Harry Kane has the potential to be an England star

Published Add your comment

Harry Kane has elevated himself to being seen as one of England's brightest prospects. His undisputed form this season has in no doubt put him in the forefront of Roy Hodgson's next England squad.

What  does Harry Kane possess from other great hopes who have come to the front line for England following a dazzling club spell? We have seen players such as Fraizer Campbell and Jay Bothroyd receive international recognition to no avail in years gone by.


What we see in Harry Kane however, is a player who provides attributes which aid the team from many different perspectives. A forward who is able to cover 13km in matches; stretching and splitting defences. He is clearly a player with extremely useful attributes.

In the modern day of tactical warfare in which the emergence of pressing and defending from the front has become almost essential due to the influence of European giants such as Barcelona . Kane is the perfect player to do this. His performance at Swansea FC in which he covered a staggering 13.1 km was a prime example.


Kane proved once again to be key in the Spurs victory. His probing runs and willingness to move defenders would have been without doubt one of the reasons the tired Swansea defence lost concentration to allow Christian Eriksen to score the winning goal.

Kane has proven to be a dream for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. In his quest to replicate that infamous pressing game he mastered at Southampton. Pochettino has found it difficult to get his front men to close down defenders in possession, so in Kane he may have found a player to build in and around. Bringing back the aggrrsive style of play we have not seen by Tottenham since the days of Harry Redknapp.


So what prospects are their for Harry Kane in an England shirt? Many is the answer. If he is able to replicate the same level of work ethic and desire he is currently showing. He will provide a great option for Hodgson. Kane is a player who fits into the mould of what it seems the England national team are following. Youth, aggression and pace.

If England are to follow this quota, Kane would no doubt be another promising piece in the jigsaw puzzle.
