Harry Kane's brilliant message to young cancer patient

Harry Kane's brilliant message to young cancer patient

Kane became just the third England player to hit a World Cup hat-trick in the 6-1 rout of Panama, joining Lineker and Geoff Hurst, the star of the 1966 final victory over West Germany.

Harry Kane's World Cup actions are bringing up comparisons to England icons like Sir Geoff Hurst and Gary Lineker.

"It's wonderful to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration", Kane said in the post match press conference after his sides 2-0 semi-final win over Sweden.

Maguire has been absolutely brilliant for England at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation aiding his side to the semi-finals of the grand tournament. Vardy is in talks over a new deal which will net him up to £150,000-a-week and Maguire will get the same, following a stunning World Cup campaign.

Leicester City have told Harry Maguire that they will make him the highest paid player at the club alongside Jamie Vardy this summer.

But he said France were talented and experienced enough to break down Belgium's defensive "wall" around keeper Thibaut Courtois. After beating tournament favourites Brazil, Belgium find themselves just one game away from a World Cup final.

"We saw them after the game, which is great, but no one wants to go home".

The Foxes' defender headed England into a 1-0 lead in the first half of their World Cup quarter-final clash with Sweden, with his first goal for his country.

The following day on Wednesday it will be Croatia who is taking on England, and that match is going to be just as exciting as the one above. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud. England: the people's team again, which, when you think about it, is not too much to ask.

England lost on penalties to West Germany in their most recent World Cup semi-final 28 years ago. "Everyone wants to finish the job and we're excited to try and do that".
