Tottenham striker Kane knows he needs to break World Cup scoring hoodoo

12 June 2018

The 24-year-old, who is seeking to snap his goal-scoring duck at major tournaments, insisted that England want to tackle the World Cup "head on" and believed that a shift in their mentality would help the national side to have a successful campaign.

Kane says the current squad will bring a fresh approach to this summer's World Cup, though, saying: "The aim is to be aggressive and fearless in possession".

He added that in a big tournament like World Cup, it is more about being patient and taking on one game at a time.

"We definitely don't have that divide in the team any more". "I know what those tournament experiences can be like and we desperately want to bring that".

"There will be tough moments, and ups and downs".

The England team have left their base at St. Georges Park in Burton upon Trent to board the plane for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"If we do all of those things and we play with a smile on our face, enjoy our football, enjoy being in a tournament, then I think we will get results".

'Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game'.

"It is hard to look beyond the World Cup", said Kane.

England were also dumped out of the European Championship in 1996, 2004 and 2012 in shootouts, winning just one game on penalties against Spain back in 1996.

For instance, at a recently media day, all 23 players in the World Cup squad were available for journalists to speak to freely.

Harry Kane says England will be "aggressive and brave" during this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We know we are not the finished article, in fact we're a long way from that, but I think people see signs of progress and enjoy watching us and the manner in which we try to play".
