England defender Kieran Trippier has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane is far from the nation’s only goal threat at the 2018 World Cup.
Kane has been appointed England captain for this summer’s competition, and will enter the tournament off the back of scoring 41 times for Spurs in all competitions during the 2017-18 campaign.
Trippier, however, has warned England’s opponents that the nation have “goals all over the pitch”.
“Everybody knows what Harry Kane is all about, he’s a goalscorer, a great professional. But if you look all around our team we’ve got winners. We’ve got goals all over the pitch, it’s not just Harry,” Trippier told reporters.
“We’ve got a strong forward line, a lot of pace, youth. I know all the boys are looking forward to getting on with it now.”
England will open their Group G campaign with a clash against Tunisia on June 19.
