Harry Kane’s wife, Kate has penned a heart-warming tribute to the forward ahead of England’s Euro 2020 final clash against Italy tomorrow evening.
The Three Lions have reached their first major tournament since they lifted the World Cup in 1966.
The pair have been childhood sweethearts since meeting at school and have gone on to tie the knot and have three children.
Kate wrote a good-luck message to Harry for a column in The Telegraph which saw friends and family of the England squad send their good luck messages ahead of the Wembley showpiece.
The 28-year-old paid tribute to her husband’s determination to reach the top of the game while also praising his role within their family.
Kane has scored four goals during the tournament and is currently one behind the Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick, giving the forward the added incentive of adding the top scorer award to his World Cup golden boot.
Kate wrote: “H, you know I’m not one to cry too easily but I found myself in tears when I started writing down how proud you’re making us all and what you’re doing for the country.
“I used to laugh at you when we started going out and you’d be round mine playing penalties with my brother Tom and Seamus the dog, and you’d say you would be England captain one day. But that’s you – you set yourself a goal and you achieve it and you always said you were going to the Euros to get to the final.
“You’re just such an amazing husband and dad, and the children can’t wait to have you home. Imagine telling them all about this summer one day when they’re a bit older. We all love you so much, Skipper. Bring it home for the country, you deserve to lift that trophy with this incredible England team!”
Kate’s tribute to Harry will tug on the heart strings of even the nation, who will be behind the striker and the rest of the England squad when they take to the field against Italy.
Will winning Euro 2020 help to appease Kane’s desire of winning trophies, at least at club level? Or will it instead give him the hunger to win more and push harder for an exit.
