Heskey defends lack of goals

England striker Emile Heskey says that there is far more to his game than goals, having found the net a mere seven times in 58 appearances for his country.

The 32-year-old Aston Villa frontman is a key member of Fabio Capello's squad for the World Cup finals in South Africa and Heskey is confident that he has much to offer to the cause.

He told reporters:"As a striker you're judged on goalscoring. I know people will look at that.

"But I'd like to think I bring a lot more to the game than just that, even though I know people will look at that and I have to take it.

"I do take as much pleasure in assists, even if I am self-critical. I like to be part of a winning team and that is what my job is about.

"I do sometimes think 'I could've done better and got a goal myself', but I guess that's part and parcel of the game."
