According to Sky Sports England Captain Harry Kane says his team will be “aggressive and brave” during this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
Kane acknowledged that England have been “passive” and have focused too much on avoiding defeat in previous tournaments, an approach has seen them fail to reach the quarter-finals of a major tournament since 2006.
The article adds that Kane says the current squad will bring a fresh approach to this summer’s World Cup. He said: “The aim is to be aggressive and brave in possession. We want to take this tournament head on.There will be tough moments, and ups and downs. Sometimes going into a big tournament is about not losing and being passive but, for us, it’s about playing attacking football”
He added: “We are aiming to win the first game, then to target the second, and take that attitude to the World Cup.”
Kane has scored 13 goals for England but failed to find the net in any of his four appearances at Euro 2016.
“Personally, that (scoring) record is something I want to change, and hopefully will this summer,”:said Kane.
England begin their Group G campaign against Tunisia on Monday, before matches against Panama and Belgium.
