Interview with Harry Kane - Part 1

4 August 2016

Following the recent announcement that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club are to play their Champions League fixtures for the 2016/17 season at Wembley Stadium, we caught up with England and Tottenham striker - Harry Kane, to ask how the team is feeling about playing at this prestigious stadium in Brent.

 

What are you most looking forward to about playing at Wembley Stadium?

 

Harry: It's a great stadium, the national stadium and a big pitch that will suit our style of play and of course the more fans, the better.

 

Do you think the fans will enjoy coming to Wembley to watch you play?

 

Harry: Yes, definitely. There will be even more Tottenham fans there, so that means it will be a special atmosphere. Hopefully we'll play well there as well.

 

What's it like walking out of the tunnel before kick-off at Wembley Stadium?

 

Harry: It's amazing. It's normally a big occasion with England or a cup final and this time, it will be Champions League. It will be something different stepping out there for a 'normal' club game but something we're all looking forward to.

 

What's your most memorable moment playing at Wembley Stadium?

 

Harry: It has to be my England debut, scoring after 79 seconds, a special moment I'll never forget.

 

Will it be strange playing at Wembley in a Tottenham shirt as opposed to an England one?

 

Harry: Yes, a little. Most of us have done it in the League Cup Final (2015), a few of us have played there regularly for England but I'm sure most of the lads will soon get used to it.

 

What is it about playing at Wembley Stadium that is different to playing at other stadiums?

 

Harry: For a start, Wembley is a big, big stadium, obviously a lot bigger than we're used to playing in week in, week out. It's a nice, big pitch, great atmosphere and something we're all looking forward to.

 

What is your earliest memory of Wembley?

 

Harry: I remember going to watch England against Switzerland back in 2008. I think I was only 14 at the time. Jermaine Jenas scored and England won 2-1, so I was there to see a Spurs player score in an England win.

 

The second part of the interview will be published next week.
