Jude Bellingham

All 12 of England’s goals came from eight different players with Kane and fellow veteran Jordan Henderson finding the net against Senegal to join young stars like Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden, Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka on the scoreboard.

“I feel like we have a great mix of experience and youth and when you look at teams that have won big tournaments, that’s what they’ve had,” Kane told Lions’ Den.

“Seeing the guys play the way they’re playing, I’m almost like a proud big brother or something. I don’t want to say dad, that’s too much, but I’m 29 and one of the oldest on the team.

“France is going to be a difficult game for sure. They themselves have had a very good tournament so far, they have some great players.

World Cup

“To win a World Cup you are going to have to play really good teams and France is definitely that, but we have faith. We’ll recover for the next few days and then we have Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to prepare for what’s ahead.

“Like all the tournaments we have played, it is in the next one. Back at Euro beating Germany and teams like that, you just have to go into the (next) game full of confidence.

World Cup

“We’re not getting carried away, but it’s a chance to play in a World Cup semi-final. We’ve been there before and hopefully we can try to make that happen again.”

Wayne Rooney

Kane’s goal against Senegal was his 52nd goal for his country and means he is just one shy of equaling Wayne Rooney’s all-time England record.

“I’m excited to get to do it,” Kane added. “If it can be in this tournament, great, because it means the team is probably doing well too. We’ll have to wait and see, but it was nice to be one step closer.

“I was lucky enough to be playing when Wayne broke the record and I saw how much it meant to him.”
