England captain Harry Kane speaks after win over Germany and his first goal at EURO 2020

England captain Harry Kane reflected on an unforgettable evening at Wembley Stadium after helping to fire his side into the last eight of UEFA EURO 2020.

After Raheem Sterling’s third goal of the tournament had put the Three Lions ahead against Germany with a quarter-hour remaining, the skipper wrapped things up four minutes from time.

"It's an amazing day, an amazing game,” said Kane, whose goal came after requiring treatment for a knee injury midway through the second period. 

“To hear Wembley like that was a moment none of us will forget. It was the perfect afternoon for us.

"The goal was massive for me. I knew the blow to the knee was just contact [but] it took me a couple of minutes to get back. I had to be ready for the next chance, for the next one. 

“Jack's put in a great cross and I was able to put it in. It was an amazing feeling and it was nice to get my first in the tournament. hopefully I can score a couple more between now and the end."


The Three Lions now head to Rome for the quarter-finals on Saturday evening, with Kane particularly buoyed by the side’s record as the only team left in the competition yet to concede a goal. 

"When you look at our attack, any team will see us as dangerous,” he affirmed. “We want to score goals, but we're keeping clean sheets and that's the main thing. 

“We're building on that and this will give us even more self-belief going into Saturday. We want to go all the way and we've got a tough game coming up.

"It's a big moment for the group but we don't want to stop here. We've got a vision of where we want to go as a group and we're not done yet. 

“We loved every second of it and hopefully we'll be back here in the semi and the final."
