KANE TO CAPTAIN ENGLAND

Harry Kane will captain England against Scotland, Gareth Southgate has confirmed.

The 23-year-old recently put his hand up to become England skipper in the near future, but the Tottenham Hotspur striker will wear the armband on what will be his 18th cap for the national side.

Southgate revealed Kane was “chuffed” to be selected from a number of players who could have taken on the responsibility from regular captain Wayne Rooney, who is not in the squad, and defended his side against suggestions the group lacks leaders.

“People said to me there was a lack of leaders in this team and I don’t think that’s the case,” Southagte said on Friday. “I felt it important to try and give people the opportunity to lead in different ways. Everybody’s different and has different leadership styles, has a different impact around the hotel, training ground and in meetings. Harry is one of a number of people I could have given that opportunity to. A couple of the others have done it already and I wanted to give him that boost for tomorrow. It’s a great honour for any player and their family. The significance wasn’t lost on him that’s for sure.”
