Kane started the first two England games but found himself on the bench in the final group clash against Slovakia.

The Spurs star has rejected any notion he is suffering from fatigue after a hectic 2015-16 campaign, during which he made 50 appearances for club and country.

“Look: I’m 100% fresh. I feel sharp, I feel ready so, if called upon, I will going out there and giving 110%,” he told the FA’s official website.

The Three Lions have managed just three goals in as many games at Euro 2016 and Kane is yet to find the back of the net in France.

The forward believes England have impressed but admits they need to be more ruthless in front of goal in the knockout stages.

He added: “I think we’ve been the better team in every game we’ve played, but now we’re in the knock-out stages it is about scoring as many goals as we can and hopefully keeping as many clean sheets as well.

“We’re doing all we can to put the ball in the back of the net and we’ve scored a few goals – it isn’t like we’ve scored no goals at all.

“Maybe it’s about being a little more clinical in the final third – not just in terms of finishing, but a few crosses and passes could have been better.

“Overall, in the final third we’ve got to be that little bit better.”
