Kane: I am proud to be England captain
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane admits he is proud to be appointed captain of The Three Lions.
The 24-year-old striker is in one of the best periods of his career. In this September, he has managed to donate 12 goals for Spurs, and was appointed by coach Gareth Southgate as one of the new captains of the England team.
He had time to adapt The Three Lions in the World Cup qualifying match against France and Malta, with the player feeling proud to be able to live the role.
“Yes, I was wearing a captain’s armband, and this moment is very proud,” Kane told reporters.
“I feel like one of the leaders in the team.”
“But Gareth Southgate says that he still needs time [to select team captain]. In the team, we also have a lot of leaders. ”
“My main focus is to score, and continue my performance until October. That’s the most important thing, I’m talking to my performance on the pitch. ”
“Whoever Gareth chose as captain, our team will definitely support him.”
“We still have not qualified, and we should be able to win on Thursday’s game [against Slovenia] later. It will make our task on Sunday easier [game against Lithuania]. “
