A rare site from an English national team is the players putting their club rivalries to rest and uniting under the national team banner. However, Kane is confident this group players are capable of doing exactly that.
“We’ve got such a great bond and, although we’re at different clubs, when we come here everyone’s fully focused on here,” Kane said.
“You don’t have to talk to people about switching off from club football.
“Everyone just naturally does it and I think the fact we’ve played with each other in club sides and younger England sides [means] we’re all good friends.
“Whether you’re at Spurs or [Manchester] City or Liverpool, we’ve known each other long enough that we’ve become mates.
“When you come here, you just look forward to meeting up and being friends.”
“It’s a new tournament, but it’s still a chance to win a trophy in an England shirt, and 1966 was a long time ago,” the 25-year-old said.
“We’re going to try and take full advantage. We all want to win trophies and have the experience of sharing that with the group and the fans, so it’s a huge incentive.
“The fans are going to be out in numbers and hopefully be part of history.”
