England manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed that, barring injury, Tottenham striker Harry Kane will be in the next Three Lions squad for the international matches against Lithuania and Italy.
Spurs sensation Kane has scored 23 goals in all competitions this season and forced his way into Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino's first choice starting XI, and his form will earn him an international call up.
Hodgson, speaking as a pundit on the BBC's Match of the Day programme, confirmed the Chingford-born revelation will be in the England squad.
'Harry Kane? He is an all-round centre forward, can play right up there against a centre back, or come off and see a pass,' he said.
'He's got technique, he’s always looking to get on the end of crosses, that header against Arsenal was a really classy header. I thought that was a wonderful. If all goes well and he stays fit I’m pretty sure he’ll be in the next squad.'

With Daniel Sturridge back fit and scoring, and Wayne Rooney certain of his place as he aims to beat Bobby Charlton's England goal scoring record, Kane may not start the European Qualification match at Wembley against Lithuania, but with a friendly against the Italians to follow Kane will hope to earn his first senior international cap, having made ten appearances for the England U21 side, scoring eight times.
Given his all round ability, Kane could play with or replace either Sturridge or Rooney, and even play with the duo.
