Harry Kane insists he is ready to take on the pressure of leading both England and Tottenham and can point to his goalscoring record as Three Lions captain as proof.
The 26-year-old will take the armband at Spurs, with captain Hugo Lloris out for the rest of 2019 with a dislocated left elbow.
Last season's beaten Champions League finalists are struggling for form at present and were thrashed 7-2 by Bayern Munich before suffering a 3-0 reverse at Brighton ahead of the international break.
"As one of the leaders in the team and as a striker, I want to score goals and help the team in that way.
"It has worked out pretty well since I have been captain. But it is not just me who has to lead, there are other players in the team that definitely do that.
"We have a young team and an inexperienced team – we all try to help each other as much as we can.
"The defence are always talking, the midfield is always talking. The strikers are always talking about how can we get better. I have no issues in that role because I know I am not the only one doing it."
