The Tottenham Hotspur star has not been able to replicate his club form so far at Euro 2016.

Former England defender Jamie Carragher has told Sky Sports that Harry Kane has not been his usual self at Euro 2016 and has suggested that he expects Roy Hodgson to drop the Tottenham Hotspur striker.

For the second group game in a row, Kane looked isolated and somewhat out of place in the Three Lions attack against Wales on Thursday afternoon.

The 22-year-old did not threaten to trouble Wayne Hennessey's goal and was unable to reproduce the scintillating link-up play with his Spurs teammate Dele Alli.

After former striker Tony Cascarino suggested before the Wales clash that Kane's lacklustre performance against Russia meant he had just 60 minutes to save his starting spot, the star was hauled off even earlier, being replaced at half-time in a double change.

That double substitution saw strikers Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge enter the fray, and both left their mark on the match as Vardy turned home an equaliser before Sturridge struck in injury time with the game's decisive blow.

Carragher believes that has left England with a big decision to make over Kane's position, and the ex-Liverpool man suggested that Vardy and Sturridge will likely be given a starting opportunity in the final group match against Slovakia on Monday.

The defender-turned-pundit told Sky Sports: "They have big decision with Kane. They might leave Kane out and go with Sturridge and Vardy, with Sturridge wide right and [Adam] Lallana on the left. I think that's the way they may go.

"I'm a massive Kane fan but he hasn't been his normal self at the tournament."

Kane has certainly been disappointing, although whether that is down to a lower standard of performance from himself or a lack of quality service is debatable.

However, with Vardy and Sturridge both making a big impact and with England surely now highly unlikely to fail to get out of the group, Hodgson may see the Slovakia match as his only chance to experiment with his line-up.
