’s team's third semi-finals in the last three major tournaments as they made it to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018, before reaching the Nations League last four in 2019.

However, they failed to reach the final each time, but Kane is hopeful that this time they can find the way through the final game where they will face either Italy or Spain.

Speaking to the BBC, Kane said:

“What a great performance in a big, big game. There was a lot of pressure on us, we were favorites to win this game, but there’s a lot of pressure and expectation.

"So, to perform like we did was top drawer, another clean sheet and four goals. It was the perfect night for us.

“That’s what we’re building on. We don’t get carried away. We’ve got a great unit here from front to back, working hard for the team and it’s a vital part of winning games and winning tournaments.

"Of course we’ve got a big semi-final coming up, but we’re on the right path. We need to keep working hard and recover well now and then look forward to the semi-final.

“It’s where we wanted to be. We set out for a vision before the World Cup of what we wanted to achieve, where we wanted to go and take this team, and we’re knocking it off step-by-step.

"The World Cup was great but we fell short, we had the Nations League, we had a good run there and now we’re in another semi-final.

"But now it’s about getting over the line, taking the next step and that’s what we have to do on Wednesday.

"The job isn’t done yet, there’s a lot more football to play, but we’re on the right track."
