Bayern's Kane on trophy hopes, Messi and Ronaldo inspiration

Harry Kane believes he has only just reached half-time. It might appear a slightly dismissive, almost self-deprecating assessment of a career that's already seem him excel at Tottenham, become England's captain and all-time record goal scorer and join Bayern Munich for €100 million ($110m) as their new talismanic No. 9 this summer.

But Kane judges himself by the highest standards and against the game's greatest players. Many would buckle under such comparisons, but the striker has actively invited it, spending the last decade aspiring to rival the feats of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the dynamic duopoly at the top of world football for so long.
