Harry Kane has had a fantastic start to the World Cup. Five goals in two games is some going.

I wouldn't put it past him to go on and win the Golden Boot.

He has been unbelievable for the past few seasons with Tottenham and has carried that form on to the World Cup as England captain.

There may have been a few questions when he had that injury for Spurs last season about whether he would be back to his best for Russia. He has answered them, that's for sure.

And the way he is looking, if chances continue to come his way, I'd fancy him to take them.

I've spoken to players who have worked with Harry and they will tell you he has a brilliant work ethic, is a good guy and has that great desire to succeed.

With England already through to the knockout stages, manager Gareth Southgate will make some changes to his team for tonight's final group match against Belgium but I'm sure Harry will want to play given how good he is feeling right now.

I'm also certain that Gareth and his players will want to keep the momentum going because they have had such a positive start to this World Cup.

It was fantastic for their confidence how clinical they were in front of goal against Panama in the 6-1 victory and I know they will want to continue in that vein versus Belgium. It's a chance for England to put another marker down in this tournament.
