Tottenham forward Harry Kane recently made his debut for the England senior team and marked it with a goal. He has been regarded as the next big thing to lead the England line-up.
However,Kane took the strange decision of joining up with the England under 21 team even after making his senior debut. Apart from potentially causing a burnout in the summer,Kane is also risky his place in the senior team. It could be taken up by strikers like Berahino and Charlie Austin, who have had excellent campaigns themselves. Kane was close in the running for the PFA player of the year award after having scored 30 goals in all competitions.
Kane’s goal tally is mightily impressive considering that he had not been a first-team regular at Tottenham until midway through the first half of the campaign. England under 21 manager Gareth Southgate says that he has seen a lot of promise from the young Tottenham forward, who he expects to thrive at the European under 21 Championships. One of the primary reasons forKane to join up with the U21 team is to complete the job that started with his goals. England are taking a very promising team to take part in the U21 championships.
“I think he’s got a really strong mentality. He’s very focused in his practise, he’s very focused in his belief in himself.Probably at start of this campaign we were starting Saido (Berahino) and Harry was very much of the belief: ‘Why not me?’He scored a hat-trick against San Marino and then we were dipping him in and out, but every time he’s played he’s had a huge contribution.This season he’s flown with us and with his club. He’s the pin-up boy and it’s a wonderful story and we hope this is the next part of it,” said Southgate.
