Two young English strikers took centre stage on Sunday afternoon as Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford each fired their respective teams to crucial Premier League wins.
Kane bagged twice to secure title-chasing Tottenham Hotspur a 3-0 win over Bournemouth, a double which makes him the division’s top scorer outright with 21 goals.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Rashford continued his fairytale rise by clinching Manchester United a 1-0 derby victory over Manchester City which keeps alive their top-four hopes.
Their exploits have got patriotic tweeters excited about the future of England’s forward line. Some are thinking long-term, but others want to see Kane and Rashford together now!

Pleased that Rashford is continuing to look like the real deal. With potential to join Harry Kane in a world-class English striker pairing.

Rashford and Kane should be the English strikers in the Euros. Just pure goalscoring ability. A very Un-English trait recently. #ENG
