England captain Harry Kane insists he pays no attention to people who accuse him of diving and is only focused on scoring goals.

Kane, who bagged a hat-trick in the Three Lions' 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifier win against Bulgaria on Saturday, has been in focus after going down in the box in the last two games for Tottenham.

He was brought down by Newcastle defender Jamal Lascelles a fortnight ago but VAR ruled not to award a penalty while the system was not even used after Kane went down under a challenge from Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos in last weekend's north London derby.

Kane's Tottenham team-mate Danny Rose lauds the striker as the best professional he has worked with and has urged people to focus on the goals he scores rather than anything else.

"I have not seen the press about Harry diving but he is not one to pay attention to that stuff and people should focus on his goal record and what he offers to any team across the world and we should relish watching him," the left-back said.

"I don't want to put pressure on Harry but when he is in the team, you are guaranteed goals and a leader who will give everything. It is a privilege to be with him.

"Harry is mentally very strong. He is strong willed, for sure he will never pay attention to anything negative said about him and in the same way he will never get carried away with the plaudits.

"He is literally the ultimate professional, the best professional I have ever trained with or played with and his record for club and country is no coincidence.

"You saw the standard of his penalties today – that is what he works on every day. It is typical Harry just to respond in the way that he did by scoring a hat-trick."
