Harry Kane Eyes Silverware for Club and Country Ahead of Busy Season

Harry Kane has spoken of his 'ultimate goal' of winning trophies for both Tottenham Hotspur and England on the eve of the new Premier League season.

The 27-year-old is widely regarded as one of world football's top strikers, but has yet to add silverware to his variety of personal accolades.

With Tottenham competing on four fronts this season, and the European Championships next summer, Kane is focused upon achieving success.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Kane admitted, "For me to take that next step as a player and try to progress as a player is to win those trophies. Obviously it's great scoring goals and winning Golden Boots but, as I've said before, there would be no better feeling than lifting a trophy with my teammates.

“That's the ultimate goal. That's what I'll try to do and hopefully this year can be a big year for club and country.

Approaching the peak of his career, the 2018 World Cup top scorer is determined to lift trophies as captain of both club and country - aware that his legacy will be judged by such measures.

“I guess I’m coming to a period of my career now where it’s time for me to push on. Hopefully for the next six, seven eight years, I can keep myself fit and healthy, push on and do great things," he continued.

“I feel like I’ve got a lot more left in the tank, I feel like I can have a lot more improvement to do and get a lot better than what I have been. So far it’s been good, but the type of person I am I believe I can always get better.

“I’m looking forward to this season especially, the years to come, to try and score more goals, hopefully get some team trophies under the belt and really go from there.”

Kane was speaking after England's mixed performances in their Nations League matches in Iceland and Denmark this week, which yielded a victory - just - and a draw.

While the Three Lions are still rated as frontrunners for next summer's Euros, two laboured performances have seen manager Gareth Southgate forced to defend his team selection - after he opted to start two defensive midfielders in Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice, as well as operating with a back three, in Copenhagen.
