All eyes are on the young Harry Kane as he prepares to make his senior debut in England vs Lithuania at Wembley Stadium on Friday.
Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has commented on Kane’s superb season for Tottenham and believes he’ll impress at international level.
“I think he’s been sensational,” he said of the 21-year-old, who this week received his first senior call up and is expected to start against Lithuania on Friday. “If you look at the start of the season to the level he’s at now, he’s jumped a couple of levels at least.”
The Friday night clash will be in front of a sell-out crowd as England fans come out in force to see Roy Hodgson’s men go head to head with Lithuania in their first game of 2015.
The Three Lions sit at the top of their group with a 100% record and have racked up six back-to-back wins so far this season. Hodgson’s men will be looking to continue this record when the meet Lithuania in the first ever clash between the two sides on Friday.
Hodgson is handling a small injury crisis with Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana joining Fraser Forster and Ben Foster on the sidelines. The absences up front may give Harry Kane an opportunity to prove himself in the starting line-up, with fans keen to see how he performs.
Lithuania, ranked 92 in the world, are currently sitting at fourth in the group with 6 points, after winning two games (San Marino, Estonia) and losing two (Slovenia, Switzerland). They are equal on points with Switzerland heading into their fifth clash.
Lithuania will be without midfielder Arvydas Novikovas and striker Lujas Spalvis, but otherwise coach Igoris Pankratjevas is expecting to field a strong side.
The Baltic club have only one two of their last ten competitive away fixtures, compared to England’s flawless qualifying record in international competitions since October 2009.
