I dreamed of this as a kid, and it's all been a bit of a blur. To captain my country is such a big honour for me.
England’s striking talisman and captain has barely looked back since the moment he scored his first senior goal, just seconds into his debut as a Wembley substitute against Lithuania in March 2015.
Kane was named as Gareth Southgate's skipper ahead of the 2018 World Cup, having proved to be a vital part of the team both on and off the pitch since the manager first took charge in October 2016.
And he more than repaid the faith in Russia by helping to lead the Three Lions to the semi-finals and also bagging the Golden Boot award as top scorer with six goals at the competition.
The pair had previously worked together when Southgate was MU21s head coach and Kane was a fledgling striker, still working hard for a chance to impress with Spurs, having come through the north London club's academy ranks.
The Chingford native had always shown an eye for goal in the formative years of his career, whether that was during his appearances with various Young Lions’ teams or when out on loan with the likes of Leyton Orient and Millwall.
He first came into the international reckoning with the MU17s in the 2009-10 season, when he helped John Peacock's Young Lions qualify for the U17 EURO Finals after a debut in the Elite Round games on home soil.
However, injury ruled him out of the Finals in Liechtenstein which saw England go on to lift the title thanks to a win over France in the decider.
From there, he moved into the MU19s reckoning under the stewardship of Noel Blake and was instrumental as that group went on to reach the U19 EURO semi-final in Estonia in 2012, thus qualifying for the FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey the following summer which was another tournament experience to add to his growing list.
A strong all-rounder with an outstanding work ethic, the east-Londoner is clinical with either foot and scores his share of headers, as well as an ability to hold the ball up and bring others into play.
"Kane just doesn’t care, he shoots from everywhere, he’s like Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m not comparing him with Ronaldo, that’s not fair, but Kane has that bravura, an almost arrogance that the best will have."Gary Lineker
