Kane deserves England call up – Beckham

By on February 10, 2015

He has shown great pace, poise and dedication to team cause and that is why Tottenham’s Harry Kane was very influential in his team’s humiliation of Chelsea on New Year’s Day and also Arsenal just last weekend. Apart from his outstanding performances against these two Premier League giants, Kane is according to David Beckham having a stunning year and the former Manchester United winger feels that no barrier should be placed on the striker’s progress especially into the English national team.

Beckham who retired from international football as the captain of the Three Lions earned 115 caps for his country and was captain for 59 of these matches has joined the array of pundits and former English internationals clamouring for a call up for the Tottenham star into the England team. Kane’s brace against an apparently week Arsenal side took his goal tally in all competition this season to 22 which is the highest in the Premier League at the moment and many have continued to urge the Three Lions boss, Roy Hodgson to factor Kane into his plans ahead of his March fixtures against Lithuania and Italy.

At a Unicef gala on Monday, Beckham believes that Kane is worth every bit of praise that people have been showering on him this season seeing he keeps working hard and also has a good head on his shoulders. The legendary Englishman observed in no light term that the Tottenham star his having a season to remember this year and added that despite his age, if a player is prolific then the coach owes it to himself and the fans to give him a trial.

Beckham is of the opinion that at the moment, Kane is heads and shoulders higher than any other English striker in terms of goal scoring and hopes that when Hodgson leads his men into their Euro 2016 tie against Lithuania at Wembley and then a friendly in Italy against the Italian national team, Kane will likely have a part to play.
