Tottenham Hotspurs striker, Harry Kane says he’s optimistic England can lift the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Recall that the Three Lions are in Group B alongside Wales, Iran and the United States of America.

However, in a chat with Sky Sports, Kane stated that England have what it takes to have a successful tournament in Qatar.

“And feel like if we won every game leading up to this tournament it would’ve been, ‘We’re guaranteed to win it’ and ‘We’re going to win it, and that can come with a different pressure,” Kane said.

“We feel like being judged on major tournaments is the main thing and the last two we’ve had have been good.

“We have a good confidence within ourselves that we can go and have a great tournament in Qatar.”

Style of play

While a teenager, Kane initially struggled in Tottenham’s academy, as partially due to his date of birth in July, he was not as physically developed as other players, nor was he as quick. However, he gained the respect of coaches with his technique and desire for self-improvement.

 

When profiling Kane in February 2013, Talksport said that he was best as a second striker, despite also having ability as a centre forward or in a wide position. They wrote that he preferred to place his shots, although he could also score from distance. The report also noted that he had good pace, but was weak in the air and had not scored on his loan at Norwich. Initially a back-up to £26 million Spanish import Roberto Soldado and frequently loaned out, Kane was eventually made Tottenham’s starting forward by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

 

 Under Pochettino, Kane said that his game has improved through the tough training techniques instituted by the manager. He also strives to achieve marginal gain in order to maximise his potential by tweaking various aspects of his training and preparations as well as nutrition.
