Harry Kane: “It Would Be A Dream To Captain England”

Prolific Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has admitted he would love to take the captain’s armband off of England teammate Wayne Rooney.
The 23-year-old is currently vice-captain at Spurs but has captained the club in the absence of Hugo Lloris and during an interview with the Times, Kane revealed “It’s my personality. I’ve always been a leader, on and off the pitch”
Kane became one of the nation’s top scorers, scoring 49 Premier League goals since the start of the 14/15 season. Unfortunately, he couldn’t carry this form to the Euros, although not many of England’s players did.
“I don’t think a captain is just having the ability to shout on the pitch or moan at someone.
“It comes with a whole package … meeting with the fans and having that aura in the dressing room. I’ve managed to captain Spurs a couple of times. It would be a dream to captain Spurs full time and captain England. Who wouldn’t want to do that?”
Kane recently returned to full fitness and tonight bagged two goals in late drama at White Hart Lane which saw a late comeback as Tottenham overcome West Ham by three goals to two. Tottenham remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier League this season.
