Gareth Southgate: 'Harry Kane has Mauricio Pochettino to thank'

Gareth Southgate: 'Harry Kane has Mauricio Pochettino to thank'”

Southgate will call upon Kane for next week's World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania, along with clubmates Eric Dier and Dele Alli, and the Three Lions manager believes that the trio are benefiting from Pochettino's training-ground methods.

Southgate is relaxed over the England players spending time with their partners and families at the team hotel during the World Cup - something that has become an unlikely hot-button issue within the British tabloid press over recent tournaments.

"I had a conversation with Brendan (Rodgers, Celtic boss) about him at the end of last season", Southgate said.

Sinclair has earned plenty of plaudits since joining Celtic from Aston Villa, helping them to a domestic treble last season.

The 28-year-old has made an impressive start to the season, claiming his 10th goal in Celtic's 3-0 Champions League victory over Anderlecht on Tuesday.

England will nearly certainly top Group F - but Southgate won't be surprised if Scotland nick a play-off spot.

England manager Gareth Southgate has cooled talk of Celtic's Scott Sinclair earning an global call-up.

And he added: "I would be happy to have that conversation (what he needs to do to break through) with him but I don't think it's appropriate to talk about performance aspects in public".

Scotland are in the same pool and know they can guarantee second spot, and a probable play-off place, by defeating Slovakia at Hampden on Thursday and Slovenia away on Sunday.

"I'm not a huge believer in burnout". Somebody like Harry Kane will do that.

"We should have enough expertise to get that to the best possible level".

"He'll do whatever it takes to give himself the best chance, he's meticulous about his diet, meticulous about the way he recovers from games". Those latter stages of games are the ones that have a real physical impact.
