Carrick tips Kane for top

Michael Carrick is sure Harry Kane will be a star for many years to come.

Kane earned his first international call-up last week after banging in 29 goals for Tottenham. The 21-year-old began the season as Spurs' third-choice striker, but he has been the most prolific English forward in the Barclays Premier League so far this term.

Carrick has been most impressed by how Kane has dealt with the pressure of being branded the next big thing in English football.

"The progress he has made has been sensational from the start of the season to the level that he is at now," Carrick said. "He has gone up two or three levels and the thing that has impressed me most about him is that as the spotlight has grown and expectations have grown, he has grown and his performances have improved."
