Since scoring his first senior goal only seconds into his international debut against Lithuania in March 2015, England’s star striker Harry Kane has hardly looked back. And this time around he will be leading England in the EURO 2020.
Harry Kane was appointed as captain by Gareth Southgate ahead of the 2018 World Cup, after establishing himself as a key member of the squad both on and off the field. He led them to a semi-final finish and also won the Golden Boot, finish the tournament with six goals (the highest).
The Three Lions captain is a powerful all-rounder with a great work ethic and can play with either foot and is good aerially, as well as capable of holding the ball up and bringing others into action.
The Tottenham Striker has expressed an open ambition to become England’s all-time leading goal scorer before the end of his career. Harry Kane has 34 goals in 53 senior appearances for his nation, behind only Wayne Rooney on the all-time list by 19 goals.
The Spurs have used Wembley as their home base on and off in recent years, so Kane has more familiarity playing at England’s national stadium than most. This brings England among the top contenders to win the tournament, as Wembley Stadium will host the semi-finals and Finals of the Euro 2020.
England’s campaign at the Euro 2020
England had a smooth qualification for Euro 2020, winning seven of their eight matches to end above Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria, and Montenegro.
For the tournament proper, England has been placed in Group D which includes the Czech Republic, Scotland, and Croatia. They will face Croatia at Wembley on June 13th in a bid to avenge their World Cup semi-final heartbreak. On June 18th, they will lock horns against Scotland at the same stadium, before competing with the Czech Republic on June 22nd.
