Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been finally given his long awaited call-up for the England national team ahead of two internationals to come against Lithuania and Italy, reports BBC Sport.
Kane, 21, has been in fine form for the Londoners this season, scoring 26 goals in 42 games in all competitions. His form in front of goal forced manager Roy Hodgson to select him for their two games to come at the end of the month. The England boss hinted that he would included him in his next squad as a result of his form, and he will now be given a chance to prove his worth for the Three Lions.
Tottenham are fighting for a top-four finish this season largely down to the England hopeful’s goals throughout the campaign. He’s netted big goals in big games, and has shown he can shoulder the responsibility. Kane was previously playing down talk of England duty, but he been too impressive for Spurs to be left out in the team, and could well become a mainstay if he can take his opportunities when presented to them.
