Overall, Germany have won only two of their past nine games, losing four of their past six fixtures after previously going more than a year and a half without a defeat.

What do you think of Kane's new boots?

"We've got to convince ourselves it wasn't a one-off", Southgate said.

While the countdown for the 2020 European Championships begins now for Gareth Southgate and his young squad, Kane sees this latest competition as the ideal opportunity for England to build on this summer's achievements.

"They were not at the World Cup but they have great players and it will be a hard game".

The Nations League, brainchild of European soccer body UEFA, aims to boost interest in the autumn and spring internationals, which were seen by clubs and fans as disruptive to the domestic football season.


In Southgate's two years in charge, the Three Lions have also failed to beat Germany, Brazil, Italy and Spain in friendly matches.

"If you look back through history, England's competitive record (of winning) against top teams is non-existent", he added.

Even though England didn't win the World Cup this summer (or finish second or third), not everyone walked away from the tournament empty-handed. "There's a lot of improvement there and I'm at a high level already".

That ambition means Kane does not look completely fondly upon his exploits in Russian Federation, where his prowess as a poacher and penalty taker meant England's relative struggles to craft chances from open play did not weigh too heavily. Can we do it every couple of years in the big tournaments and the big moments.

I remember playing against them for the U21s and I had a good game there.

"To win a Golden Boot at the World Cup is an exciting thing".
