And he is also on a mission to add to his personal collection of gongs by once again bagging the Golden Boot.

The Spurs striker was top scorer in the Premier League with 23 goals and also won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia with six strikes.

Kane, 27, is busy preparing for Sunday’s opener against Croatia at Wembley.

He said: “As a striker, if you are scoring, you are helping the team. That’s always my aim — and to win.

“Of course, I’d love to win another Golden Boot. More importantly, I’d love to be lifting that Euros trophy.

“Whatever way we get there, whether it’s me scoring or others, it doesn’t bother me as long as we are winning games.

“That’s why we play football on the highest stage, to be involved in the biggest games. Once most guys are on the pitch, instinct takes over.”

But Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate said: “The individual awards are very special and have been richly deserved.

“But Harry is at that moment with us when you forget about the number of caps and goals and you are thinking about the team having success.

“If the team progresses, there is more chance he will hit those numbers as he will have more games.”

Southgate has been hit by a string of injuries and selection headaches.

Yet Kane claims England have a stronger squad than three years ago.

Speaking to the Official England Podcast, he added: “We’re probably in a better place.

“I feel now we’ve had more experience, players playing in the biggest games for their club and players who have played in that World Cup.

“We know there is still a lot of hard work that goes into it.

“We don’t just turn up and win the tournament.

“We haven’t won as a country for a long, long time, so there needs to be a good mentality.

“The tournament environment is difficult. You are away from your family and friends for a long time, so we’re there to create a real brotherhood among ourselves.

“There’s going to be moments when players are down and it’s just about picking each other up, talking to each other and keeping each other focused.”

Kane is relishing the prospect of facing Croatia, who beat England 2-1 in the World Cup semi- final.

The skipper added: “It’s a game that hurts. We wanted to win and get to a World Cup final, but in football, it doesn’t always pan out how you want.

“We just fell short in that moment.

“It’s the first game of a major tournament and the most important thing is to beat them and get off to a good start.”
