Mauricio Pochettino backs Harry Kane for England call-up

Mauricio Pochettino backs Harry Kane to win an England call-up after the forward netted his 12th goal of the season in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 victory over Burnley.

Mauricio Pochettino has backed Harry Kane to earn a call-up to the England squad after the youngster netted his 12th goal of the season in Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 victory over Burnley.

Kane got the ball rolling for Spurs before Erik Lamela scored the winner at White Hart Lane, and Pochettino praised the forward's "big talent" after the game.

"It's becoming normal now that Harry Kane has scored," he told BBC Sport. "We are very happy with him.

"He worked very hard and scored a goal, which is very important for the striker. I wish for my player the best but Harry has big potential and he's a big talent.

"If he continues to play in the same way, maybe the opportunity will come for him to play for the national team."

The victory was Tottenham's third win in seven days.
