Kane on course for World Cup captaincy

Harry Kane looks on course to lead England at the World Cup finals next summer.

The Three Lions are in need of a new full-time captain following the retirement of Wayne Rooney earlier this season.

The likes of Jordan Henderson, Gary Cahill and Kane have all taken the armband, with the Spurs man skippering the side in their most recent wins over Slovakia and Lithuania – which also saw him claim both goals in the two 1-0 wins.

Boss Gareth Southgate is yet to make his decision, though.

“We have several people that I think can step into that fold now – and that can only benefit us,” Southgate said.

“It’s not just about the matchday – it’s everything around the camp, thinking how you integrate the squad and how you involve other people and the moments to step forward, leading by example, leading by having a quiet word with people.

“There’s lots of things that go towards making a good captain. That won’t happen overnight, we’re talking about leadership experience that comes over a longer period of time.”

Kane is now seen as the man most likely to be leading out England in Russia next summer, and is odds-on to do so.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive for BoyleSports commented: “It’s been almost three months since former England captain Wayne Rooney announced his international retirement and Gareth Southgate has yet to name a permanent replacement as captain.

“Harry Kane is the obvious choice given his scoring record so far this year and having impressed when he led England against Scotland and France.

“With Kane once again set to don the armband for the Three Lions for their upcoming World Cup qualifying fixtures, it’s hard to see anyone else fill the vacant spot.”
