Kane has sights on the UEFA Nations League trophy

Harry Kane thinks that winning this summer's inaugural UEFA Nations League finals would be greater than their semi-final finish in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The England captain went back home from Russia with a Golden Boot to his name, as his six goals in the competition helped England have their best performance in world football's biggest tournament since 1990, as the Three Lions got eliminated by Croatia in 2018.

To make things even better, England have managed to consistently improve, finishing top in their UEFA Nations League group that featured Spain and their World Cup semi-final opponents, Croatia, and as a result, qualifying for the finals that will be played this coming summer.

Kane has stated that by winning the trophy, the country as a whole would have a summer that would be much more fruitful than the last, saying that "If we go and have a good summer and win that trophy, in my eyes it's a better year." He went on to say that having the chance to win a trophy in an England shirt "is not something that happens very often", especially as an England captain.

However, Kane is not the only member of the England team to prize the UEFA Nations League trophy very highly, with Raheem Sterling also saying that his ultimate goal is "lifting a trophy with England", yet he does not want to get too confident, especially before the tournament has even started.

Southgate's growing influence around the England camp has been beneficial for everyone, with the Manchester City winger saying that Southgate has transformed the squad with "A happy camp, tactics, having a real togetherness... he's been a joy to work with." To make matters even better for the English faithful, there have been several youngsters appearing in the squads, with Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and James Ward-Prowse all featuring in the latest England squad.

England begin their road to Euro 2020 with their first qualifiers against Czech Republic at home on Friday, 22nd of March, and away at Montenegro on Monday, 25th of March, as they look to build on what they started.
