ENGLAND star Harry Kane reckons he could play alongside Callum Wilson – if that is what Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate wants.

Wilson scored on his senior England debut in a 3-0 friendly win over the United States in November and, since then, has increased to 12 goals in 25 games his tally for Cherries this season.

The 27-year-old made his comeback from a seven-week injury lay-off when he scored in the 2-0 victory at Huddersfield on Saturday – a game at which Southgate was in attendance.

Southgate is tomorrow due to name his squad for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

And England skipper Kane believes he could effectively partner Wilson for the Three Lions, if required.

Asked if he could play alongside the Cherries frontman, Kane told the Daily Echo: “Yes, of course. It’s up to the manager but I feel I can play alongside any player.

“Callum came in and did great (in the last international break). He played the first game against the United States and scored and played really well.

“He has been doing great in the Premier League this season and over the past couple of seasons.”

Wilson and Kane have never played alongside each other on the same team in a competitive game.

When Southgate handed Wilson his solitary England under-21 cap in a 3-2 friendly defeat to France in Brest in 2014, the Cherries ace came on as a 66th-minute substitute for Kane.

Wilson had been made aware of Southgate’s attendance at Huddersfield prior to stepping on the pitch.

Asked if that had put more pressure on him, Wilson said: “It doesn’t, to be honest. Given the type of person I am, I can block it out. I just focus on my performance on the pitch.

“I know the manager (Southgate) would know what I am capable of but he was probably just coming to see how I am after coming back from injury. Thankfully, it was a good one.”

Wilson is keen to earn further involvement with England but insists his focus is on club football.

He said: “When you have had a taste of it, you always want more. I’m no different.

“But I am focusing on Bournemouth and making sure I get through the games unscathed. It was a positive result against Huddersfield, which was nice.”

Put to him that Southgate had been present at John Smith’s Stadium, Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: “My priority is to make sure Callum is fit and fine after the game.

“He will of course be looking at the England situation. I’m just pleased to see him playing well for us and scoring.”
