former defender Gary Neville insists that the player is at the right place and Southgate can’t replace him as he aims to break records in the national team.
Neville toldSky Sports
of Kane, who has recorded 34 efforts for his country:
"I said last week I felt he was undroppable and I still maintain that.
"I think that if Harry Kane had someone behind him who was even close to him that could go into the team, then you'd say maybe you could look at a change. But you wouldn't change Kane quickly, or easily for that matter.
"I think he'll break all England's records. You don't just drop your captain and your main goal scorer after two matches. But I think the energy, urgency and intensity in England's performance has got to improve for Kane to do well in this tournament.
"In the first game, we felt that was a controlled performance and everyone was really happy with that. But against Scotland, it was a massive drop off. I don't care who you are - as a center-forward, you would have struggled in that game."
Neville has also talked about
, who has recovered from an ankle injury but has not been able to play for England in the tournament, insisting that if the high-profile center-back doesn’t find a place for himself in Southgate’s squad, he may be away from his starting lineup for a long time, so it is a now or never situation for Manchester United’s defender.
"Now's the time for some continuity - we need to start settling on a team. That might mean that Harry Maguire comes back in.
"If he doesn't play against the Czech Republic, I don't know how he can come in against a France or a Portugal in round two. It's now or never for Maguire."
England will host Czech in their next Euro 2020 clash, and they have to win if they want to be the leaders of Group D.
