Harry Kane: Captaining England was special and emotional moment

Harry Kane has said captaining England was the biggest moment of his career so far, adding that he wants to keep the armband permanently.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane marked his first match as captain with a stoppage time equaliser in the 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw in Scotland on Saturday.

England manager Gareth Southgate has so far rotated the captaincy but said he will eventually appoint a permanent captain, with Kane, vice-captain at Spurs, among the contenders.

"It was probably the most special moment of my career," Kane told reporters. "I did not want to lose my first game as captain, that is for sure -- especially against Scotland. So to score that goal was a special feeling for me.

"The manager told me [that he would be captain] just before training on Friday and it was quite emotional. There were a lot of proud feelings.

"It was something I have always dreamed about, as most kids do. So, to be given that opportunity by the gaffer and how the game panned out, to manage to score in the last minute was a very proud moment."

Asked about his chances of keeping the armband, Kane replied: "I have said before I would love to be England captain.

"Obviously I don't know what the gaffer's feeling is on it. We have got leaders in the team and it is just the case that I am wearing the armband. I still play the same way. I still talk, I still shout in the same way.

"That is what is good about this team. People don't look at one player now to drag them through because we have plenty of leaders.

"A good captain leads by example, on and off the pitch.

"I have a steady mind and I know my ambitions, I know what I want to do, and this team has great ambition. I am one of many who could be captain."

Meanwhile, Southgate said his team lacked creative midfield players but expressed his belief that talent was coming through the ranks.

He told reporters: "We've obviously gone into this game without Jack [Wilshere], [Darius] Henderson, [Danny] Drinkwater, [Fabian] Delph if you are looking at English players playing.

"There's no-one else. You are talking about [Michal] Carrick and [Gareth] Barry so that is the concern in terms of numbers of players and that is part of the challenge. In terms of the task that we have got, that bit can't be underestimated.

"But we have to hope there are some young players in the under-21s and U20s that can add to that. We have got talent coming through -- they need opportunities."
