America has been good to Harry Kane - and now we're heading out to the States again for Major League Soccer's showpiece game this summer.

We travel to Denver, Colorado for the AT&T Major League Soccer All-Star Game on Wednesday, July 29, kick-off 9pm local time (2am Thursday UK).

We follow in the footsteps of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Manchester United and AS Roma for the prestigious annual event where we'll take on the cream of the MLS at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, home of the Colorado Rapids.

Having made his first team debut back in August 2011, Harry enjoyed a successful loan spell at Millwall in 2011-12 and then impressed in our summer tour of the USA where he featured in all three matches against LA Galaxy, Liverpool and New York Red Bulls.

Two years later and having exploded onto the scene at the end of last season, Harry again put down a marker in his two appearances on our US tour, setting up Lewis Holtby's opener against Seattle and then scoring in the win against Chicago.

Now he'll spearhead the team against the MLS' finest this summer. "It will be a tough test for us in our pre-season," said Harry, 29 goals this term.

"They have some great players - Clint Dempsey, David Villa, Kaka - these are world-class players and we're looking forward to it."

A keen NFL fan, Harry has also played at the home of the Baltimore Ravens in 2012 and went one better last summer when he trained with then NFL champions Seattle Seahawks, took on Seattle Sounders at Seahawks' famous CenturyLink Field, met basketball legend and Spurs fan Steve Nash in Toronto and then threw the traditional first pitch at Wrigley Field, home of baseball giants Chicago Cubs!

"Denver Bronchos are a very good NFL team, Colorado Rapids are the host MLS team and I always enjoy my time in America," he added. "This game will be good for everyone."
