World-class Manchester United star promises to offer advice and support Spurs youngster

Three Lions close

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney has been impressed with Tottenham Hotspur prospect Harry Kane.

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has promised to support Harry Kane, should the Tottenham Hotspur man need advice while with the England side.

Kane was called up to the Three Lions squad for the first time by Roy Hodgson for their upcoming games against Lithuania and Italy, and Rooney has pledged his support to the 21-year-old.

Although Rooney says that the Spurs forward has not needed any help so far, the England captain has revealed he will always be on hand should Kane need someone to talk to. 

Kane has managed to cope with every challenge thrown at him during his breakthrough season and it is unlikely that he will need too much guidance, given his exemplary attitude.

It is still encouraging that Rooney is happy to offer his support, though, and proves that he is taking his role as captain very seriously.

Rooney and Kane could well form a devastating strike partnership for the Three Lions in the years to come, and the relationship between the two off the pitch appears to have got off to a good start.

Kane will now be hoping to show that he can make the step-up to international level, with England boss Hodgson hinting that the youngster would make his debut during one of the nation's next two games
