Harry Kane outshines Wayne Rooney in England training

England fans cannot get enough of Harry Kane at the moment, and with good reason. The Tottenham star has given Premier League defenders the run around this season and is now doing the same with our national squad.

Kane is currently enjoying his first sessions with Roy Hodgson's men after receiving his first call-up last week. He is currently vying for a starting place against Lithuania with Danny Welbeck and Daniel Sturridge and has done his chances the world of good in shooting practice.

A video, released by FATV, shows footage from the latest session at England's training base shows Kane, Welbeck and Wayne Rooney trying their luck against Joe Hart and Jack Butland. In just 90 seconds it becomes clear who the sharpest shooter is.


With Hodgson watching on, it is hard to see him choosing Welbeck or Sturridge over Kane for the Euro 2016 qualifier. The Arsenal striker is joint top scorer in the qualifying campaign so far, but has failed to replicate that form on the domestic stage.

He has scored just eight goals in 26 starts for the Gunners but has continually impressed for England. However, Kane's form leaves him favourite to start against the team ranked 94th in the world rankings.

England are under little pressure in their group and Hodgson will see it as an excellent chance to try to bed Kane into the squad.

Rooney partnership

One person almost certain to start regardless of his form in training is the captain Rooney. The £300,000-a-week Manchester United star could become England's highest ever goal scorer with a hat-trick against Lithuania but will have to improve his accuracy if he is to equal Bobby Charlton's record.

It looks more likely that Rooney will be providing for Kane in a deeper role.
