Tottenham star keeping feet on ground after England heroics

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has stated that although England’s win in Germany was a fantastic result, the national side must keep their collective feet on the ground.

Roy Hodgson’s side found themselves 2-0 down against the world champions in Berlin, before a fight back led to a memorable 3-2 win.

Kane scored England’s first in the clash and continues to look like a striker that can excel in the international game.

Despite the fantastic performance, the Spurs star has stated that the Three Lions team cannot get carried away by their achievement.

“We are all buzzing – credit to the lads because we never gave in and what a night! But everyone needs to stay calm – it’s a friendly,” Kane told the FA’s website.

“It’s a great night for England, 2-0 down against the world champions and coming back shows what kind of a team we are.

“But we just need to keep doing what we are doing, there’s another important game on Tuesday and we go from there.

“We played brilliantly and I thought we fully deserved the win. We had a lot of chances and on another day we probably could have scored a few more.”

Kane was joined by Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Dele Alli in the England starting line-up, with all four of the Tottenham players on the pitch for the full 90 minutes.

It has been an excellent season for Tottenham and the fact that a host of their young stars are excelling for England is a testament to their ability.

Kane looks set to lead the line for his country at Euro 2016 this summer, although just where national captain Wayne Rooney will fit into the team remains to be seen.
