Tottenham star Harry Kane gets a Museum of London exhibition

The star, who grew up in Chingford in east London, has collaborated with the museum on the exhibition, which includes personal memorabilia including the England shirt he wore on his goal debut and shirts from stints in the capital from Millwall to Leyton Orient and Spurs.

Other items on display include his England captaincy armband and his 2018 World Cup golden boot.

Kane said: “The Museum of London got in touch and wanted a Londoner to inspire young children to be their best so I’m delighted to have all my memorabilia on display, which includes trophies, shirts, gold boots and some personal pieces. which have not been seen in public before.

“I now have three children, so I know how important it is to inspire the younger generation and help them understand how far you can go with hard work, dedication and confidence.

“The display runs until the World Cup and is free to enter so I would encourage everyone to go down and see it if they have the chance. There are some very special items in there – from my World Cup gold boot and MBE to the shirt and armband of my first game as England captain, which mean a lot to me.”

Called Harry Kane: I want to play football, the show opens May 21 and features a recreated locker room where visitors can listen to his pre-match playlist and learn about his journey from local football with East London youth clubs such as Ridgeway Rovers to Tottenham Hotspur.

Exhibition curator Zeynep Kussan said: “Harry Kane grew up in London and worked his way through grassroots football. It’s important to highlight this story and how important grassroots work is.

“With the European Championship final for men played here in the capital, we also wanted to capture something from this moment. We shouldn’t wait for something to be in the past to celebrate or tell the story in a museum – just like football, we should all be together at that moment.

“With the Women’s European Championships and the World Cup approaching, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about a player who has risen to the top of London grassroots football and what it takes to play at the highest level of the game.”
