2015/16: Harry Kane has been in fantastic form for both club and country over this past season. At the beginning of the campaign he was being questioned by pundits and fans alike, and many predicted he would struggle and fall victim to second season syndrome. The 22-year-old failed to find the back of the net in his first eight appearances for Spurs, but in what was a remarkable turnaround he managed to win the Golden Boot, scoring 25 Premier League goals.

He was the main reason that Tottenham remained in the title race for so long, but unfortunately his team lost their way in the final few games and eventually finished third. He will be playing Champions League football next season, however, for the first time in his career, and it will be fascinating to see how his game develops against some of the best players in the world.

There has been consistent chatter about a move away from White Hart Lane, with Manchester United reportedly interested in the young marksman, but Kane seems to envelop everything that the modern footballer does not. He is down to earth, loyal, and gives 100 per cent every game. Tottenham will surely have to match his ambition next season, however, and bring in some stellar additions to supplement his talent.

What can we expect?

Roy Hodgson will face a huge dilemma come June 11th when England are set to face Russia in the opening game of Group B. For the first time in many years, England have a wealth of attacking talent at the managers disposal, but Kane stands head and shoulders above the rest. What he lacks in experience he makes up for in attitude and raw talent. He is the closest thing to Alan Shearer the England national team has seen since, well, Alan Shearer.

Kane is just as comfortable with his back to goal as he is playing off the shoulder of the last defender, and that is what makes him so dangerous and hard to defend against. This summer's Championship may be the time when he announces himself on the world stage, and if he is at his best, he could lead England to their first major tournament success since 1966.
