Manchester City defender John Stones has waxed lyrical about Tottenham’s Harry Kane with the striker seemingly in the form of his life after scoring a glut of goals in September.
Kane, 24, has scored 11 goals in nine appearances across all competitions this term, with none of them strikes coming in August.
The England striker was at the double on Saturday to help Spurs secure a 4-0 hammering of Huddersfield but now he turns his focus to international duty on helping Gareth Southgate’s side qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
The Three Lions simply have to avoid losing both of their crucial clashes with Slovenia and Lithuania in the coming days in order to seal their spot in Russia next summer and Man City’s Stones has suggested that Kane will be a huge asset to their chances if he can replicate his club form for his country.
“Harry (Kane) is in great form for his club and he’s raring to go and bring it into international football,” said Stones, as quoted by Sky Sports. “It’s great to have him here at England.
“I know his game, I know how he plays and I know how hungry he is to keep improving.
“Harry has been doing it for years now and like I said – I think he’s got that hunger that he will keep doing it.”
Kane was one of a number of players who had been on fire in the Premier League before Euro 2016 in France last year in what was one of the most abysmal performances by the England national team at a major tournament.
The 21-times England international was infamously put on corner and free kick-taking duties under the charge of Roy Hodgson as he failed to score in four matches.
