Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is backing England boss Roy Hodgson to include Manchester United ace Marcus Rashford in his final EURO 2016 squad.
The 18-year-old recently helped his side win the FA Cup following a 2-1 extra time victory over Crystal Palace this past Saturday.
He became a surprise selection in the 26-man provisional England squad after impressing ever since making his senior debut earlier in the campaign following injuries to a host of top stars.
Kane is expected to be selected in the final squad for the upcoming European competition, but the Spurs star also believes that Rashford deserves a spot.
“He’s been outstanding. Full credit to him, he deserves his place,” he is quoted by The Sun.
“He’s young, he’s come in and shown no fear of playing on the big stage and he’s just expressed himself.”
The striker was unavailable for the friendly against Turkey yesterday due to his involvement in the FA Cup Final, but could make his appearance against Australia this coming Friday.
He managed to register 15 senior appearances in all competitions this term, scoring a total of eight goals while providing another two assists in the process.
