‘I see it in his eyes’ Antonio Conte makes Tottenham striker Harry Kane Qatar 2022 World Cup claim

‘I see it in his eyes’ Antonio Conte makes Tottenham striker Harry Kane Qatar 2022 World Cup claim

Antonio Conte insists that Harry Kane is fit and ready to lead England to victory.

The England captain scored his 14th goal of the season as Tottenham rallied from three deficits to defeat Leeds in 90 minutes. 

Even in stoppage time, he put his body on the line to cover the ball as Spurs hung on.

Conte remarked, “Harry is now looking forward to play in the World Cup with great enthusiasm, in good physical condition, stronger mentally than before.

“I see a player that is ready. I see in his eyes the desire to be a protagonist in the best competition in the world.”

Since taking over as manager a year ago, Kane has beyond Conte’s expectations, according to Conte.

“Before I knew Harry from watching him because we played sometimes against him. Then to be his coach and to see the way he has decided that he has to improve himself is really important.

“I try with every single player to push them to become better whether it is a young player like Harvey White or Harry.

“Now he is arriving at this World Cup in the best physical and mental condition. He feels a lot of responsibility because he is captain of England, and I consider them one of the best teams in the world — one of the candidates to have a great tournament — and he wants to play a fantastic tournament.

“Italy are not in the World Cup so I can become a supporter.”

Conte was especially impressed with Kane’s performance when other forwards succumbed to injuries.

“I have to be honest, in this period, especially in the last 13 games, Harry played a really important role. We finished this period in the top four, and top of our Champions League group, and we have to praise Harry a lot.

“We had many injuries and a lot of weight was on his shoulders.”

Conte aims to win the Champions League since it is a short tournament in which anything may occur. It is essential to arrive in excellent condition.

“In the past, Tottenham reached the final. To win the Premier League, it is always the best team over 38 games.

“In a short competition we will try to do our best. We will face important opponents when the game is in the balance. We try to improve on last season, do better. These are our targets.”
