#EURO2020: Kane welcomes great expectations on England

Harry Kane has welcomed the new-found expectations on England

Kane continued by admitting that England are targeting UEFA Nations League glory, having progressed from one of the more hard groups on paper.

Four English sides have reached the last eight of Europe's premier club competition for the first time in a decade with Tottenham striker Kane set to face a host of worldwide teammates who play for Manchester City three times in two legs of a Champions League quarter-final and a vital Premier League match next month.

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

He further said: "It's not very often you have the chance to win a trophy in an England shirt".

"If we go and have a good summer and win that trophy, in my eyes it's a better year".

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 we handled it really well since the World Cup".

Man Utd legend Ferdinand: I'd rather Man City win than Liverpool
Pallister though says he has been impressed with Liverpool for keeping up with Pep Guardiola's side throughout the campaign. Rio Ferdinand has taken a dig at Liverpool fans after speaking about the Reds' Premier League title challenge this season.

"Of course 2018 was fantastic, but for me the main thing is the team and we want to win things".

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. All we can do is play the way we have been playing, play with that freedom and I think the players we have allow us to do that.

"But we know the chance to play a Euros where most of the games are at home is an awesome opportunity and you don't often get that in your career so we will try and make the most of it".

"I feel in that zone, where if I get a chance, I'm going to put it away".

Chelsea have from now until the end of the season to try convince Hudson-Odoi he can have a future with his boyhood club and that means Maurizio Sarri handing him regular starts.

"Since I came back from injury, I feel like I'm sharp with a lot of energy, and that's when I feel I'm at my best". "I feel like nowadays, with sports science and everything, the prime might be a bit later if you keep yourself in good enough shape", he added.
