Michael Dawson is backing Tottenham teammate Aaron Lennon to light up the World Cup with England.

Dawson, speaking at the SOS Children's Village in Rustenburg where Spurs and the Football Association have provided funds to buy houses for orphans, feels there is a lot more to come from the 23-year-old.

"Aaron can take this tournament by storm," said the Spurs defender. "He is a top player. I've seen it on many occasions in training and playing with him.

"He is player of the highest class and if you give him the ball he will scare anyone."
