Harry Kane insist The Three Lions are in a better position ahead of the European Championship
England talisman Harry Kane reveals the Three Lions are in a better position than they were in 2018 as they prepare to take on Croatia in the upcoming Euros on Sunday.
England hopes were shuttered by Croatia in 2018 after they were eliminated in the semi final stage and on Sunday the Three Lions will host same opponent at the Wembley Stadium in their Euro 2020 opener.
Harry Kane who won the Golden Boots in the 2018 World Cup showdown believes England are now better suited having gained much experience since their upset in Russia three years ago.
Harry Kane on England after 2018 World Cup
“Going into that World Cup, we maybe weren’t sure where we were as a team, but we performed really well and stepped up to the occasion.
“I feel like now we’ve had a bit more experience, players in the biggest games for their club and obviously players who have played in that World Cup have had that experience as well.
“I feel like we are in a good place. We know there is still a lot of hard work that goes into it. We don’t just turn up and win the tournament.
“We haven’t won a tournament as a country for a long, long time, so there needs to be a lot of good mentality along the whole way as it is a long, tough journey to get to the latter stages of a major tournament.
“Obviously there’s a bit more pressure on us this year than there was going into that World Cup, so we just have to take it in our stride and look forward to the challenge.”
Kane is eager to guide the Three Lions to their first ever silverware since the 1960 World Cup success.
