Harry Kane: "Any player growing up would dream to be England captain"

The Tottenham Hotspur striker revealed he is brimming with confidence ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier and believes he could score "three or four" goals against Gordon Strachan's side.

That hugely prolific club form is yet to fully translate to the global stage, with Kane sitting on five goals from 17 caps.

"From what I have heard about Harry Kane he's not a showboater", said Provan, speaking at William Hill media event. It won't have gone unnoticed by our boys. "It's definitely something I aspire to do", Kane said. I hope our boys stand up to that and make sure they don't get it all their own way. "Any player growing up as a footballer dreams of being England captain one day and I am no different".

Having proved the critics wrong at club level Kane now wants to improve his relatively modest scoring record for England: he has five goals from 17 worldwide appearances, and he is now aiming to boost that significantly.

'I would love to score on Saturday and get back out there and get that feeling again. I felt in the last couple of seasons before that, I didn't do that as well.

"You always get judged on the big games and the big moments. That's hopefully something I can achieve one day".

The Spurs striker is expected to lead the line for England when they take on Scotland in their World Cup Qualifier on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD, and knows reaching Russian Federation 2018 is vital for his own personal objectives.

"I'm no different. I want to prove to everyone here and everyone across the world that I'm one of the best strikers out there". "Hopefully that can start at the weekend".

"As a striker, you know you are always under scrutiny like that and people are always going to look to you for goals whether it is club or country". I am very confident at the minute.

"I want to be in that world-class bracket".

"I would suggest that they need somebody a little bit closer to Harry Kane's standard as a back up, rather than Vincent Janssen, but the challenge is finding somebody who will be happy to play second fiddle", Le Tissier said.

With club football, you're in a rhythm all the time, but with your country it's not like that - you meet up now and then and it's something I've got to get used to. I'm 23 now. Hopefully I've got a few more years left and I can learn and get better and really push forward. That hasn't changed just because we play for the team now.
