Kane to captain England against Scotland

10 Juin, 2017, 21:25 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Hampden Park will witness the latest chapter in the Tottenham striker's fairytale rise after Gareth Southgate confirmed the 23-year-old as captain for Saturday's crunch World Cup qualifier against Scotland.

He told a press conference: "Harry Kane will captain the side tomorrow". "The most important thing when we came in was to develop people, look at who can lead, who wants to lead, who can be encouraged to lead and to take pressure off one person that all the expectation is on, because I think that's been a problem in the recent history". People said there were a lack of leaders. I'm sorry, but if players don't have those qualities in their locker from the start, sending them to wallow in mud and climb over tall obstacles won't give it them. But I felt it important to try and give people the opportunity to lead in different ways.

Kane will be making his first appearance under Southgate, having missed England's last six games due to various injuries.

"You see him do that game in, game out, in the finals, in the semi-finals", Kane said.

"For me personally, I don't think so", said the Spurs striker, the Premier League's top scorer in each of the last two seasons.

"I'm 23 now. Hopefully, I've got quite a few more years left and I can learn and get better and really push forward".

The pressure put on the England captain in major tournaments may be one reason why Southgate is keen to share the duty around and he says there is no hurry to appoint an official skipper.

Asked how Kane had reacted to the news, Southgate replied: "He was pretty chuffed (pleased)". It's a great honour for a player and their family.

Scotland remain hopeful of securing a play-off place for the 2018 finals in Russian Federation, as they now sit fourth in Group F, two points behind second-place Slovakia. Star striker Jamie Vardy is also meanwhile unavailable owing to a "minor injury" picked up during injury.

"English football fans have a great reputation around the world for the numbers in which we travel, the passion we demonstrate in supporting our team, and our ability to party enthusiastically well into the night", the organisation said in an editorial in its England fanzine, Free Lions.

"Everybody is aware after what happened in Germany".

"And that's why we are firmly of the opinion that we'd be much better off without some of the lame and boring songs about World War Two or the IRA".
