England manager Gareth Southgate has heaped praised on Harry Kane for his leadership qualities during the World Cup. The 24-year-old was appointed as the Three Lions’ permanent captain ahead of the tournament in Russia and Southgate is pleased that the striker managed to lead by example with his performances.
He said: “I think he's done a fantastic job. He's not really captained his club as such so to show the leadership that he did throughout the tournament for us, I was really pleased and really impressed.He has the respect of the entire group. I think his mindset of what's possible and what's achievable, as he's shown with his own game, filters through to the other players. We always have to have that mentality of wanting to work all the time to get better and he has that mindset in abundance.”
