Harry Kane is more than just a goal scorer, says Brazilian icon

Harry Kane has revealed his utter disappointment following England's semi-final defeat to Croatia.

'I've got the utmost respect for him - he's been banging goals in for Spurs for several seasons - but he's not alone, his team-mates play at top clubs, so it will be hard.

He added: "I have full respect for Kane". He recently signed a new contract with Tottenham keeping him at the club until 2020.

For Kane, who has scored 20 or more Premier League goals four seasons running, it was not until after the 2014 World Cup that he established himself at the top level.

The compilation of his goals, assists and skills is a showcase of what he will be bringing at the upcoming semifinals fixture against Croatia at 11:30 PM IST on Wednesday.

"Obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", Kane said after the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden.

"Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him in other games?" He had a great attitude.

"It's fantastic 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".

"It's been great to get to this stage but we wanted to go on and win it". What he's achieved has been fantastic.

"It's unbelievable 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", he said. "He's a proper good guy".

He was rested in the Three Lions' final group game against Belgium but otherwise he has only missed 27 minutes of game time.

"You can't say it publicly and both managers still probably wouldn't admit it, I don't care whether they do or not". We got further than anyone else thought we would have, so we've just got to learn from it and take what we can. "A bit of a stronger squad, we can bring subs on that would be stronger than theirs".
