Harry Kane ‘wants to be remembered’ for leading England to Euro 2024 glory

England captain Harry Kane ‘wants to be remembered’ by ending their 58-year wait for a major trophy at Euro 2024.

England will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday night. The Three Lions will also play Denmark and Slovenia in Group C.

After losing against Italy on penalties in the Euro 2020 final, Kane believes England has a “great opportunity” to win a major trophy in Germany.

We all want to be remembered to have won a major tournament with England – not just to have had good campaigns,” said Kane in an interview with the BBC.

“So we know it is something to respect and be proud of, and to keep pushing ourselves. If we don’t win, we’re going to be disappointed.

As much as you can be unlucky and go out on penalties, we really want to win and start winning as a national team because we have been taking steps towards this moment. It is going to be tough, we know that, but we’re ready for the challenge.”

‘It would mean a lot [to win the Euros’

Kane scored 44 goals in his first season at Bayer Munich last season but failed to win any trophy with the German giants. Ahead of Sunday’s game, the 30-year-old striker said winning a major tournament with England will be “the pinnacle of his career”.

It would mean a lot [to win the Euros],” Kane said at a news conference Saturday. “I love playing for my country, I love love playing for England. It means the world to me every time I step out on the pitch wearing a shirt.

“I think winning a major tournament with England would be one of the pinnacles of anyone’s career so that is the aim.

“For me personally, the trophies haven’t quite happened yet but it just makes me more determined and more hungry to go out there and do that.

That starts this summer. We have a good opportunity, a lot of hard work in front of us but that opportunity is there and I’m looking forward to trying to make it happen.”
