Harry Kane has warned Denmark he feels unstoppable as he sets his sights on firing England into the European Championship final.

England’s captain has burst into life with three goals in the last two games, against Germany and Ukraine, but Denmark defender Andreas Christensen claims his team know how to thwart the centre forward.

Kane believes concentrating solely on trying to contain him is a risky strategy – declaring that the England squad is packed with players who are capable of running riot.

When asked whether he could be stopped if he was in peak form, Kane said: ‘To be honest, probably not. My game understanding, in terms of what I need to do to not just help myself but also the team, is probably at its best in my career so far.

‘It is not a problem. If you try to stop me that’s OK because we have got other players who are just as good, who are going to cause problems. It is not the case where you stop me and you stop us as a team. We have plenty of threats, plenty of options, plenty of different ways of playing.

‘From my point of view it is just assessing that on the pitch, seeing what formation they are playing and setting up and just trying to adapt my game to that. I feel like when I’m playing at my best I can score goals or provide assists against anyone.’

Kane has had to deal with a lot of scrutiny but his two-goal display in the 4-0 quarter-final win over Ukraine indicated he has turned a corner. 

Assessing his chances of finishing as Euros top scorer, he said: ‘Going into any tournament as a striker it’s something you aim to achieve because it means you are doing well and the team is probably doing well.’

Kane, who won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup, added: ‘It’s not something I definitely set out to get, the first objective is to win the main trophy. If I am scoring goals and I end up winning the Golden Boot it means we have a greater chance of being successful.

‘I would trade all my individual trophies for a team trophy any day and that’s the opportunity we have.’

England boss Gareth Southgate backed his players, saying: ‘I’ve got total trust in them and they’re ready. They’re just looking forward to a hugely exciting opportunity.

‘They’re excited by it, I don’t think they’re inhibited by it. That’s why I’m not worried about the occasion. We had that with the Germany game and we dealt with it.’
