Harry Kane is "loving every minute" right now as the Tottenham striker prepares to meet up with England for the first time buoyed by a maiden Premier League hat-trick.

The 21-year-old's scarcely-believable rise continues apace, with the Chingford-born forward making it 29 goals in all competitions with his treble against Leicester on Saturday.

Kane's performance helped inspire out-of-sorts Tottenham to a 4-3 win and saw him move top of the top-flight scoring charts - a remarkable feat considering the first of 19 league goals did not arrive until November 2.

It capped a whirlwind few days for the striker, who yesterday met up with the England senior squad for the first time ahead of the matches with Lithuania and Italy.

"I can't wait," Kane said. "It has been a dream to be called up but obviously I want to go and play.

"There is great competition for places and hopefully I can just do my best whilst I am away and see what happens.

"(I want to play for England) like any boy would. That's what I want to do. There is great competition and I have to keep working hard if I want to get a place in the team."

Kane insists he is able to savour such moments, despite so many things coming "thick and fast".

It is form he wants to keep up and retains a focus on club matters. Saturday's win kept Spurs' hopes of a top-four finish alive and was the perfect response to their insipid display in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester United.
