Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is hoping his current form will lead to the England call up he has dreamed about since he started playing football as a boy, Sky
The 21-year-old is enjoying his break through season to huge success having bagged 16 goals in all competitions in the first half of the campaign.
Having played only a handful of games the academy graduate is now showing his true skill that has lead to England boss Roy Hodgson describing him as someone who has “come on leaps and bounds” – with his eye now firmly on the Spurs striker.
With the next international fixtures still two months away Kane admits he needs to continue to perform well and score if he is to stand a chance of the dream call up everyone is currently touting him for.
He said: “It’s something I’ve dreamt about since I was a kid but there’s still two months until the next England squad is announced.
“There’s a lot of football to be played from now until then so I know I’ve got to keep my form up if I want to have a chance at that.
“I’ve got to keep scoring goals because the boss has said he’ll pick players on form and who’s doing well.
“To have the England senior manager talking to you in that light and saying things like that about you is something that can only help me.
“Hopefully I can continue what I’ve been doing and get a call up. I know if I’m playing well and if I’m have a shout but I know I’ve got to continue playing well to have any chance because the England senior squad is the top of the top and what every English footballer dreams of.”
From his 16 games in the league Kane has bagged himself seven goals – although it took until early November for him to finally be given a Premier League start.
That means his league goals have come in just 10 games to make his rich vein of form all the more impressive.
