Roy Hodgson has confirmed he will certainly be in line for the national side come the next round of international friendlies, but just who will he be competing against for a starting birth.

The Burnley stalwart is a similar age to Kane, but whilst he’s certainly impressed he has failed to make the same impact in his first season in the Premier League with the Clarets.
