He is expected to lead the line for England once again at the World Cup in Russia this summer, and he has the hope of a nation resting on his shoulders.

The Tottenham hitman spoke exclusively to Four Four Two magazine about this summer's World Cup, and pinpointed his most memorable moment as an England fan:

“I’d say his penalty against Argentina was my standout memory of watching England at World Cups. My manager now wouldn’t be too happy about that one, but I remember it so clearly. Given all he’d been through after 1998, for him to step up like that and win us such a huge game was a great moment. He was a big role model for me."

It was, of course, Pochettino who fouled Michael Owen in the penalty area, before David Beckham smashed home what eventually turned out to be the winner in the group stage contest.

The then 30-year-old centre-back then went on to nearly score an equaliser for his country late on, but England held on for the win which saw them qualify for the knock-out stages from Group F, whilst Argentina missed out.

Kane will be hoping to fire his country to success this summer, as England look to win their first World Cup since 1966.
