West Ham United must regret not forcing through a deal for Harry Maguire while they had a chance, with the centre-back shining for England at the World Cup.

Kane who failed to extend his scoring streak at the tournament on Saturday, still did a captain's job by unselfishly giving everything for the cause as England reached the World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90.

It's all a far cry from two years ago when Kane was in the England side humiliated by Iceland at the Euros. It's so much inspiration.

"It's incredible to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he explained. Somebody asked me to take a look at him and I thought he was a decent player, they thought he was a big player but was he going to be mobile enough?

"But look, we said we wanted to write our own history". He is a joy to watch.

"It's been incredible to be a part of this World Cup so far".

Comedian Adam Hess shared what he was doing at 24 years old. "We are one step closer to what is the biggest game in football as a professional".

England captain Harry Kane is now leading the race for the Golden Boot at the World Cup with six goals but, according to Redknapp, it's his experiences of playing against Croatia defender Dejan Lovren which could prove crucial in Saint Petersburg on Wednesday.

Nearly 20 million people in Britain tuned in for the victory over Sweden, not accounting for the many more who watched in pubs and public viewing areas.

"We've got a tough game against Croatia but we feel confident".

Following the forward's reply, Ben's father, Sam Williams, told ITV News: "When we saw the message from Harry Kane - that's what this has been all about, to get Ben's favourite player to give him a shout out".

"No one wants to go home".

"We're going to try our hardest", he assured. Know what I mean love?'

"It is fantastic to be part of this World Cup so far and I get the feeling from the boys that we don't want to go home".
