Former World Cup-winner Sir Geoff Hurst says Harry Kane’s ‘unique’ eye for goal will be vital to England’s hopes at the FIFA World Cup .
The Three Lions have been drawn in Group G alongside Belgium, Panama and Tunisia, and they kick-off heir campaign against the latter in Volgograd on June 18.
Hurst hit a hat-trick in the 1966 final as England claimed their one and only world title, and he believes Kane – who hit no less than 6 hat-tricks in 2017 – will lead the charge in Russia.
“Kane’s been doing it consistently over the last three seasons, not only for Tottenham but for England,” Hurst told Goal at the launch of the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola.
“He’s got a unique capability of being able to score goals from everywhere… It’s phenomenal and [will be] very important, of course, to England’s success in the summer.”
As Coca-Cola's official source of news from the tour, Goal will be travelling across the globe with the trophy over the next four months, with the trophy set to visit no less than 91 cities across 51 countries and six continents.
