Tottenham striker Harry Kane revealed he wants to become a long-serving England international, and is desperate to earn his first cap for the national team later this month, after manager Roy Hodgson gave the 21-year-old his first call-up, reports Sky Sports.
Hodgson had little choice but to give Kane his first call-up to the England squad, with the young striker having impressed for Spurs this season. He took his chance when afforded game time by manager Mauricio Pochettino this season, and is the third highest goalscorer in the Premier League for his troubles too.
“There are a lot of great players (in the England team) but I will try and get in and do as well as I can. If I manage to get a cap then it will be a very proud day and one I won’t forget. Hopefully it is the first of many,” said Kane
Harry Kane has 26 goals in all competitions for the Londoners, and has been impressive keeping Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado out of the side as a result of his incredible form. The England hopeful has scored big goals in important games, and looks to have the all-round qualities in attack that Hodgson is a big fan of.
The England manager gave tribute to Kane, and believes he has all the attributes he’s looking for, while hinting that it’s what sets him apart from the likes of Danny Ings (Burnley), Saido Berahino (West Brom) and Charlie Austin (Queens Park Rangers).
