Peter Taylor believes England’s European hopes lie with goal scoring trio

first_imgFormer England Under-21 manager Peter Taylor believes Harry Kane, Danny Ings and Saido Berahino can fire Gareth Southgate’s side to European glory.Taylor, who has managed the Under-21 squad on two occasions, insists the competition can be won if the trio continue their Premier League goalscoring form, with England probably facing their toughest challenges in the group stages.The 62 year-old said: “If Harry Kane, Danny Ings and Saido Berahino all score, we have a good chance.“We’re in the toughest group, there’s no doubt about it.“If you look at the other group, with the likes of Czech Republic, Serbia and Germany, you’d probably prefer to be in that one as our group is really tough.”Kane’s inclusion in the squad came as a surprise due to his role with the senior side and his busy schedule with Tottenham, but Taylor believes that if he, and anyone in Southgate’s team play well, then a phone call from Roy Hodgson will soon be on the horizon.He told the Sunday Scoreboard: “I’m quietly confident we will have a good tournament and then the players that play well will be in Roy Hodgson’s mind.“There used to be a lot of older players but now there are a lot more younger players so that if you’re in the Under 21s, there’s a fair chance your team-mate is in the senior team and it’ll give you more confidence knowing that they could be picked if they have a good tournament.
