Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is in the England squad.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has reacted with delight to his first ever England senior call-up.

The prolific forward has enjoyed a magnificent breakthrough season at Spurs, establishing himself as the club's first choice striker, and now he gets the opportunity to do the same for his country.

He thanked supporters and teammates for their best wishes via Twitter, on a momentous day for his career.

England face Lithuania in a Euro 2016 qualifier next week, and then Italy in a friendly match days later.

Kane's inclusion meant there was no place for QPR forward Charlie Austin, but he faces competition up front from a fit again Daniel Sturridge and Arsenal rival Danny Welbeck, who has five goals in four qualifiers so far to his name.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Joe Hart (Manchester City)

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur)

Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Everton), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Fabian Delph (Aston Villa), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Milner (Manchester City), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur), Theo Walcott (Arsenal)

Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)
