Harry Kane wants the armband permanently

Harry Kane says he wants to be the next captain of England, permanently.


He was handed the armband when England faced Scotland and France earlier this year. Gareth Southgate has not appointed a permanent captain yet but is expected to pick the successor to Wayne Rooney before the World Cup obviously and Kane believes he is the right man for the job.


"Yes, I've had the armband and it was a very proud moment," the Spurs vice-captain said, when asked if he is targeting the permanent captaincy.

"I feel like one of the leaders in the team. But Gareth Southgate has said he is going to take his time and we do have plenty of leaders."


After a slow start in August, Kane scored 13 goals for club and county in September and he is hoping to continue that form in England's World Cup qualifiers this week.


"My focus has to be on scoring goals and continuing this form into October. That's the most important thing -- do your talking on the pitch," Kane said ahead of Thursday's match against Slovenia at Wembley, where a win could seal England's place in Russia.
"Whoever Gareth picks as captain, the team will get behind him. We have still not qualified and we have to win the game on Thursday, and that makes it easier on Sunday."



To be chosen as England captain is a huge honor, if his form is any indicator over the last 3 seasons, Kane is ready for the job.
