England will adopt an aggressive approach to their World Cup fixtures and tackle the tournament "head on" as Gareth Southgate's youthful squad hopes to make its mark in Russian Federation, captain Harry Kane has said.

Tottenham Hotspur kicks off the season this year with the International Champions Cup, which will see the team spend 10 days in the U.S., playing against Roma in San Diego, Barcelona in Los Angeles and AC Milan in Minneapolis.

He added: "In an idealistic world people would say to walk off the pitch but that means we would be thrown out of the tournament, which. many people would agree with".

Kane, who will captain his country at the tournament, acknowledged that England have been "passive" and have focused too much on avoiding defeat in previous tournaments.

It comes after the Three Lions spoke to injured servicemen from the Royal Marines in a bid to put the pressure of the World Cup into perspective.

"There will be tough moments and there will be ups and downs".
