Tottenham striker Kane knows he needs to break World Cup scoring hoodoo

039;We are going to win it'- Harry Redknapp wants England to be fearless and go for World Cup glory in Russia

Underscoring the importance of the tournament, Kane said that there are many big tournaments like Champions League and Premier League, but nothing is bigger than the World Cup for him.

For all his goals that have given club and country optimism for the future, in an England shirt his recent tournament form has been poor.

England are off to the World Cup.

"It's the one competition that everybody dreams of winning".

'Everybody is looking forward to getting to the first game'.

The 1966 World Cup winners failed to get out of the group in 2014, when they were defeated by Italy and Uruguay, and lost 4-1 to Germany in the round of 16 in 2010.

"The main thing is to believe it can be different; it's been tough for the last 50 years because we haven't won anything", Kane said. "I would love to win everything with Tottenham, but for me personally the World Cup outweighs them all".

After wins over Nigeria and Costa Rica in the warm-up games, Gareth Southgate urged his players to entertain the nation this summer.

England's squad and manager Gareth Southgate fly to Russian Federation on Tuesday to settle into their training base in Repino, just outside St Petersburg.

Southgate, who experienced the pitfalls of worldwide football when he missed a penalty in the shootout loss to old foes Germany in the Euro '96 semi-finals hosted in England, did not wish to heighten expectations which has so often been a crushing burden for the national side.

Ashley Young says England's "unbelievable" team spirit, togetherness and winning mentality is better than anything he has seen before with the national team.

"It was always an England kit for me", he said, "rather than a club shirt".

England's campaign gets underway at the Volgograd Arena in, you guessed it, Volgograd. I was very passionate, my older brother Charlie was very passionate - we were big England fans.
