Harry Kane fully justified his selection as England captain on Monday night, when the talented striker lead his country to victory over Tunisia with a match winning brace.
The Three Lions looked as if they were about to slip to a disappointing draw as the match entered it’s final minutes, before the Spurs striker headed home from close range to give Gareth Southage’s young side a crucial three points.
At just 24, Kane is the youngest England player to ever captain the Three Lions at a major tournament.
However, his fellow attacker, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, has revealed that Kane is doing an excellent job as skipper, and also admitted that the Spurs man is likely to become even more prolific as his career gos on.
“He’s been a brilliant leader for us leading up to the tournament, as well as now we have started the tournament,” Rashford said.
“He always leads by example and there’s no better way to do it than by scoring goals, like he has been doing.
“He’s a top forward. His career is only going to go up and up.
“He’s very young and, at this stage of his career, he’s going to keep improving and getting better, so who knows how good he can get?”
England face Panama in their next Group game on Sunday, and will be aware that if they beat the Central American minnows they will be all but guaranteed to progress to the knockout stages.
