Tottenham star Harry Kane has revealed that England must remain calm during their 2018 World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Friday.
The striker is expected to lead the line for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions on Saturday, as England look to consolidate their position at the top of the group against Gordon Strachan’s men.
Speaking ahead of the match, Kane revealed that England must maintain their cool against their home nation rivals in what is likely to be a frenzied atmosphere as they look to secure three points.
“We need everyone on the pitch, we need cool heads,” Kane told England’s official website.
““We need to go out with a good mentality and put in a good performance. We don’t want to pick up silly bookings early on and risk getting anyone sent off.”
The 23-year-old has only just recovered from an ankle injury picked up against Sunderland back in September, but returned with a bang on Sunday after netting from the penalty spot against Arsenal during the 1-1 draw.
Interim boss Southgate will be looking for three points against Scotland before preparing his side for Tuesday night’s clash against Spain, as he looks to change his temporary role as manager into a permanent one.
He will be counting on the likes of Kane to provide the goals in front of a packed Wembley, as three points could see England go five points clear if other results go their way.
