Spurs starlet hoping to impress

Tottenham's highly-rated young striker Harry Kane hopes that his performances for Millwall last season will earn him an international call later this year. The 18-year-old caught the eye during a four month loan spell at Millwall, notching nine times in 24 starts. His performances haven't gone unnoticed, with England under-21 manager Stuart Pearce praising Kane's progress, plus several Premier League clubs monitoring his situation at White Hart Lane. Kane has already earned eight caps for the England Under-19's, scoring five times, but he told Sky Sports that making Pearce's squad for September's European Championship Qualifying double header against Azerbaijan and Norway would be a huge honour. "It would be great to be involved for the under-21's in September and he told me that the experience I am gaining this season in the Championship is invaluable for a player of my age," he said. "There is pressure on every game at this level and he was pleased with how I've handled that, so hopefully I can continue to improve and push on to earn a place in the squad and then make a name for myself there as well. "Under-21 level seems to be the stage where a lot more publicity is involved, with televised games and high profile players included. "I want to be one of those bigger names involved because if I can get in and impress then the only way up from there is the senior squad, which is my long-term aim."
