Kieran Trippier says that England and Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane "lifts" the whole dressing room.

Kieran Trippier has claimed that England captain Harry Kane has a huge influence in the dressing room.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker scored 30 Premier League goals last season, and he is off and running at the World Cup having netted twice already.

Kane scored the opener and the winner, which came in the 91st minute, of the Three Lions' 2-1 victory over Tunisia in their Group G opener in Russia.

Trippier, who plays alongside the striker at club level, has claimed that the forward's presence goes beyond the pitch.

"If things are not working he's got a big voice in the dressing room, everyone listens to him," the right-back told reporters. "He has a presence. When he's with you, you just feed off him. He lifts you when he's around, he just lifts you. He dedicates his life to football. He's so professional."

Next up for England is a group match against Panama this Sunday.
