Sam Allardyce will give Harry Kane another chance to shine, despite the Tottenham forward suffering a poor Euro 2016 campaign and failing to score a club goal this season, according to a report.

The Express claim that Kane will be the focal point of England’s attack when they take on Slovakia in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday in Trnava.

It is said that Wayne Rooney, who was kept on as captain by his national manager, will be deployed behind Kane in a number 10 role as Allardyce opts for a 4-2-3-1 formation in his first game in charge.

Kane, 23 endured a miserable Euro 2016 with his home country during the summer, when the striker failed to find the net as his side were dumped out by minnows Iceland in the knockout stages.

But his national manager has shown a sign of faith in the England man ,who has scored five goals in 16 appearances on the international stage.

Kane was the Premier League’s top scorer last season with 25 goals in 38 games, but similar to last season where he failed to score in the first six games, the forward has started this season in the same fashion.
