Harry Kane can’t stop scoring at the moment, and has received praise from England manager Gareth Southgate.

The Tottenham forward is in a rich vein of form and has continued his impressive goalscoring streak with his club on the international stage.

Kane started and finished both of England’s final World Cup qualifying matches against Slovenia and Lithuania respectively in the recent few days. Not only did the striker wear the captain’s armband in both, he also scored the decisive goals to secure two 1-0 wins for his country.

Southgate, as quoted by the Telegraph, has heaped the praise on his talisman following a hugely successful international break for him.

It’s a fantastic record. His finishing quality is top, as good as anyone I’ve played with or worked with. I’m never in doubt that, if he has a good opportunity, it’ll be on target and there’s a fair chance he scores. We’re fortunate to have him.

Kane has already netted a quite incredible 15 goals in all competitions for club and country this season, and will be keen to continue his incredible form when he returns to Tottenham in the coming week.

Southgate is looking likely to name Kane as his permanent England captain ahead of the World Cup next summer, as he continues to demonstrate his maturity and quality at international level.

I couldn’t be happier with he way he’s led, both in terms of by example on the pitch with his performances, but also with the group. I know everyone wants me to get a shift on [and name the captain], but, again, I want to give myself time.
