Defoe gets Becks backing
By Neil Vaughan for THEspursweb.com

DAVID BECKHAM believes that Jermain Defoe has what it takes to make it at international level.

The England Under-21 international striker is eager to make the leap to senior international football but faces competition from the likes of Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Alan Smith and Emile Heskey.

"There are lots of young players coming through," said Beckham. "Jermain Defoe is doing very well at Tottenham and has been scoring a lot of goals.

"He has got a lot of talent and is capable of playing at the highest level and there are other players who can play there as well so we will have to wait and see."
