Tottenham youngster Kane aiming for international football

The Spurs starlet is hoping to be called up to Stuart Pearce's England under-21 squad this September after impressive performances with Millwall in the Championship last season

Tottenham youngster Harry Kane is hoping his performances last season for Millwall will earn him a place in Stuart Pearce's England under-21 squad.  

The 18-year-old had an impressive loan spell with Millwall, making 24 appearances and finding the net nine times. Kane’s performance has caused a stirring amongst several Premier League clubs and has led to Pearce praising the young striker.

Having already played for England Under-19's, the striker is desperate to make Pearce's squad for September's European Championship qualifying games against Azerbaijan and Norway.  

"It would be great to be involved for the under-21's in September and [Pearce] told me that the experience I am gaining this season in the Championship is invaluable for a player of my age," Kane told Sky Sports.

"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."
