Harry Kane revealed his eagerness to win a major silverware with England ahead of the upcoming European Championship.

Harry Kane has revealed his utmost desire which is to win a major silverware with his nation England. He believes that if he were to retire without lifting a trophy, it would count as a “failure” for him.

Yet another period of international duty awaits for the Tottenham striker, with the Three Lions heading into the delayed European Championship. With great difficulties in choosing the squad, Gareth Southgate finalised the names for the competition.

Despite having a strong squad, England have not been able to put up to their standards. They finished fourth in the 2018 World Cup and third in the 2018-19 Nations League. And Kane has his eyes set on making things happen for his country.

“I hope my mum doesn’t mind me revealing her age, but she was born in 1966. My dad was born in 1964. So he was two when England won the World Cup,” Kane told the Evening Standard.

“That is how long ago we are talking about, and it’s down to us to put that right. I think if I finish my career as a footballer without winning a major trophy for England, I would see that as a failure. 

“I know we are still progressing, still got room to improve. But that is the goal and I think we can do that.”

Regarding his colleagues, he said: “There is a lot of expectation but there is a lot of belief. I know these players and I feel we are ready for anything.”

“There are some great teams — France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal. And to win it we know we have to beat some of those teams, and that is the challenge.” 

“But I know for sure, none of those teams will want to face us. A lot of their best players play with us and against us, week in, week out; they know we are a tough opponent for any of them.”
