HARRY KANE EXHIBITION OPENS AT MUSEUM OF LONDON

Harry up and bag yourself a spot at Museum of London's celebration of England's captain fantastic


The Museum of London might well be launching their most controversial exhibition tomorrow [May 21] - and your levels of excitement will probably depend on which area of the capital you call home.


Harry Kane: I want to play football charts the life and career of the England and Spurs captain, with his memorabilia, shirts and golden boots all on display alongside rarely-seen photographs and even an interactive recreation of a dressing room, where visitors can hear of the figures who inspired one of England’s leading goalscorers.


The free exhibition will chart his route to the top, from local London clubs, Ridgeway Rovers and Gladstone Rangers, to his successful loan spells at Leyton Orient and Millwall and of course his journey to becoming a bonafide Tottenham Hotspur legend.


Kane says of the launch: “The Museum of London got in touch and wanted a Londoner to inspire young children to be their best so I am delighted to have all my memorabilia on show, with trophies, shirts, golden boots and some personal pieces which haven’t been seen publicly before.”


It’s perhaps the best time for a local exhibition on the player - with transfer rumours swirling, it might be the last season he can be discussed as a Londoner whose entire career has taken place within the M25 - but curiously it closes in December, just when he could find himself elevated to true, national icon status.


England head into the World Cup this winter with high hopes that Kane will be spending Christmas cradling the elusive, golden trophy.


Will paying your respects to the England captain help drive him on to success in Qatar? No, it probably won’t, but we need all the help we can get, so go stroke his golden boots, pray in front of his England debut shirt and offer sacrifices to the spirit of Jules Rimet at the Museum of London this year.
