England manager Roy Hodgson has recently revealed Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who recently made his first and second cap for the national team, wants to play for the U21s in this summer’s European Championship, reports
The 21-year-old is eligible to play for Gareth Southgate’s side at the end of the season, but has just broken in the senior squad as a result of his fantastic form in the Premier League with Spurs. The U21 boss has previously stated his desire to have the strongest possible side to take for the tournament to keep him and the nation the best chance of winning. He feels the U21s have a bad reputation, and that it shouldn’t be seen as a demotion to play for them after having represented the senior team.
Harry Kane has played for the U21s previously, and made an impression during his time with the Three Lions. England senior manager Roy Hodgson believes the Tottenham man is more than happy to return with the youngster this summer to help them win the competition, as he believes the striker to have some unfinished business.
