Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane hoping to inspire next generation by reaching final

10 July 2018

"Harry Maguire has emerged as England's unlikely World Cup hero following his impressive defensive displays for the Three Lions throughout the tournament and a number of top clubs are already queuing up to clinch the defender's services this summer".

Gareth Southgate's team play Croatia on Wednesday for the chance to meet France or Belgium in the final and Alli, who scored the second goal in the 2-0 last-eight win over Sweden, admitted he was not happy with his performance in that game.

Thompson went on to explain that Maguire deserves to play at a bigger club and labeled him the English Van Dijk, "No disrespect to Leicester but I can't see him being there come to the end of the transfer window".

But the Tottenham Hotspur player, who grew up in Portugal and answered questions from Brazilian media in fluent Portuguese, says that a great part of the team spirit has been the commitment and approach of all players, regardless of their place on the team sheet. It's unbelievable because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England.

"This squad doesn't have those type of players, they are all of a similar level".

"Look, we are looking forward to hopefully finishing strong".
