As per a report from BBC, Harry Kane has been named England’s captain for the upcoming World Cup in Russia next month.

Although this is a decision a lot of us saw it coming, it is a major honour for Kane to wear the captain’s armband for his country at the age of 24. Due to the kind of maturity he often displays on the field, we tend to forget that he is quite young. But after playing a prolific role for Spurs, Kane will be itching to work his magic for his country.

England’s exploits in international tournaments have been far from ideal in recent times but things are a lot different now. In fact, Gareth Southgate has successfully assembled a promising squad and with a goalscoring machine like Kane at his disposal, things are looking good.

Going forward, Kane’s time at England will be a double-edged sword. It certainly won’t be easy to captain England and also maintain personal form and it will be interesting to see how he fares. Our fanbase on Twitter appeared to agree and here are some of the best reactions:
