Kane intends to start against Belgium

first_imgHarry Kane has no intention of resting for England’s Group G finale against Belgium and instead intends to continue with his recent goalscoring hot steak in order to aid his chances at winning the World Cup Golden BootThe England captain is now the leading scorer at the World Cup with five goals in two games following his hat-trick in Sunday’s 6-1 thrashing of Panama.Kane became only the third England player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup match after Geoff Hurst (vs Germany 1966 World Cup final) and Gary Lineker (vs Poland 1986 World Cup).The 24-year-old also became the first player to find the back of the net twice in his first two games since Poland’s Grzegorz Lato in 1974 – who would later win the Golden Boot.Kane has now overtaken scoring rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot award and could further add to his advantage with the latter looking set to be left out of Belgium’s final Group G game against England with an injury.“I want to continue, the form I’m in, but whatever decision the gaffer makes we’ll get behind,” said Kane, according to Sky Sports.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“That’s his decision, I guess, but obviously I want to play. The most important thing is always winning games, and if my goals help my team win then that’s the perfect situation.“There’s a long way to go and a lot of good players just behind me [on the list]. Hopefully, I can just continue and take it into Thursday’s game.”England are currently above Belgium in the Group G table due to a better disciplinary record and Kane is keen to help the Three Lions hold on to their slender lead by ideally winning their final group game.“It’s important we finish top,” he said.“We’re ahead by a yellow card or something but we want to go and try to win the game and take the momentum into the knockout stages.”last_img
