It's all a far cry from two years ago when Kane was in the England side humiliated by Iceland at the Euros.
"It's fantastic to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he explained.

"I'm proud to make ex-players proud and I'm sure it's bringing back memories for them".
The Spurs forward and Golden Boot hopeful is preparing for England's biggest game in decades on Wednesday when the Three Lions take on Croatia in the semi-final. We want that feeling. I mean the moment you head it proper, you feel it's a good one. We just want to finish the job and we will try to do it. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.
Thanks to the power of social media, the Tweet came to Kane's attention and England's star striker was quick to send his best wishes to Ben and called him an "inspiration". Know what I mean love?'
Ben's father also told the news source that his son "really liked football before he got ill and has suddenly gone England insane in the last couple of weeks, so much so that "England" and "Harry Kane" are some of the first words he learned to say again as his speech came back".
