Gareth Southgate hopeful England's play will bridge gap to the fans

One of the major concerns looming over this month's Russian Federation finals is the racism that has plagued the country's footballing divisions and national team over the years, with Three Lions defender Danny Rose even telling his family not to travel to the tournament over fear of abuse, according to Evening Standard.

"The aim is to be aggressive and fearless in possession", Kane told British media.

"The past can help us and inform us but it shouldn't shape us and we've got to be our own team".

"I want to score in tournament football, it's something I want to change", he says.

"There will be tough moments and there will be ups and downs". We've spoken at length this week about how we're really proud to represent everybody but really the guy next to you is the most important one going into this tournament.

There has been a positive around Gareth Southgate's squad in the build-up to Russian Federation 2018 - something Southgate, on the eve of England's departure to the World Cup, is keen to capitalise on in the coming weeks.

"We just didn't know what to do to get back in the game when we were behind because we just hadn't planned for it".

"It is hard to look beyond the World Cup", said Kane.

"I don't think the players would want that because they have worked all their lives to play at a World Cup. And if you win one, you win more".

England manager, Gareth Southgate, named Kane as the team captain at the 2018 World Cup, and the player hopes to be the second English man to lift the World Cup after Bobby Moore who captained England in the 1966 World Cup. They will play their opening game against Tunisia on June 18.
