TORONTO - Don't rule out Toronto FC's Jermain Defoe for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

In an interview with England's Football Association on Thursday, England manager Roy Hodgson addressed the striker's MLS move, saying that although Defoe no longer is playing in a top European league, he's far from finished.

"He will be playing but he will be playing in a league a long way from the top league over here, but that won't change anything as far as I am concerned," Hodgson told the FA's official website.
