England striker Harry Kane believes that the team must capitalize on the fans’ support on Wembley when they go up against Scotland in the World Cup qualifiers.
The Three Lions sits at the top of Group F after two wins and a draw in the opening three games. Scotland sits in fourth, three points behind England, after a win, a draw and a loss in their opening three matches. With Wembley set to get sold out for the fixture on Friday, Kane thinks that England must use the atmosphere to their advantage.
“We have to use the atmosphere to our advantage,” Kane said. “We have to use the positive energy to win the game.
“It’s not like another game where if you lose you don’t hear about it too much. With this one, we know Scottish players and Scottish friends will make it heard if they beat us and we obviously don’t want that, so we’ll do all we can to win the game.”
Kane made his first appearance for Spurs since coming back injury over the weekend as Tottenham got a 1-1 draw against rivals Arsenal, with Kane scoring the tying goal from the penalty spot.
“It’s from one rivalry to another,” Kane said. “We all know how big the game is on Friday. We’re looking forward to it very much. It’s going to be an amazing atmosphere, with great competition on the pitch so all we can do is take preparations like Sunday into international games and that’s what I’ll be doing.
“I seem to do well in games against rivals so if I’m picked I’ll go in with passion and pride and try to win the game for our country.”
