Tottenham star wins another prestigious accolade

Harry Kane

Tottenham star Harry Kane has been named as the 2017 England Men’s Player of the Year.

The 24-year-old polled 75% of the votes which was received from the members of the England supporters club.

Kane was in good form for the England national team during their world cup qualification campaign and after scoring seven times in six fixtures for the Three Lions last year, he succeeds 2016 winner Adam Lallana.

Kane said after the achievement: “It’s always special to represent your country so to be voted as England’s best player of 2017 from such a talented squad is a real honour after what was a memorable year for me personally.

“To play your part in reaching the finals of a World Cup is every young footballer’s dream and I’d like to thank all of my international teammates for the part they played in that journey.

“However, I’d especially like to thank the Three Lions’ fans for their fantastic support both at Wembley and across Europe. Now here’s to an exciting summer in Russia.”

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was selected as the under-21 player of the year after receiving 33% of the votes in a separate poll.

Pickford is regarded as one of the best up and coming keepers in the Premier League and stands a good chance of being included in the England squad that will travel to the 2018 world cup.
