ENGLAND captain Harry Kane will be determined to lead his nation to their first World Cup win since 1966 – and he’ll want to be a record breaker in the process.
Kane, 29, is just three goals away from breaking Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney’s English record of 53 goals.
And the Tottenham ace has been praised for his ability to score all different types of strikes in an England shirt.
But Eagle-eyed fans have spotted that no matter what the occasion, Kane consistently celebrates by kissing his hand.
Find out why below…
Why does England captain Harry Kane kiss his hand after he scores?
Harry Kane’s ring-kissing celebration is inspired by his childhood sweetheart Kate who he is married to.
The lovebirds began dating in 2005, but they have reportedly known each other long before this.
However, Kane popped the question on a trip to the Bahamas in July 2017.
Kane was first spotted doing his trademark celebration after scoring against Aston Villa in 2019 – the same year the happily weds got married.
And the English goal machine has been doing it ever since, more notably for Tottenham having scored 192 Premier League goals since making his first senior appearance in 2009.
What has Harry Kane said about his wife Kate?
Kane opened up on his relationship with Kate and admitted that he finds their story ‘a little crazy’ with how it all unfolded.
The England captain said: “When I was in school she was my friend. We always spoke, but just got closer and closer and it went from there.”
“She’s seen my whole career. Of course she’s finding it a little crazy.”
Harry Kane also mentioned that when he needs to get something off his chest, Kate is always there for him.
And the goal machine admitted that his wife is like his ‘best friend’.
