Harry Kane is certainly a prospect for the future but when you consider the fine form the Tottenham striker is in, it will be impossible for Roy Hodgson to exclude him from the next England squad.
Kane - who came through the Spurs youth academy - has 20 goals in all competitions this season, a tally which no other player in the Premier League can match.
He scored an impressive brace last weekend against West Bromwich Albion and he is oozing confidence.
Tottenham fans love the 21-year-old and Mauricio Pochettino has also showed faith in the youngster by rewarding his efforts with a bumper five-and-a-half-year contract - much to the delight of the Spurs star.
However, there seems to be a strange vibe around Kane, almost as if the nation are unsure whether to take him seriously or not. His goalscoring record clearly speaks for itself but is he ready for the next step up to international level?

Kane has smart movement and always wants the ball, his hunger is great to see and bodes well for his progression.
His finishing is also remarkable. Kane remains calm in front of goal and can either slot it into a corner or slam it into the back of the net - very much like Alan Shearer used to do.
Kane could be perfect for England
Over recent years, England have struggled to find an out-and-out goalscorer to lead the line but in Kane they might have exactly what they need.
Daniel Sturridge had cemented himself into England’s starting line-up with his clinical finishing last season during Liverpool’s title campaign. However, through numerous injuries, Sturridge has missed a lot of games which could put his place in jeopardy.
Kane has progressed through the England youth system but is yet to make an appearance for the first team. However, it only seems a matter of time.
England’s next European Championship qualifiers are at the end of March. Kane could have 30 goals in all competitions by then, therefore leaving Hodgson no choice but to give him a chance.
