Former England captain David Beckham has tipped in-form Tottenham striker Harry Kane to get a call-up in Roy Hodgson's next England squad.

Kane starred again for Spurs after hitting a brace to win the north London derby against Arsenal last weekend.

“Being English, and seeing someone like Harry and the way he’s playing and the way he’s played this season, he’s having a stunning year,” said Beckham.

“I think everyone is singing his praises, and rightly so. He’s 21 years old, he’s working hard and has got a good head on his shoulders, so we will see.”

Beckham today announced the launch of humanitarian charity Unicef's 7 fund - named after the former England footballer's shirt number - which aims to protect millions of children around the world from danger as he celebrates 10 years as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador.
