Harry Kane is inspiring kids all over the country with his footballing and leadership skills, and has proved that England has what it takes to go to the Euros final. Here are ten awesome reasons we love Harry Kane and everything about him!

He never gives up

Harry's been through a lot in his career, but he never lets it stop him! When he was younger he told he was too overweight to play for Arsenal. He didn't let that stop him though, and thanks to his determination, he's now captaining England!

He loves dogs

Harry's a dog dad to two adorable dogs called Brady (Named after USA sports star Tom Brady) and Wilson! Harry says they're a big part of his family's life, and his adorable pictures prove it!

He supports BLM

Harry has been open about why Black Lives Matter is a really important cause and why the team chooses to take the knee before each game. His inspiring determination to make sure football tackles racism HAD to make the list!

He's a record breaker

Harry's no stranger to breaking records: he's the first player since Gary Lineker to score 25 league goals for Spurs in one season. And he's scored a whopping scored 38 goals in 60 games for England. There's no way he's done yet either, so watch out for more record breaking in the future!

He's a big sports fan

Harry might be a footballer, but that doesn't mean he doesn't love other sports too! Harry is a huge golf fan and also loves American football. Just don't leave the team, Harry, football needs you more than golf!

He knows David Beckham

Ask anyone which one footballer from the last 30 years they'd love to meet, and the chances are it's David Beckham! Harry and David actually trained at the same school, and there's even a famous picture of Harry, David and Harry's wife Kate when they were just 11 years old! What a bunch of legends!
