Arsenal great Ian Wright says that Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane is a born goalscorer.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane in The Sun.

Kane has been in sensational form so far this season and is in the England squad for games against Lithuania and Italy.

The 21-year-old came on as a substitute against Lithuania in the Euro 2016 Group E qualifier at London’s Wembley Stadium on Friday.

It was the Tottenham youngster's first game for the Three Lions, and he marked it in style, scoring just 79 seconds after his introduction to help Roy Hodgson’s side to a comprehensive 4-0 win.

Former Arsenal and England international striker Wright was impressed with what he saw of Kane in his debut game for England and has lavished him with praise.

“I know the game was already won, and I know it was only Lithuania,” the 51-year-old wrote in The Sun. “But this guy was born to score goals and if his debut is anything to go by, we could be witnessing the start of one of the great England striking careers.”

Kane may be 21 years of age and has been around for a while, but this is his breakthrough season and he simply cannot stop scoring.

The youngster has scored 19 goals and created 20 chances in 26 Premier League appearances for Spurs so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 61%.

True, it was only Lithuania against whom Kane made his debut, but the confidence he showed as soon as he came on and the way he took his goal underlined his quality.

It would be wise not to get carried away with Kane just yet, but he certainly deserves all the praises he is getting at the moment.
