U20 World Cup 'A Fantastic Opportunity' - Harry

Posted on 20 June 2013  - 12:20

Harry Kane is counting down to the start of the FIFA Under-20s World Cup.


The striker is in the England squad with team-mate Alex Pritchard for the tournament that kicks-off in Turkey on Friday.

The Young Lions begin their campaign against Iraq on Sunday and then face Chile (Wednesday, June 26) and Egypt (Saturday, June 29) in Group E.

"It will be a great experience to play in a World Cup and something I'm really looking forward to," said Harry, who made his Premier League debut for us last season before loan spells at Norwich City and Leicester City.

"It's a fantastic opportunity up against the best teams and players in the world at this age group. That can only make you a better player and I'm sure it will only benefit me at this stage of my career.

"It's great that Pritch is here as well, and Chris Ramsey (our Professional Phase Coach, Peter Taylor's assisant in Turkey), who is a top coach. I'm sure we'll all learn plenty."
