And despite becoming England’s first recipient of the award since Gary Lineker in 1986, he still feels he could have done better.“It’s been a fantastic campaign, for me personally and the team. It’s something I’m very proud of.“But there’s still stuff I can improve on. I can get better. I feel like there have been games in this tournament when I could have done better, but that’s all part of the learning curve.“It’s a big achievement. Not many people get to say they’ve won a Golden Boot at a World Cup. I said coming into this tournament that I wanted to prove I could do it on these stages.” Tottenham issue immediate ban to supporter who threw cup at Kepa Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes Harry Kane with the Premier League Golden Boot smart causal REVEALED 2 “I will hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully try and score in August [for the first time in the Premier League] this year,” said Kane, smiling as he acknowledged the fact he has never been able to find the net during the month.After Newcastle, Tottenham play Fulham and then Manchester United.“I want to be playing in four weeks’ time,” he said. “We’ll see. We’ll have to talk to the gaffer [Mauricio Pochettino] at Spurs. It will be a couple of weeks [off]. The most important thing is mentally [to be ready]. Physically, this has been our pre-season. We tick over and are not going to just do nothing for two weeks. We will ease our way into it.“It’s the world we live in and, obviously, if we want to be fit for the first game we have to keep on top of it. Try and rest mentally as much as possible.“Physically your body will take you where you never thought it would. It’s always mentally. We train all year round. We are young and fit and physically your body gets on with it.“Personally, and for the lads, it’s about getting away from football. That’s what we’ve got to try and do. With the season starting soon it will be hard, but that’s something we have to deal with.”Kane played 573 minutes of football for England at the World Cup and finished with two more goals than Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Denis Cheryshev and says the award will sit next to his two Premier League Golden Boot trophies.center_img How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Kane scored six goals for England Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 2 possible standings targets LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWS gameday cracker Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? gameday Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in Januarylast_img
