Kane: Germans' Admiration for England Grows After Bayern Move

England captain Harry Kane believes German fans' admiration for England has grown since his move to Bayern Munich, despite the historic rivalry between the two nations.

England captain Harry Kane believes that German fans have developed a greater appreciation for the English national team since his transfer to Bayern Munich. However, he doesn't expect the German crowd to cheer for Gareth Southgate's team during the Euro 2024 tournament starting in Germany.

Kane, who moved from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich for $129 million last year, has scored 44 goals in 45 games for the Bavarian giants. Despite this, Bayern failed to secure the domestic league title for the first time since 2013.

Despite the disappointment,Kane expressed his enjoyment of being in Germany and his excitement to return for the Euro 2024 matches with his national team. He mentioned receiving a message from Thomas Muller, his Bayern teammate, and described his return to Germany as a "homecoming."

The rivalry between Germany and England is well-known, evident in past World Cup and European Championship encounters. England defeated West Germany 4-2 in the 1966 World Cup final and won 2-0 in the round of 16 of Euro 2020. Germany, however, triumphed over England in a penalty shootout in the 1990 World Cup semi-final in Italy.

Kane emphasized the warm welcome he has received in Germany since his transfer and believes that the Germans' attitude towards England has improved during his time there.
