England are not a one-man team with Harry Kane, says Tottenham team-mate Kieran Trippier
Sport360 -

Kieran Trippier insists England will not be overly reliant on his Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane at the World Cup.

Kane has been appointed England captain and goes into Monday’s Group G opener against Tunisia on the back of scoring 30 Premier League goals for Spurs last season.

Attention is understandably trained on England’s focal point, but Trippier believes their group rivals would be unwise to underestimate the side as a whole.

The defender said: “Everybody knows what Harry Kane’s all about, he’s a goalscorer and a great professional.

“But if you look all around our team we’ve got winners, we’ve got goals all around the pitch.

“It’s not just Harry, we’ve got a strong forward line, a lot of pace, youth and I know the boys are looking forward to getting on with it now.”
