Sheringham feels that Harry Kane will be England's main man
Kane was sensational for Spurs over this past season, scoring 25 Premier League goals and helping his side to a third place finish in the league, and as England manager Roy Hodgson faces a conundrum over who he should start in attack at the Euros, Sheringham compared the Tottenham marksman to Leicester City star Jamie Vardy:

“Kane has more to his game than Vardy. If you assess everything that Kane and Vardy can both do – they can both run the channels, they can both score from long distance, and they both get goals with their right foot. However, Kane is better on his left foot, Kane is better in the air, and Kane is better at receiving the ball. Vardy’s pace is probably exceptional and that makes him different, but Kane has something more to his game and at international level you need that."
Sheringham's words will be music to Kane's ears. To receive such a glowing reference from one of Tottenham and England's all-time great strikers will surely be a fantastic confidence boost for the Spurs striker as he heads to France for the Euros.

Sheringham, who scored 125 goals in 277 appearances for Spurs, went on to tell the Daily Mirror how he believes Kane has the potential be the top goalscorer at the Euros:
“Can Kane challenge for the Golden Boot at Euro 2016? Yeah, of course he can. If he hits a run of form like he did in the league then absolutely. If he scores a couple of goals in the group stage and England get a nice draw in the Round of 16 then he’ll be bang in the mix."
Kane is currently on duty with the England squad as they continue to prepare for their opening group game against Russia on June 11th.
