Harry Kane Feels UEFA Nations League Triumph Could Be Bigger Than World Cup Glory

Harry Kane feels if England manage to lift the UEFA Nations League title in 2019 it could prove to be more meaningful than their World Cup triumph.

The Three Lions are scheduled to take on the Netherlands in the semifinal of this inaugural tournament in June and could end their long wait for a trophy on the international stage.

England finished fourth in the last summer’s World Cup as they failed to get past Croatia in the semi final. Their habit of choking at crucial stages used to be a common thing in most tournaments but in recent past, they have managed to showcase exemplary performances.

The England captain said, “If we win the Nations League, I think it will top it.

“It’s not very often you have the chance to win a trophy in an England shirt. If we have a good summer and win that trophy, in my eyes it’s a better year.

“2018 was fantastic but the main thing for me is the team, trying to win things, and we have a chance this year.”

“People expect us to do well and before the World Cup there were no expectations,

“It’s great that we’ve turned that around and it’s up to us as players to use that experience we have had to manage the expectations now.

“I think we have handled it [the weight of expectation] really well since the World Cup. “
