Fans should support England until World Cup - Kane

The England captain asked the fans to support them until the World Cup.

Harry Kane

asked

England

fans to support this team until the World Cup and not look for changes.

The Three Lions were relegated to the lower division of the Nations League last night after losing against

Italy

, and they failed to win in their last 5 games. The Three Lions, who reached the semi-finals in the 2018 World Cup and were finalists in Euro 2020, are among the contenders for the Qatar World Cup, and in two months they have to face USA, Wales and Iran. Southgate has been criticized for recent results but Kane has urged the fans to support them.

"I understand the frustration of the fans. I was an England fan - and I still am an England fan whether I'm playing or not. So I understand it. But ultimately we are going to be judged on what happens come November.

"If we have a successful tournament, I'm not sure people will be worried about the spell we've had over the summer - and that's the bottom line. We need to improve. We know that.

"The fans are always great and stick with us. I know they will be there on Monday supporting us [against Germany] and everyone will be excited about the World Cup, regardless of what happens. Hopefully, we can repay them with some good results."

Kane has not performed well in the recent English games and has scored only one goal in the last 6 games, which was from the penalty spot. He added:

"We're a really strong group. We're always honest with one another. We are always talking about how we can improve. The players are ultimately the ones on the pitch and need to take that responsibility.

"Gareth is always there to try and do that. But we know as players that we need to do better. We're just not quite doing the business at the moment, especially on the attacking front.

"It's disappointing, for sure, but I'm a confident guy. I also know the strikers and attacking players here are confident players. It's not going to affect us too much. We just need to try to turn that around, and that starts on Monday."
