With England enjoying a period of success in recent years, Harry Kane has been at the forefront of positivity. 

However, as the Three Lions prepare to take on Hungary in a qualifier this week, 888Sport’s The Eye Test analysed whether his role in the England eleven is diminishing. 

England have enjoyed a successful qualifying campaign thus far, having only dropped two points in seven games after a resounding win over Andorra. 

As part of the podcast, Flex, Rory Jennings, Steven McInerney and Ped of ToffeeTV came together to discuss Kane’s evolving role in the England setup and whether poor Premier League form could see the talisman dropped. 

Everton fan Ped emphasised his belief that Kane should retain his place, even if it comes at the expense of the Blues’ own striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who will be vying for a spot in the England eleven. 

Furthermore, the deeper analysis of Kane’s role comes as the resurgent Tammy Abraham continues to strengthen his claim for a spot – having scored against Andorra and enjoyed a solid start to life in Rome. 

The panel agreed that Abraham may well be the man to take the mantle from Kane, however, they underlined their belief that Kane will come good and return to form.
