England captain Harry Kane is very confident that he can recover from the fatigue of a taxing World Cup campaign as he plans to return to action in Tottenham Hotspur's opening Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on August11.
After 48 appearances across all competitions for Tottenham last term, the 24-year-old forward continued his prolific form at the World Cup, scoring six goals in as many matches to lead England to the semi-finals and win the Golden Boot award.
"I want to be playing in four weeks' time," Kane told British media. "We'll have to talk to the gaffer (Mauricio Pochettino) at Spurs. It will be a couple of weeks (off).
"The most important thing is mentally (to be ready). Physically, this has been our pre-season. We tick over and are going to just do nothing for two weeks. We will ease our way into it.
"Physically your body will take you where you never thought it would. It's always mentally. We train all year round... With the season starting soon it will be hard, but that's something we have to deal with."
"I will hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully try and score in August (for the first time in the Premier League) this year," he added.
