Harry Kane says his good relationship with his Spurs team-mates, particularly Dele Alli, can reap dividends for England at Euro 2016.

Kane was among five Tottenham players in the Three Lions starting line-up for the friendly win over Turkey on Sunday, as he played alongside club colleagues Alli, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Kyle Walker at the Etihad Stadium.

Having five Spurs players start an international was a club record and Kane says the fact they work together so regularly on the pitch can only help Roy Hodgson’s side in this summer’s tournament in France.

The forward, who scored an early goal in the 2-1 win, says Alli’s role playing as a No.10 is a partnership he is relishing for England.

He said: “You train with each other every day during the season and obviously when you are on the field you have that understanding, especially with Dele in that position for the first goal against Turkey.

“It’s great to have players who you play with week in, week out in the England team, but whoever is playing we have a lot of great players in the side.

“In training and in pre-season we kind of had that understanding straight away and it is good to have that when you are a striker and the No.10 is playing in behind you. You know you are going to get service and you know you are going to get chances.”
