And Kane insists his teammates always believed they could do something special in Russia.
“It’s been amazing,”:Kane admitted after the game in Samara.”I said before the tournament, we have to believe.You go into any competition trying to go all the way – otherwise there is no point entering it.
Kane added: “Obviously not many people thought we would get to this stage but, look, we deserved it.”
And ahead of a semi final clash with Croatia, Kane was more than happy to simply revel in victory on Saturday.
He added: “We’ve been fantastic and under such pressure (obviously the whole nation watching, the whole world watching on) I thought we controlled the game really well.We was [sic] composed and we took our chances when we needed to and a clean sheet is vital at this stage.”
