Kane: I am not tired

Harry Kane has denied claims that he is suffering from fatigue and insists he is '100 per cent' fresh ahead of England's game against Iceland.

Kane was criticised for his performances in England's opening Group B games against Russia and Wales when he failed to score and was subsequently left out of the starting side for the goalless draw with Slovakia.

It has been suggested that a long season with Tottenham has taken its toll on the striker, but he insists that is not the case and is confident he is ready to perform if called upon against Iceland.

"I'm not tired, I've had it before last year when it was the Under-21s to the Euros, people said the same thing," Kane told reporters on Friday.

"I'm 100 per cent fresh. I feel sharp, I feel ready and if called upon I will be out there giving 110 per cent.

"We want to progress, now is a better time than ever. We have to make sure we are focused and ready to go, hopefully maybe with a bit of luck and a bit of fortune we will win the game comfortably."

Kane's demotion to the bench was one of a number of changes manager Roy Hodgson made to the team for the Slovakia game and the striker has no issue with the manager's use of the squad.

"I think it's part of the tournament, we have a great squad of players and use everyone in it in the right way. I think not many teams will play the starting XI throughout the whole tournament," he explained.

"As players we need to be ready when called upon and I think we are. Anyone who steps in or out is focused on the team. If it changes then we are ready for that and go out there for the win."
