England News: Kane wants to complete job

1 year ago

In the latest England news, skipper Harry Kane says he is determined to see his side finish the job and go all the way to win the World Cup in Russia.

The Tottenham Hotspur star has led from the front with his performances at the tournament and managed to score six goals in the process.

England, who are 11/8 with bet365 to beat Croatia in the semi-finals on Wednesday, have already seen off Colombia and Sweden in the knockout stages of the competition.

Kane has been pleased with England progress in Russia so far but is not willing to just settle for a semi-final spot and is determined to lift the trophy at the end of the final on July 15.

He said: “As a player and as a professional I know that I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people and inspire kids watching this tournament. It’s amazing because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England. So to be here now, leading this team out, I’m so proud.

“No-one wants to go home. Everyone wants to finish the job and we are excited to try and do that. We want to be here until the end. We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional.”

England don’t appear to have any injury concerns ahead of the encounter with the Croatians, with Dele Alli coming through the quarter-final victory against the resilient Swedes unscathed.

Jordan Henderson appears to have shaken off a minor hamstring strain picked up in the last game.
