Kane: England captaincy no burden

Harry Kane insists he feels no added pressure captaining England as he prepares to lead the side out in their final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
The Tottenham striker’s sublime club form, in which he has scored seven goals in his last three outings, has seen him rewarded with the Three Lions armband ahead of tonight’s clash against Slovenia and Sunday’s trip to Lithuania.
However, critics have suggested the added burden of holding the captaincy could hamper his goal-scoring form, but Kane insists that is not the case.
“Having an armband on your arm doesn’t make any difference to how you play and if you score goals or not,” said the Spurs striker.
“It makes me very proud. Growing up as a kid you dream about playing for your country and being captain as well. Walking out at Wembley will be an amazing thing for me, personally.
“I’ll just go out there and do my best for the team, try and score goals and win the match.”
