Harry Kane reflects on England's stunning turnaround in friendly win over Germany

The Tottenham striker kicked the comeback into life by scoring England's first.

Harry Kane has reflected upon a special night that saw England come from 2-0 down to claim a stunning 3-2 win against world champions Germany, the London Evening Standard reports.

The 22-year-old scored Roy Hodgson's side's first goal on the hour-mark to give them a lifeline, and it appeared to inspire his teammates as Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy bagged the equaliser before Kane's Tottenham colleague Eric Dier secured a late winner in Berlin.

And Kane has been full of praise for the team's fighting spirit which led to them turning the game on its head.

"To be 2-0 down, which probably wasn't deserved as we were playing well, and then turn it around and win 3-2 was special," he told the London Evening Standard.

"I thought the team were excellent tonight and we fully deserved the win and that can give us great confidence going forward.

"Goals change games and my goal came at the right time and really gave us a boost for the final 20 minutes or so. It was important but the lads never gave in."

The performance was certainly the perfect way for Kane to stake his claim to be Hodgson's number one choice for the upcoming European Championships. With the likes of Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck all established at international level, the Spurs man needs to prove that he can take his form from White Hart Lane and repeat it for the Three Lions. 

And there are arguably few better ways of showing that he is capable of doing just that than getting the better of one of the strongest defences in world football.

While it was a friendly, if he can follow that goal by maintaining his form for Mauricio Pochettino's side, then Hodgson will find it nearly impossible to justify picking anyone else up front.
