Smith compared the Tottenham Hotspur man to other leading candidates for an international place.
Smith ran the rule over the Tottenham striker in the Daily Telegraph, with the ex-Gunner giving Kane an 8/10 for 'general play,' 7/10 for aerial ability, 7/10 for speed and 9/10 for finishing.
In the end, Smith concluded: 'If he carries on like this, he must be given a chance. Still has a lot of learning to do but looks like he could make the step up.'
The former Arsenal striker then rated Kane's England chances as 8/10. For context, he also rated Saido Berahino's England chances the same, with Charlie Austin, Danny Ings and Andy Carroll all receiving lower ratings.

As Opta stats show, Smith may just be right in suggesting Kane could improve in the air, while the Spurs forward's ratio of shots on target does suggest the 21-year-old possesses a clinical finish.
The most important statistic of all, however, is that Kane is Tottenham's top scorer so far this season by a distance. His England place, really, seems a shoo-in, although perhaps the biggest question surrounding Kane's future is whether he should stick to the Under-21s for now - especially during the European Championships this summer.
