Newly-appointed captain Harry Kane believes England can win this summer’s World Cup.
And he would love to unite millions in the same way as the weekend’s royal wedding proved such a popular success.
Months of questions and speculation came to an end on Tuesday morning when the 24-year-old was confirmed as Gareth Southgate’s skipper for Russia.
Kane has long been favourite to wear the armband at the World Cup given the Tottenham striker epitomises the brave, bold and fearless mindset the manager is trying to instil.
Despite being part of the Euro 2016 exit to Iceland, failings of the past do not appear to weigh heavy and the Tottenham striker talked up the Three Lions’ chances in his first press conference as captain.
“I think we can, I think we can win it,” Kane said at St George’s Park.
“We know we’re not favourites to win it. But you look at this season, for example, no one would have thought Liverpool would have got to the Champions League final and they did.
“And you look at maybe Man United back in the Ferguson days when they had a young team and dominated the Premier League for years to come.
“So, it’s not really an excuse that we’re young – it could be a good thing.
“I believe we can win it and that’s what we’ve got to try and do. Anything else is not good enough, really.”
