Kane fully focused on England amid Man Utd, Chelsea links

England captain and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is not thinking about anything other than Euro 2020 glory.

The frontman is leading the Three Lions on and off the pitch this summer as they aim to win a major trophy for the first time since 1966.

Kane, who is subject of transfer speculation linking him to some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, is not bothered by such talk.

The Spurs striker is set to start for the Three Lions against Scotland on Friday.

"I think winning with England has always been a dream, always been an ultimate goal," he told reporters.

"I think whenever you put on this shirt, the aim is to win and obviously we've not won a major trophy for a long, long time.

"We all have that opportunity to be part of something special and I'm relishing that challenge, I love to take that challenge on.

"Of course, there's a lot of hard work and major tournaments aren't easy to win.

"But to have that opportunity now is exciting for me and of course, like me and all the rest of the players, we want to make our country proud, make each other proud, make our friends and family proud.

"Wearing that shirt does that and obviously to win a major tournament would do that as well, so I'll be doing everything and I know everyone else will be doing everything to try and make that happen."
