England Captain Harry Kane said the Three Lions are in a good place heading into the World Cup after a good comeback against Germany.
Gareth Southgate’s men came from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 at one point before Kai Havertz saved it for the visitors. After leading the team to a draw, Harry Kane spoke to the media, saying that the England team is currently in good hands ahead of the World Cup.
“The mentality and fight of the team were shown out there today,” said Kane, who moved to within two goals of matching Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England.
“We didn’t get the win but we can be proud of what we did and it puts us in a good place ahead of the World Cup.”
England made it to the Semi-final of the 2018 World Cup and a first major tournament final in 55 years at Euro 2020. Despite all these, the team was under pressure after being relegated from the top tier of the Nations League with a game to spare.
Notably, England struggled to score a goal from open play in their opening five games in A3. Talking about the performance, Harry Kane said that they will respond better to the heightened pressure in two months’ time.
“Major football tournament is different to any other football you play for England. The pressure is high and the concentration has to be high and I feel like we respond well to that,” he added.
He mentioned that the team did improve in the last two major tournaments and they are ready to come back in November.
“We’ve upped our game as we’ve gone along in the last two major tournaments.
“We dust ourselves down, we know we have to improve but there isn’t that much time now with England before that first game. We’ll go away with our clubs and hopefully, everyone goes away fit, strong and is ready to come back in November.”
