Team Eng-er-land striker Jermain Defoe says the squad's visit to a Royal Marines boot camp could help the players cope with the emotion of penalty shootouts. He guffed that having his team-mates watching him complete the "sheep dip" was a "pressure moment".
"It's the sort of pressure when you're in a penalty shootout and the lads are waiting for you to step up. Going forward it helps you, brings you closer together. You know you've got your team-mates who will help you."
WTF? How is getting dunked anywhere near the same situation of a tense and nerve-racking penalty shoot out at a major football final? I just don't understand nor do I see any reasoning from him either.
