Man of the moment Harry Kane 7/4 to score on senior England debut
You can hear the clamour all the way from White Hart Lane to FA headquarters in Soho Square. Tottenham striker Harry Kane has to be handed a maiden call-up to the senior England squad, and Coral make Roy Hodgson odds-on at 2/5 to start the Spurs starlet in the next international against Lithuania.
Kane, 21, is set to be promoted from the Under-21 set-up after netting 23 goals across all competitions for his club. Back him to keep this red hot form going by scoring on a potential and probable Three Lions bow on March 27th at awesome odds of 7/4.
With six in 10 Under-21 caps and 13 Premier League strikes, Kane has catapulted his way into contention not just for a place with the senior squad, but to start.
BBC pundit Danny Murphy feels Hodgson should be earmarking Kane as one of the players to build future England sides around. “Not just selected but in the team,” Murphy added. “He’s so young, but he’s so powerful. I’m struggling to see a weakness in his game.”
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, a man who has been on the end of the man nicknamed ‘Hurri-Kane’ following a recent winning north London derby double, also urged the England boss to cap this emerging talent. “When you have scored the number of goals he has scored, if you don’t put him in there somebody else will give him a passport,” said the Gunners gaffer.
Speaking of a number of goals, Coral offer 6/5 on Kane netting over 3.5 senior international strikes in the calendar year of 2015. With weak opposition in San Marino away and Estonia at Wembley to come in the autumn, this bet looks pretty tempting.
Could Kane become the Three Lions’ all-time top scorer? Wayne Rooney will more than likely surpass Sir Bobby Charlton’s mark of 49, but who in turn will better him? It’s 33/1 that Kane tops the England charts one day.
