Kane will lead the Three Lions in the biggest game of their careers - a quarter-final clash with Sweden.

More than 30 million people are expected to tune in at home to see if England can book a semi-final spot for the first time since 1990.

Boss Gareth Southgate has urged his stars not to blow the chance of a lifetime, having already beaten Colombia on penalties to reach the last-eight.

And Kane said: “We’re hungry for more. We love that feeling.

"If it goes to extra-time and penalties, we’ll be ready for that. We’re ready to do whatever it takes.”

Kane says England’s battle to beat Colombia in the last round has got Southgate’s men believing they can run through brick walls for each other.

"It’s made us even stronger,” he said.

"That joy in everyone’s face the other night, we’d worked so hard to achieve that, and it makes us even prouder.

"When you go through a battle like that, it gives you so much energy and belief to go and do it again. There is definitely a hunger because of the other night.

"We are just like family. We’ve spent a lot of time together and we all get on very well. I look at them as my brothers, and they do the same.

"I spoke about the togetherness and trust before the tournament, but we want to prove it on the pitch and show we can do that. We have done that so far.”

England have ripped up the World Cup record books since arriving in Russia - winning their first penalty shoot-out, securing their first knockout win since 2006 and scoring the most goals in a single game - a 6-1 thrashing of Panama.

But Southgate wants them to continue re-writing history.

He said: “We came into this tournament as the least experienced team, one of the youngest teams in it. But we’re an improving side who want to make our own history.

"Now we have a first knockout win in (more than) 10 years, a first penalty shoot-out win at the World Cup and the highest numbers of goals in a game.

"It’s not since 1990 that we’ve been in a World Cup semi-final. We’re hugely ambitious and want to do that, but there’s nothing more in our mind than this game.”

Southgate is wrestling with the dilemma of dropping Dele Alli in favour of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and will tell his squad the starting line-up this morning.
