The 21 year old bagged two goals, bringing his total for the season to 22, in Tottenham’s comeback win in the North London derby against Arsenal.
The win takes the White Hart Lane side above their local rivals in the race for a top four spot and Pochettino believes an England call-up for Kane is on the cards.
“I think Harry showed in this game he is a great player,”
“It was a great performance but my idea is he can still improve. We need to push him to develop because his potential is massive.” Pochettino added.
On the possibility of a first senior cap for England, with Roy Hodgson watching from the stands, Pochettino continued.
“It’s his (Hodgson’s) decision,”
“It’s true Harry is in a good moment and I congratulate him.
“Today he’s the striker with the most goals in all competitions. If the manager thinks he’s a player for the national team, I am happy.”
“The players work very hard on the training ground. We demand a lot from them on the training ground but they deserve this,” he continued when asked what the derby triumph means.
“I’m happy for everyone. I think this is special. We talk about the special game that the derby is and to win three points. We played with our brain but we showed passion and emotion as a team. This energy is important for me.
“I pick the players who deserve to play based on training. I don’t look at names and ages. This is football, it’s our philosophy. It’s important for them to believe in us and that we move forward as a team and a club. We need to go step by step. To keep fighting and working hard.
“We need to keep the same level because we can [finish in the top four]. It’s all in our mind. We know it’s not easy but it’s a challenge to keep everyone fit and fresh this month.”
