England captain Harry Kane aims to prove his class

England captain Harry Kane is determined to continue to impress at the World Cup, as he seeks to prove his worth on the biggest stage of all.

Tottenham striker Kane netted both goals as the Three Lions opened their Group G campaign with a 2-1 victory over Tunisia in Volgograd and the Premier League ace says he is far from finished in Russia.

He told reporters: “I want to prove myself at a major tournament.

I want to be up there with the best in the world and the only way to do that is to perform on the big stage and in the big moments.”

Kane has 15 goals in 25 national team appearances to his name to date and will hope to add to his tally when England take on World Cup debutants Panama in their next game in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday.

Spurs star Kane is 1.53 to score at any time against Panama and is available at 3.40 to score two of more goals in the game.

Ahead of the game at lunchtime on Sunday, England have an injury doubt over midfielder Dele Alli, who had to be replaced late on in the win over Tunisia.

Should he fail to prove his fitness, Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek stands by to deputise, having replaced Alli on Monday to win just his fifth senior cap.

His senior international debut came as recently as just over a month ago and the player who impressed while on loan at Crystal Palace last season says he is happy to take on whatever roles is asked of him.

He told England’s official YouTube channel: “I am happy if I start or if I don’t. I will be ready to come on again if I get the opportunity.”
