    Harry Kane hopes England World Cup push can inspire a generation


    Joe Jones

    Harry Kane has claimed that England are determined to “finish the job” in Russia and hopes their unexpected tilt at World Cup glory will inspire the next generation.

    The Tottenham Hotspur striker will become the first man to captain the Three Lions in a semi-final since Terry Butcher in 1990 when he takes the armband against Croatia on Wednesday.

    "It's amazing to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament," Kane said.

    "As a player and as a professional I know that I have a job, on and off the pitch, to inspire people and inspire kids watching this tournament. It's amazing because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

    "No-one wants to go home. Everyone wants to finish the job and we are excited to try and do that. We want to be here till the end. We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional."
