Gareth Southgate says he wants Harry Kane to show how good a striker he is at next year’s world cup.
The World Cup draw is slated to hold today, with the Three Lions drawn in pot 2 and could face a tough team in the first round.
And Southgate hopes Kane takes advantage of the opportunity to prove his ability on the global stage.
“I’m certain it is Harry’s ambition to be the best in the world,” he told reporters. “If that is his ambition, then this is the stage to go and show it.
“As a player, you are judged a lot by what happens with your club, but in the end the world stars are ultimately judged by what they do with their country, and in major tournaments.
“This is the stage for all of our guys to show exactly the level they are capable of.”
