Antonio Conte thinks Tottenham star Harry Kane will have a 'fantastic' World Cup for England
Players from across the globe will fly out to Qatar after the last round of domestic games this weekend. Kane, as he is for Tottenham, will be England’s main man, and Conte thinks he’ll have a fantastic World Cup.
Antonio Conte thinks Tottenham star Harry Kane will have a ‘fantastic’ World Cup for England
Tottenham faced Nottingham Forest in the City Ground earlier this week. Spurs were awful and deservedly lost that game, but the most concerning thing that night was Conte subbing Kane off just before the hour mark.
The Italian revealed after the game that Kane was ‘really, really tired’. That raised a few concerns from England fans ahead of the World Cup, but Conte has some good news.
He revealed in his press conference yesterday that the Three Lions skipper knows how to take care of his body and he’ll be perfectly fine to perform at the highest level for England in the World Cup in the coming weeks.
Conte said, as per Football London: “I think Harry is going to play a fantastic World Cup because in this season, he was never injured, he has been able to train well, he is good physically and for sure to play many games in such a short period is difficult.
“When I watch Harry Kane, I see a player that wants to play every game! Every game! This is good. This is important for me because it means he feels well. He feels a lot of energy in his body.
“For sure, in this moment he wants to finish well with us, with Tottenham. Tottenham is now at the top of his thoughts. Until Saturday. Then for sure, for sure, he is the captain of England, the most representative player.
“We are talking about a really top striker in the world. This is a big competition, the biggest competition in the world, and for sure, he has great desire to do something special for his national team.”
Kane is an absolutely incredible striker, there’s no debate on that front.
The Englishman has been sensational for Tottenham this season. Erling Haaland’s outrageous record has made some people forget how good Kane is, but the Spurs star’s tally of 12 goals and three assists in 21 games is still very, very good.
England’s hopes of going far in the World Cup depend on Kane. He is undoubtedly their most important player, and if he fires all cylinders, the Three Lions could achieve something really special.
Tottenham take on Leeds in the Premier League tonight, and Conte’s comments suggest Kane will start once again. England fans will be hoping he can get through that game without any trouble.
