Harry Kane Spurred On By England's World Cup Class Of '66

Tuesday, 10 Jul, 2018

England captain Harry Kane is adamant the Three Lions can rewrite the history books by going all the way and winning the World Cup in Russian Federation.

England's World Cup team players are being hailed as national heroes by managing to successfully get us to our first semi-final in the tournament since 1990.

Speaking to reporters in the aftermath of the 2-0 win against Sweden in the quarter-finals, Kane said: "It's awesome to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament".

Leicester City have told Harry Maguire that they will make him the highest paid player at the club alongside Jamie Vardy this summer.

"Harry Kane is a born goalscorer" and "he is just like" England legendary striker Gary Lineker, says Henry Abiodun ahead of Saturday's World Cup quarter-final clash against Sweden.

"But look, we said we wanted to write our own history".

The Tottenham Hotspur star replied to a tweet by paediatric radiographer Liam Herbert, who shared a video of Ben Williams receiving a replica World Cup trophy. I mean the moment you head it proper, you feel it's a good one.

Sweden against all odds are in the quarter-finals of a World Cup filled with upsets, and Abiodun feels England will need to do extra to avoid being added to the list of casualties at the finals in Russian Federation. As it stands, we think his loyalty to the Foxes could keep him grounded.

"No one wants to go home".

Kane remains focused on England's semifinal rival, who will be the victor of the game between Russian Federation and Croatia. Everyone wants to finish the job and we are excited to try and do that. "It means so much to us all and we're singing the chants, we know the chants and we're going along with them".

The following day on Wednesday it will be Croatia who is taking on England, and that match is going to be just as exciting as the one above.

"Look, we are looking forward to hopefully finishing strong".
