No player has had such a fast improvement as Harry Kane has had over the past two seasons. Is it fair the entire English hopes are on his shoulders? Perhaps not, but he will be the main guy for England in the upcoming Euro 2016.
Harry Kane is everything the English football fans have dreamed of a signature player. He’s tall, good both in the air balls and on the ground, and young; not inexperienced but young enough.
He has been on the radar of many major teams in the European football, but so far has been faithful to Tottenham. His presence has helped the Spurs battle for the EPL title this season, and that’s the same effect football fans are looking when he puts the English team’s shirt.
“Harry’s waited a long time for his chance, but when he got his chance he scored with his first touch of the ball”, England manager Roy Hodgson said.
“It’s now that we have him exclusively to ourselves. We believed in him. He’s got a good career ahead of him, so it’s nice he’ll get an opportunity.”
The Euro 2016 Betting Odds Harry Kane rated the striker at 25.0 to finish as the top scorer in the tournament. For that he needs to help his Nation to go farther than they have been in European Championships.
England have been in two semifinals; first in 1968 and then in 1996 when they were the host nation. For some reason, they have always disappointed in this tournament, and there’s where you can understand how well-suited Harry Kane is for this team.
Kane won’t be alone; he will have Jaime Vardy, who has been outstanding with Leicester this season and Wayne Rooney, who is the most experienced of the three. This three-headed monster will seek to advance in a group that also has Russia, Wales, and Slovakia.
“You have to understand he’s only a young lad – he’s only played one season in the Premier League – and this will help him mentally. You’ll have to be patient. You can see in training he is a quality player, he’s a goalscorer”, said Wayne Rooney about Kane.
Kane is rated at 5.0 at online sportsbook Bodog to finish as the English best scorer; the same number for Vardy and Rooney is a little behind with 6.5. Harry will have the chance to make an impact and a bigger name for himself; he could be the reason England becomes an interesting team in the Euro 2016.
