England boss Gareth Southgate confirmed captain Harry Kane will start the Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo.

Kane bagged a hat-trick in Saturday’s game against Bulgaria to move to 25 goals for his country, one ahead of World Cup winner Geoff Hurst.

The Tottenham striker is looking lean this season, having overcome injuries which dogged the build-up to Spurs’ Champions League final and the Three Lions’ Nations League finals.

“It is safe to say we won’t be dropping him for tomorrow. His level of performance is so high that dropping him would be a rare occurrence.”


The Three Lions obliterated Bulgaria at Wembley, but Southgate is expecting a different type of game against the surprise package of Group A.








“It will be a very different style of game. Kosovo will be very high pressing, hard working, a more attacking threat than we faced on Saturday.”
