HARRY KANE TO CAPTAIN ENGLAND AT THE WORLD CUP
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been appointed new captain of the England world cup team. England Coach, Gareth Southgate, made this known Monday night during a team meeting at St George’s Park.
"Harry has some outstanding personal qualities," Southgate told his teammates, after describing him as a “meticulous professional".
England was left without a substantive captain when Goalkeeper Joe Hart lost his place in the team. Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and Kane’s spurs teammate Eric Dier have both skippered England recently, in an acting capacity.
Kane, 24, scored 41 goals in all competition for his club this season and expressed delight at the opportunity to lead his country to the world cup.
"I’m so excited for the World Cup, I can’t wait to be there and experience it," Kane said.
"To lead the lads out, it’s going to be special."
