The striker hopes to be the first Three Lions captain to lift a major trophy in nearly 60 years
Harry Kane says he dreamed of getting a trophy with England as the striker said he was keen to follow in Bobby Moore’s footsteps.
Moore is the last English captain to lift an important trophy, and made the Three Lions famous during the 1966 World Cup.
And Kane could end the trophy drought on Sunday as he leads England to Italy in the Euro 2020 final, in a match he has been dreaming about for some time.
What did Kane say?
“When your name is mentioned in the same company as such players, it just gives you motivation and gives you confidence,” he said when asked to follow in Moore’s footsteps.
‘Of course it would be an incredible achievement. We all waited so long that players, as a public, as people would see us in a final. So these are the opportunities that you have to seize with both hands.
‘We have a great chance to win our second big trophy as a country. The players we have produced over the years feel that we are also proud of them.
‘We have to be excited about it, we have to enjoy it, but of course, every football match, we are all winners here, we all want to win, and we will do it every bit to do the job on Sunday. ”
He added: ‘I think for sure as players you think of that moment, you dream of that moment.
“Of course we are all grounded enough to know that we have a very difficult game on hand on Sunday. But there is good faith in this team.
‘We came close a few years ago (reaching the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup). So it was a great sign, a great mentality that created us to jump back into this tournament and go a step further. But of course we all want to win.
“You dream of these moments as a child, and lift trophies for your country, and we now have the opportunity.”
A 50-50 game
Kane, who has yet to win a major club-level trophy with Spurs, has admitted that Sunday’s game is the biggest in his career so far.
On the other hand, there is a team from Italy that shone throughout this tournament, more than earning their place in the final, as Kane says England will now face a team that definitely has the ability to beat the Three To destroy Lions’ potential coronation at Wembley.
“It’s a real 50-50 game, I think,” Kane said.
“From our point of view, we have full confidence in what we have done and how we are set up, and of course we believe we can win the game. But we also know that it will be very difficult. They have some good players, a good experience.
‘In any final, in a big match, you have to tackle it at all times. We know this is the case on Sunday and hopefully we can swing it in our favor. ”
