Tom Carroll congratulates Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Harry Kane on Twitter after England call-up

Tom Carroll low quality

The England Under-21 star, currently on loan at Swansea City, was pleased for his mate.

Harry Kane received a well-deserved first call-up to the senior England national team earlier this week, as Roy Hodgson named his squad for upcoming fixtures with Lithuania and Italy. He joins fellow Tottenham team-mates Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker in the squad, although their respective inclusions were less appreciated by fans.

The striker has been prolific this season, scoring 26 goals across all competitions and his call-up to the senior squad was widely expected by the majority of those involved with the game.

Of course he received plenty of congratulations after news broke of his call-up.

Former players, current players and pundits all let him know of their feelings – as did a few current players.

One such man was Tom Carroll.

The midfielder is currently enjoying a terrific loan spell away from Tottenham at Swansea City. He was on Twitter today celebrating his own call-up to the England under-21 set-up when he sent this message to his Spurs team-mate:

Both lads came through the Spurs youth system together so Carroll will have seen Kane develop over the years into the top talent that he is now.

One day he will hope to play in the Tottenham and England first-team with him, but for now the creative midfielder must continue his good form with Swansea.
