    Harry Kane plays down form downturn since World Cup


    England captain Harry Kane has denied that his form has suffered since the World Cup.

    However, the Tottenham Hotspur talisman admits he would like to score more often for his nation after equalling his worst run without a goal at international level.

    Kane failed to find the net as the Three Lions were held to a goalless draw by Croatia on Friday and the striker has now gone six games without a goal for his country.

    The 25-year-old took a short break away from football after the World Cup before returning to Tottenham for the start the new season.

    Nonetheless, he has denied suggestions that he is suffering from fatigue.

    "I don't think my game has dipped," he told Sky Sports. "It's been tough after the World Cup not getting much rest, but I think I dealt with it well. I've stayed fit and stayed healthy.

    "That was my main priority at the start of the season. Now it's building on that and pushing forward over the winter.

    "I set a standard for myself and I want to reach that standard every game I play. Sometimes you fall below it for one reason or another.

    "It's about learning and improving and that is what I will do for the rest of my career.

    "I just stay focused on my job and what I need to do. In the Premier League, I'm second top goalscorer. I'd like to have scored more for England recently."
