Cahill aims to build on feelgood factor

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill insists there is a positive vibe within the England squad as they prepare for Friday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania.

England have bounced back well from last summer's World Cup campaign and have won all of their Euro 2016 qualifiers to date, including an impressive triumph in Switzerland.

England are 1/1 to beat Lithuania 4-0 and are 1/1 to win the match after falling behind.

"There's still a feelgood factor from the summer results," said former Bolton Wanderers star Cahill.

"We meet up positive, we recapped on previous games and remembered that we are playing well and going in the right direction."

Much of the focus in the build-up to Friday's match has been on Harry Kane, who has been added to England's senior squad for the first time following a superb season with Tottenham.

Kane has scored 29 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season, including a hat-trick in Saturday's dramatic 4-3 victory against Leicester City.

Cahill said of Kane: "I've played against him three times and he's a handful, a fantastic talent. For me he has all the attributes.

"He is a real top player. It is down to the manager if he starts but they're all good enough to play.

"We have four top strikers all chomping at the bit and who are all capable of starting - Harry is in that bracket. I'm sure he feels ready to play."

England are 1/1 to win Euro 2016 outright, while Kane can be backed at 1/1 to score at any time against Lithuania.
