Jose Mourinho believes Harry Kane’s lack of trophies at Tottenham will sack the striker to lead England to Euro 2020 victory: ‘He’s going to try everything he can’
Former Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho believes Harry Kane’s lack of trophies at club level will spur him into Euro 2020.
Despite the fact that Kane has won numerous individual awards, he has yet to lift a trophy during his career.
As a result, Mourinho thinks the striker will be especially determined to go all out for England this summer.

Mourinho told The sun: ‘Harry (Kane) is the one who has a lot on his shoulders.
‘The country expects a lot from him. He expects a lot from himself.
“He’s the captain and he wants to win something. He doesn’t do that at the club, so of course he’s going to do everything he can to do it at the Three Lions.”
Mourinho believes there are some key signs that this could be England’s year.

Despite his individual achievements, Kane still hasn’t won a trophy in his career
Manager Gareth Southgate can call on excellent young prospects such as Phil Foden and Mason Mount, while the fact that England co-host the tournament could also be hugely beneficial.
Mourinho believes this is the ideal time for England to win their first trophy since 1966.

He said: ‘This is a generation full of good players, even the young players. The squad is great. England has to go with everything.
The group stage is at home. The semi-finals and final are at home. It has to be now, because it was in 1966. I think they should continue with everything.’
Kane holds an impressive record for England, having netted 34 times in 54 appearances.
After winning the golden boot at the 2018 World Cup, Kane will try to do the same this time around, although he will focus more on England’s success.
