Harry Kane wished the Lions good luck as they prepared for their opening match at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The men’s England captain joined teammates Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Grealish in a video message of encouragement ahead of tomorrow’s game against Haiti in Australia.

Ahead of the game at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, defender Lucy Bronze said she had been in touch with Harry, who had urged the team to add a World Cup win to last year’s Euro championship.

In a video sent to the Lions’ camp, Harry said: “Good luck for this summer’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. I know you worked so hard for this. Obviously you are the European champion but go one step further and win the world championship.

“All the best from me and the whole team, good luck.”

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said in a second clip: “You’ve got all the support back home, the whole country is behind you and we’ll all be watching so all the best – take it home.”

The tournament got off to an impressive start yesterday for the hosts New Zealand and Australia, who both won their respective matches against Norway and Ireland 1-0.
