Harry Kane was the match-winner for Tottenham in their London derby with QPR on Saturday and afterwards the striker admitted it would be “a dream” to be called into the England squad later this month.
Kane took his tally of Premier League goals to 16 for the season with a goal in each half as Spurs held off a late rally from QPR, sparked by a goal from former Tottenham midfielder Sandro.
His brace at Loftus Road means 21-year-old Kane is now just one behind Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero in the goalscoring charts.
England manager Roy Hodgson has been fielding questions recently on whether he will hand Kane his first call-up for the games against Lithuania and Italy at the end of the month and now the striker has admitted he would love to receive that call.
“Any English player would love to play for England – it would be a dream – but there are a lot of great players in England. I just have to keep concentrating and do the best I can for Spurs,” said Kane.
Kane will be back in action for Tottenham when they go to Old Trafford to face Manchester United next Sunday.
Spurs are on offer at 4.12 to defeat Man United, strong favourites at 1.77 with the draw at 3.42.
Victory over Louis van Gaal’s team would allow Spurs draw level with United as the race for top four places continues to heat up.
Kane says he must continue to do well for his club and international recognition will take care of itself.
“There are still a few games before the international break and I want to do the best I can for Tottenham. That’s what I’m looking to do. Get some more wins between now and then and we’ll see what happens,” he added.
