Arsene Wenger believes Harry Kane's performances this season mean England have to call him up - or risk losing him.

After Kane was Tottenham's hero in the come-from-behind 2-1 win in the north London derby, the Arsenal boss, tongue in cheek, said England need to give the 21-year-old a cap sooner rather than later.

"He was good as always. He grows and he has a good determination. He doesn't stop, he keeps going," he said to BT Sport after the game.

"When you have scored the number of goals he has scored, if you don't put him in there (England), somebody will give him a passport to another country."

England manager Roy Hodgson, who was at Loftus Road to watch Queens Park Rangers and Southampton, next selects his squad for the game against Lithuania on March 27.
