England striker Harry Kane is confident he will not be weighed down by the added responsibility of being named captain for Thursday’s World Cup qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley.
Kane, who scored 13 goals for club and country last month, said England had plenty of leaders in the side irrespective of who wore the armband.
“For me personally nothing really changes,” the 24-year-old told a news conference on Wednesday, after manager Gareth Southgate named him skipper for the Slovenia game.
“I will go out there and try and do my job for the team, try and score goals and try and win the match. I don’t think having an armband on your arm makes any difference to how you play or if you score goals or not.”
