Tottenham striker Harry Kane has stated to The Daily Mail that he is motivated to start scoring goals for his club as it will help him book a place on the plane to represent England at Euro 2016 next summer.
The Spurs homegrown hero had a remarkable first season in the White Hart Lane first team, scoring 31 goals in his breakthrough campaign in 2014-15.
However, the lethal centre forward has struggled to replicate this clinical form in front of goal this term and is yet to hit the back of the net for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in the current campaign.
Kane did get his third international goal for England recently in the 2-0 victory over Switzerland at Wembley, coming off the bench to make an immediate impact for Roy Hodgson’s men.
However, the young forward has stated that he is motivated to have a strong season for Spurs as that will play a part in him getting a potential starting berth for his country next summer.
“I’ve said before that if I go there I want to go to Euro 2016 and start,” The Daily Mail quote Kane as saying.
“I don’t want to go there and just be a squad player. I want to do well this season for club and country and take that form into the Euros.”
Kane will have an excellent opportunity to open his account for the season this afternoon, as Spurs travel to take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
