LONDON- England’s captain Harry Kane said England’s bid to end their World Cup drought since 1966 will not be done by a divided squad.
The 24 year old captain said this squad does not have cliques that will be flying to Russia on Tuesday and hope to end an over century drought of lifting the trophy.
Former teammates and England players Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerard said that the so called “Golden Generation” did not live up to expectations every tournament because they could not shake off their club rivalry when playing for the national team.
Kane said this team has not had to deal with that, “It’s not something we’ve had to deal with really — we all get on very well and have come through the ranks together,”
“We definitely don’t have that divide in the team any more.”
Kane said he took issue with Ferdinand comments when he told The Times in May his priority had been winning trophies with Manchester United.
Kane added, “It’s the one competition that everybody dreams of winning. That’s No 1.
“I’d be surprised if the majority of players did not say the World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world.
“I’d love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all.”
England will be facing Tunisia in Volgograd, Russia, in their first match next Monday.
