World Cup Golden Boot winner Harry Kane, has reacted to his massive achievement in Russia, and is already turning his attention to club football as he looks to rectify another unwanted record.
England captain, Harry Kane has expressed his pride on winning the Golden Boot at the just concluded 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The Tottenham striker, Kane scored a total of six goals to clinch the prize, ahead of Belgium striker, Romelu Lukaku, who had four.
Speaking on his achievement, he said; “It’s been a fantastic campaign, for me personally and the team. It’s something I’m very proud of.
“But there’s still stuff I can improve on. I can get better. I feel like there have been games in this tournament when I could have done better, but that’s all part of the learning curve.
“It’s a big achievement. Not many people get to say they’ve won a Golden Boot at a World Cup. I said coming into this tournament that I wanted to prove I could do it on these stages.
“I said the Euros (in 2016) were disappointing. If anything I wanted to prove to myself I could score at this level. I’ve scored at every other level and it was important I did that.
“I’m extremely proud and I’m sure I’ll look back in a few weeks’ time and take all these experiences in.”
Kane also addressed comments about the nature of his goals, with half of his tally at Russia 2018 coming from the penalty spot.
“You’re playing the best teams in the world at the end of the day, you’re not going to get five or 10 chances a game. You have to take what you’re given,” he said.
“I’ve had a couple that I feel I could have done better with, especially in the semi-final, but that’s part of being a striker – you’re going to miss some and you’re going to score some.
“Set-plays are a big part of the game so if I score every goal from a set-play I’m not too bothered.”
Harry Kane is yet to score a Premier League goal for Tottenham in August, despite four prolific seasons, and is looking to hit the ground running in 2018-19 Premier League season.
“I’ll hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully I can try and score in August this year,” he said.
“Not many people get to say they’ve won a Golden Boot in a World Cup, it’s a big achievement. I said before coming into the tournament I wanted to prove I could do it in these big tournaments.
“The Euros was disappointing for me and if anything I wanted to prove to myself I could score at this level. I’ve scored at every other level and it was important I did that. I’m extremely proud.
“I’m sure I’ll look back in a few weeks’ time and take all these experiences in.”
