England boss to introduce Tottenham and Burnley stars into Three-Lions setup

England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Burnley’s Danny Ings are ready to lead the line for their country, Daily Star reports.

Kane has already established himself as a key member under Mauricio Pochettino, scoring 23 goals in 26 appearances for his side so far this season.

He has proved himself on more than one occasion during the course of the campaign, netting braces against league leaders Chelsea as well as Arsenal.

Elsewhere, Ings has also proved to be a threat in front of goal for his side despite them struggling in 19th place.

He has so far netted nine goals in 22 starts for the Clarets and could now be introduced to his fellow countrymen on March 19, when England face Lithuania in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

However, despite the pair’s impressive form this season, they are unlikely to overtake the place of the star players at the moment, but if they can impress Hodgson, the future will be bright for the two strikers.

“Is Harry worth a place in the squad now? Of course he is,” he said.

“He certainly deserves a place in the squad as much as say Saido did. Is he worthy of a place like Rooney, Welbeck and Sturridge, whoever…

“Well, that’s something he’ll have to prove. But unless I give him a chance he’ll never get a chance to prove that anyway.”
