Defoe confident ahead of Belarus encounter
Defoe came on as a substitute during last weekends 5-1 win over Kazakhstan to score his sixth international goal for England.
The Pompey striker told a news conference, 'The lads are confident. You can imagine after the Croatian game last month that everyone was buzzing. We want to keep it going and got another result at the weekend.
'We will be watching the videos on Belarus, so everyone in their minds will know exactly what they are good at and what they are not good at.
'No game at this level is easy. On Saturday we had to be patient - and once the first goal had gone in, we went on from there.
'We won't under-estimate them, but if we work hard and pass the ball like we can do we should get the three points.'
The match kicks-off at 19.30 on Wednesday, with the game being shown live on Setanta Sports.
Let's hope Crouchy and Defoe can sneak a few more goals.
