Tonight at Wembley Stadium in London, England will face Italy in their first European final. The Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes he will face the best defenders in the world.
Of course they are two amazing defenders, they’ve had great experience over their careers,”
said the striker in his press conference.
“I’ve played against them before, as a striker I want to play against the best defenders in the world and those two are up there.
“It’s England vs. Italy, we have great belief in the team and strength in the squad. There are many things that can happen in the Final and we want to make sure we’re on the right side of it.”
Kane laughed off suggestions the England team are too ‘nice’ to get the cup.
“I don’t think so, that’s the personality of the players, they are humble. We have a real determination to win. So I feel like in modern football there aren’t so many mind games. We have a real focus and vision of where we want to be, without that we wouldn’t be in the situation we are in.”
This is England's first final in a major tournament since the 1966 World Cup.
“We’ve been knocking down barriers along the way, but we started this tournament aiming to win it and we have that opportunity tomorrow night.
“To see the fans and the reception we’ve had, it shows us how big of an occasion it is. Obviously, in Russia we were in our own bubble and saw videos of back home, but didn’t experience it ourselves. We know how much it means to English fans all over the country and hope to do them proud again tomorrow night.”
Kane has scored four goals so far in Euro 2020 and can win the Golden Boot by scoring in the final.
