World Cup 2018: Harry Kane set to start for England against Belgium as Tottenham star eyes Golden Boot

Harry Kane is expected to start for England in their final Group G fixture against Belgium.

The Three Lions have already qualified for the last 16, but Kane is determined to add to his goal tally as he bids to finish as the 2018 World Cup’s leading marksman.

The Tottenham ace currently tops the scoring charts in Russia, having scored five goals in times in two matches, and England manager Gareth Southgate is mindful of the 24-year-old’s ambition to claim the Golden Boot.

Asked if Kane would keep his place up front against Belgium, Southgate told talkSPORT: “As a manager you’ve got to think about the whole squad and then your second thought is always for individuals and their own situations – that’s a really complex balance in any business when you’re managing people, but I’m sure we will get that right.

“He is the captain and he knows he will be judged on how far we go as a team. He wants to contribute to a winning team and he knows it is not as satisfying if you are a player scoring goals and the team does not win.”


Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has suggested he could change his entire outfield team, with his side also assured of a place in the last 16.

Southgate is also set to mix up his side, although is likely to stick with the core of the XI which routed Panama 6-1.

Danny Rose, Gary Cahill and Fabian Delph could start in Kaliningrad, while Marcus Rashford is pushing to replace Raheem Sterling in attack.
