Harry Kane has thanked his Tottenham and England teammates after being awarded an MBE in the Queen’s new year’s honours list.
The striker captained England to the World Cup semi-finals in Russia over the summer, scoring six goals and winning the tournament Golden Boot.
He scored 41 goals for Spurs in all competitions last season and reached the 30-mark in the Premier League for the first time back in May.
This season Kane has picked up where he left off last term, finding the net 16 times so far for his club as well as bagging important goals for England in the UEFA Nations League.
Earlier this month, he came third in the voting for BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and he has now received one of the country’s highest honours in the form of an MBE.
The 25-year-old said receiving the honour is “quite surreal” – you can watch his full interview on Spurs TV.
I'm very passionate about our country and very patriotic so to get an MBE makes me immensely proud. It has been a great year for club and country. It shows hard work pays off but I couldn't do it without the teammates, family & friends I've got around me. Thank you. ? #NYHonours pic.twitter.com/ek9giBw2ci

He will be hoping to add to his goal tally when Tottenham face Wolves at Wembley on Saturday.
