Kane delighted to land armband

Harry Kane has expressed his delight after being handed the captain’s armband for England’s World Cup campaign.

Three Lions chief Gareth Southgate confirmed that the Spurs man would be leading the team.

“It’s impossible not to dream about lifting the World Cup. It’s the biggest competition in the world,” said Kane.

“I believe we can win it – anyone can. I cannot sit here and say we are not going to win it because we could do.

“It is my mindset and I want to win at everything I do. The players in the team want to as well. It is worth fighting for. I am sure we have all had dreams of lifting it and it is an opportunity for us.

“We are not favourites but you look at this season, no-one would have thought Liverpool getting to the Champions League final. You look at Manchester United back in the Sir Alex Ferguson days, they had a young team and dominated the Premier League for years to come.

“Being young is not an excuse – it could be a good thing. I believe we can and that is what we want to try and do. Anything else is not good enough.”

Kane is one of the fancied men for the Golden Boot at the finals, and is 16/1 to take the top-scorers prize in Russia.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Harry Kane will wear the armband at the 2018 World Cup and the Spurs man is 5/4 to be the top England goalscorer in Russia with bet365 also chalking up 4/5 about him scoring 3 or more at the summer showpiece – he’s 16/1 to finish as the tournament’s leading goal-getter.”
