And the World Cup Golden Boot victor thinks he is "in the zone" in front of goal ahead of a massive three months for club and country with Spurs set to face Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals and in a battle for a top-four Premier League finish.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is adamant England can win the 2020 Euros.

England topped a Nations League qualifying group that included 2010 world champions Spain and 2018 runners-up Croatia.

"To have a chance to win a trophy in an England shirt is not something that happens very often. There will be one or two further cases in the future before we get to a solution". "If we win that trophy, in my eyes, it's a better year than 2018".

"Expectation will change and things like that, but that is good for us, as long as we know what we want to do and achieve as a group that will be really important", he said.

England meet the Netherlands in the Nations League semi-finals on June 6 for the right to face either European champions Portugal or Switzerland in the final three days later in Porto.

"I think that was big for us, to prove to everyone that it wasn't just a one-off".

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Declan Rice are the latest uncapped youngsters to come into Southgate's squad, with Borussia Dortmund teenager Jadon Sancho having made the breakthrough before the turn of the year.

"We know the chance to play a Euros where most of the games are at home is an fantastic opportunity", said Tottenham star Kane.

"I never want to be injured, but I had that break while I was injured and I've used that to make sure I'm fresh now", he added.

"Young players who are maybe only starting now who are going to be more experienced and even better in a few years".

"He tells me "you're learning a new language, new environment, just keep up with your performances".

"It's up to me to try and help them when they come here and perform and feel comfortable around the lads and the squad to go out in a game and do what they do for their clubs".
