England training the highest standard I’ve experienced, says Harry Kane

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The Tottenham forward is also focusing on making Euro 2016 but knows he faces stiff competition for a place.

Speaking to BT Sport’s Fletch and Sav, broadcast from 10am on Saturday September 5th, Harry Kane has revealed what he thought in his first England training.

The forward enjoyed his breakout campaign last year as he finished as the second highest scorer in the Premier League.

Those performances earned him his first call up to the senior England squad, with him scoring his first senior goal with his first touch as a result, and now he has revealed what he was thinking in his first ever training session with Roy Hodgson’s squad.

“You go out to train for the first time and you realise you’re in amongst it, in the top crop of the whole nation,” he told Fletch and Sav.

“You’re playing with some world-class players. I embraced it well and trained hard because I wanted to play, I didn’t want to go there and be on the bench. The training was a very high standard, probably the highest I’ve been involved with.”

Focus on Euro 2016 but tough competition

With Euro 2016 on the horizon, Kane is naturally targeting another fine season in the Premier League to ensure he will be travelling to France with the senior team.

He will face stiff competition for what is likely to be four forward places though, with the likes Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck, and even Theo Walcott all looking to make the squad and fill the striker positions.

And Kane is more than aware of that competition, saying it is all about doing well for Tottenham and taking that form into the national side.

"The aim is to try and get into the squad for the 2016 Euros," he added.

“There’s going to be competition from a lot of top strikers. It’s about fighting for a place with them; doing as well as you can for your club and taking that into the national side.”
