Frank Lampard says Tammy Abraham can step up and replace Harry Kane for England after the Tottenham striker was ruled out until April with a hamstring injury.

Kane ruptured a tendon in his left hamstring against Southampton on New Year’s Day and is now set to miss England’s fixtures in March against Italy and Denmark.

Abraham’s fine form for Chelsea this season – he is the joint-third top scorer in the Premier League – convinced Gareth Southgate to include him in his final two squads last year.

He scored his first goal for his country against Montenegro in November and is now in a strong position to nail down a place in the England squad for this summer’s European Championships.

Asked whether Abraham could fill Kane’s boots, Lampard said: “Well first of all with Harry Kane, it’s not nice to hear – even though it’s a competitor within the league – of an injury to a player. He’s such a great professional.
