Is Harry Kane the next big thing for England?

England football fans love their strikers, especially if they start to blossom young. Bobby Charlton, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney will be top of the names that spring to anyone’s mind. And, the latest to join the bandwagon is Harry Kane. The 21-year-old Tottenham Hotspur forward is in red hot form this season for his club and was drafted into the senior side. Coming as a substitute against Lithuania, he continued his rich vein of form and scored within 80 seconds of his introduction. Inarguably, the English fans are showering praises and are expecting greater things from him.

Many followers owe Kane’s prominence and rise in stature to the astute management of Mauricio Pochettino, the current manager of Tottenham. True, in a way; because, Pochettino liberated the player in Kane and gave wings to his play. But, real credit must go to the previous manager Tim Sherwood and also to the string of loan spells. The loans at Leyton Orient, Milwall and Norwich helped him have the right foundation to do well when drafted into the main side.

When the striker was actually drafted into the first side at Tottenham, under Sherwood, Kane was ready to prove his worth. And, it only got better this season. He has already scored 29 goals in all tournaments for his club and 1 for his country. With stats that would make any striker proud, Kane couldn’t stop but score every time he steps on the field. With Danny Welbeck out of the squad for the friendly against Italy, Kane can expect to be involved from the start. Considering his rich form of goals and his poaching instincts, any bet on him ending on the scoring sheet is safe. Unibet offers odds of 3,65 on Kane scoring any time in the match.

His form has been such that his odds on being named the PFA young player of the year are very short. Unibet offers odds of 1,08 on Kane while the odds on Hazard are the next best at 10,0. And if you are really optimistic on the future of Kane in the national shirt, coral is offering odds of 34,0 on him becoming England’s record goal scorer. Long shot, at the moment; but, if Kane carries the same form season after season, who knows!

This is exactly where the challenge for the young player lies in – to replicate his form next season and beyond. The general yard stick for greatness of a player is in having a good second season. Kane may end up being a one-season wonder but the basics are there and experts believe that he will prove good. English fans love adoring their strikers and that generally puts pressure on them.
