Kane hails 'outstanding' Rashford

Tottenham striker salutes United youngster

Harry Kane is looking forward to training alongside Manchester United's "outstanding" young striker, Marcus Rashford.

Despite having made his senior United debut less than three months ago, Rashford has been included Roy Hodgson's provisional England squad for Euro 2016.

The 18-year-old scored eight goals in 17 appearances towards the end of the season, earning a place amongst Hodgson's selection of strikers, alongside Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy, Wayne Rooney and Kane.

When asked about Rashford, Tottenham Hotspur man Kane said: "He's been outstanding. Full credit to him, he deserves his place.

"He's young, he's come in and shown no fear of playing on the big stage and he's just expressed himself.

"He's not been fazed by playing in the Premier League, and hopefully he can take that onto the international stage.

"We are looking forward to meeting him when he reports next week, seeing his ability.

"He's shown (during) the back end of the season that he can score goals and that he's a real talent."

Rashford could well be one of the three players that Hodgson cuts before naming his final squad but, with or without the youngster involved, Kane faces plenty of competition for a place in England's starting XI in France.

"If you're playing for England, you're going to have threats for your position," said the Premier League season's top scorer.

"We're all fighting for our position - no one is secure or a definite starter, so we go from now up to the Euros trying to cement our place."
