Richard Keys reacts to Harry Kane’s heroics for Tottenham Hotspur

Sports presenter Richard Keys suggests that Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane should play for the England national team.

Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys appears to be in favour of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in getting a call-up to the England national team.

The youngster is currently part of the England Under-21 side, but calls for him to be given a chance for the senior team have grown over the past few months.

Kane started the season behind Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor in the Spurs pecking order, but he is now one of the first names on the scoresheet.

The 21-year-old has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Tottenham so far this season, including 10 in the Premier League.

Two of those goals came in the 3-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Saturday, which led to former Sky Sports presenter Keys taking to social networking site Twitter to back him for an England call-up.

Kane is one of the best young players in the Premier League and arguably the best young English striker on current form.

England are in action in late March when they take on Lithuania and Italy in the space of five days. The first game is a Euro 2016 Group E fixture at London’s Wembley Stadium, and the second is a friendly.

Given the form Kane is in at the moment and the progress he has shown over the past few months, it will be hard for England coach Roy Hodgson to ignore him.
