Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham is backing in form Tottenham striker Harry Kane to get the call from England manager Roy Hodgson , and be named to the squad to play Lithuania and Italy in March.

The 21-year-old Londoner has already been capped at U-21 level for England and has now notched up his 22nd goal of the season after scoring both goals in Spurs 2-1 win over Arsenal at the weekend while the England manager was in attendance.

Beckham now believes he should be called up to the senior squad telling the Daily Mirror: “Being English, and seeing someone like Harry and the way he’s playing and the way he’s played this season, he’s having a stunning year.

“When someone’s performing like he’s been performing, then he’s always going to get noticed by an England manager and pundits.

“I think everyone is singing his praises, and rightly so. He’s 21 years old, he’s working hard and has got a good head on his shoulders, so we will see.

“It doesn’t matter what age you are – if you’re good enough then you should play.”
