Tottenham star Harry Kane sees himself as a leader in the three lions squad and wants to be a long-term captain for the squad.
The Premier League highest goal scorer is set to lead the squad against Scotland in the World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
This is Kane’s first game under Southgate, having missed the last six games due to injury.
“I see myself as one of the leaders now in the team and I’m looking forward to it,” he said.
“I’m only 23 but I feel that there are a lot of younger players in the team compared to me and I have a good relationship with them.
“I have a good relationship with all the players – the older, the younger – and there are quite a few Spurs boys in there as well. It helps as we play with each other, train with each other day-in, day-out, so we know each other very well on the pitch, but off the pitch also.
“If someone is feeling a bit down, or if they’re not quite right then we are there to know that and help them out.”
