Harry Kane Hopes Tottenham Goals Can Earn England World Cup Spot

In-form Spurs youngster says “you have to dream”.

Check in to West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has admitted that he is dreaming of taking part in this summer’s World Cup with England.

Kane only made his first Premier League start for Spurs earlier this month in the 5-1 win over Sunderland, but he marked the occasion with a goal and has been a part of Tim Sherwood’s starting XI ever since.

Further strikes against West Bromwich Albion and Fulham give Kane stats of three goals in three top-flight starts for Tottenham, and fans have responded to his impressive form by launching a Twitter campaign to get the player to Brazil 2014.

The 20-year-old says that he is flattered by the ‘Get Kane on the plane’ campaign, but insists that he is just focusing on ending the domestic season on a high by continuing to perform well for Spurs.

“It’s flattering that the fans said that. But I can honestly say I’m just focusing on scoring as many goals between now and the end of the season,” he told The Sun.

“Who knows, if I get a few more in the three remaining matches, then anything is possible because stranger things have happened.

“Just look at what my mate Andros Townsend did at the start of the season. All of a sudden he was in the England squad and helps us get to the World Cup. You have to dream.

“Mr Hodgson watches the matches and does give young players in form a chance. All I can do is keep scoring.”

Townsend was hailed as England’s saviour in October after starring in the Three Lions’ victories over Montenegro and Poland.

However, the winger’s stock has since lowered following a series of uninspiring displays during an injury-interrupted second half of the season.

Roy Hodgson has claimed that he will select his 23-man squad based on form rather than reputation, and that could open the door for Kane, who has scored more league goals that West Ham United target man Andy Carroll this term.

Hodgson is likely to take four strikers to the World Cup, with Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge and Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck almost certain to be part of that number.
