Kane currently leads the race for the Golden Boot and was kept in reserve by Gareth Southgate for a 1-0 defeat to Belgium.

Speaking with Britain’s Sunday newspapers, Kane said;

“Maybe if I’d played against Belgium and didn’t score, I’d be thinking, ‘I didn’t score in the last game’. But I’m coming off the back of a hat-trick and I’m ready to go in a very important game for us against Colombia,”

“At the moment I think I can score every time we play. Especially when balls are just dropping in for you and things are going for you. You can’t wait to get out there.”

The Tottenham striker’s odds of winning the prize for the World Cup’s top goalscorer were slashed when Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal were eliminated by Uruguay on Saturday, leaving the world player of the year one short of Kane’s tally.

But Kane insists it is lifting the World Cup rather than individual honours than remains his priority.

“The Golden Boot would be great but I’m still there — and if we’re in the tournament longer it gives me a greater opportunity,” he added.

“My target isn’t the Golden Boot. The target is to win the tournament. That’s always been the target. If the Golden Boot comes along with that then perfect, but the target is to help the team.

“If my goals help the team, brilliant. If not I’ll be running round, working hard, trying to get assists. And that’s all I can do.”
