers defense did him proud against Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott and the rest of the Cowboys. Minnesota held them to season lows and well under their game averages in first downs, points and yards. Two big whiffs, letting Prescott scramble for 15 yards on third-and-14 and allowing Bryant to get loose in the secondary later on the possession, led to the first touchdown for Dallas. The Cowboys had only one other drive that went longer than 33 yards, and that time Everson Griffen forced a fumble.Weve got to find a way to win these, Griffen said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
