Harry Kane wants England to build on Friday night’s win over Czech Republic with another professional performance on Monday.

The Three Lions head to Podgoirica to face Montenegro next and Gareth Southgate’s men won’t be short of confidence after their 5-0 win at Wembley.

And the skipper says the squad will take plenty of confidence from what was a stunning first win in the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.

“It was a really good performance,” admitted the Spurs striker.

“We got ahead with a well-worked goal and then got the second just before half time which helps and we were really clinical in the second half.

“We made it tough for them from the start, everyone worked hard.

“We have another tough game on Monday, away from home in a different atmosphere and it will be a new experience for some of the lads who haven’t played in some of these countries before.

“But we’re looking forward to it and hopefully we can put in a professional performance.”

Kane has been left particularly impressed with the emergence of some of the squad’s younger players in the last few months, especially in the attacking areas.

And he also reserved praise for Raheem Sterling, as his fellow forward netted a hat-trick to continue his impressive recent club form.

“He’s incredible, he’s a great player and so humble,” added Kane.

“He just wants to work hard and get better as a player. He was full of confidence out there today.

“It’s great to have him in the squad and to play with him so hopefully he can do it again on Monday.

“In a team, to be successful, you need all of your front three to be scoring and we’ve got players who can do that and players who can express themselves.

“It’s great for us and for the country, to have these players coming through and playing games.

“We want competition for places so it’s great that they’re hungry.”
