Sven-Goran Eriksson has backs Harry Kane to lift the World Cup this year

Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has backed Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to win the World Cup this year.

Speaking to Boyle Sports (h/t The Sun), the former manager also said that Kane is the only player the manager would take in the golden generation England team.

“If there was one player I’d love to have playing for me from this current England team, it’s very easy, Harry Kane. He has everything and he could be the one who wins the World Cup for England and maybe he’ll be the top goalscorer at this World Cup. Every team needs a player like that.”

Eriksson managed the Three Lions for five years between 2001 and 2006. Many consider the players at his disposal to be the most talented set of players the country had ever produced until that point.

But they failed to win any silverware, having never progressed beyond the quarter-final stage in all three tournaments under the former manager.

Now, the former manager has backed the Tottenham striker to win the most prestigious trophy. The 29-year-old was on the scoresheet last night against Germany when the Three Lions came back from 2-0 to earn a point in a 3-3 draw.

Kane has scored 51 goals for his country, only two behind the record Wayne Rooney’s record to become the all-time top scorer for the Three Lions. Gareth Southgate has a fantastic pool of talents at his disposal for the World Cup.

Can Southgate and Kane win the World Cup for England?

There is no reason why the Three Lions should not be considered favourites. Kane is guaranteed to travel for the tournament in November and could play a crucial part in his country’s success.

England lost 2-1 after extra-time to Croatia in the semi-finals at the last World Cup. The Three Lions last won the prestigious cup in 1966 at Wembley after they defeated West Germany 4-2. Maybe this November it finally comes home.
