Nacer Chadli believes his Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane has all the ability to make it at International level with England.

After Daniel Sturridge was ruled out of the European Qualifier at home to Lithuania and the friendly with Italy in Turin, the door has now opened up for Kane to make his Three Lions' debut.

The Chingford-born forward bagged his maiden Premier League hat-trick against Leicester on Saturday.

He has now scored an impressive 29 goals in all-competitions this season and saw him move top of the top-flight scoring charts - a remarkable feat considering the first of 19 top-flight goals did not arrive until November 2.

Belgian winger Chadli says the 21-year-old has what it takes to succeed if is given the chance to start at a sold-out Wembley by head coach Roy Hodgson on Friday.

"He's a very quiet and relaxed guy," said Chadli. "He's good to work with in a group and (I'm sure) he will be accepted easily by the other players.

"He has the quality and the mentality to play at the highest level. He's a very good player and very talented."
