Harry Kane revealed it is a great motivation to imagine he could follow in the footsteps of Bobby Moore at Euro 2020. The legendary center back was the captain when England won the World Cup in 1966. Kane said the final against Italy will be a closely contested affair, one which is too close to call. The England captain has grown in confidence as the tournament has reached the knockout stage. He has scored at least one goal in the last three knockout games. This was after he failed to score in the group stage and failed to register a shot on goal in the first two games.
“Whenever your name is mentioned in the same company as players like that, it only gives you motivation, gives you confidence,” Harry Kane said before the Euro 2020 final. “It will be an incredible achievement, we’ve all waited so long as players as public as people to see us in the final. These are the opportunities to grab with both hands.”
“We have an amazing chance to win our second major trophy as a country. The players we’ve had over the years and produced, we feel proud to be representing them as well,” he added. “We’ve got to be excited about it, we’ve got to enjoy it. We’re all winners here, we all want to win. And we’re going to need every bit of that to get the job done on Sunday.”
Kane believes that winning the final on Sunday at Wembley will surpass any of his achievements at the club level. The 55-year wait has been a little too long to endure. Kane has the experience of playing in a European final when they lost to Liverpool in the Champions League final in 2019.
“It’s the biggest game in my career so far,” added Kane. “Probably the biggest game of all our careers. Doing something special with England would probably surpass anything at club level just because of the magnitude, the long wait for a final, the long wait to win a trophy.”
