Pochettino comments on Harry Kane's England call-up hopes after 'fantastic' QPR display

Mauricio Pochettino said Harry Kane's performance against QPR was 'fantastic'.

Tottenham Hotspur made it two Premier League wins in a row today with a 2-1 victory of Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

Spurs had gone five games without a win in all competitions before Wednesday's 3-2 win, and they followed that up with another three points this afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino's men were the better side throughout, but once again they had star striker Harry Kane to call upon in front of goal.

Kane got the ball rolling with a header from Andros Townsend's free kick, beating goalkeeper Robert Green to the ball before adding a second after half time, rounding Green and tapping into the empty net from Ryan Mason's pass.

Kane, 21, now has 26 goals this season after his brace against QPR, and naturally the discussion has again turned to whether he should be in the England squad.

England face Lithuania and Italy later this month, and many expect Kane to be given a call-up - especially after manager Roy Hodgson was seen in the crowd at Loftus Road today.

After the game, manager Pochettino was asked about Kane's international prospects, with the Argentine labeling him as 'fantastic' against QPR - but isn't sure whether Hodgson will hand him his first England cap just yet, with his press conference quotes reported by London 24.

"It was a fantastic performance, he scored two goals," Pochettino said. "He is young, can improve more and now it is Roy’s decision. I don’t know if (he deserves a call-up). Roy needs to decide whether this it time to pick him or not," he added.

Danny Ings and Saido Berahino are likely to be his main competition for a call-up, but it's hard to ignore that record of 26 goals this season, giving Kane a great chance of breaking into the England side this month.
