But Kane, 27, still took the time to send his best wishes to the Crick family, with two-year-old Harry battling a rare form of cancer.
Harry was diagnosed with the disease in December 2020 and has undergone surgery to remove a tumour the size of a tennis ball, as well as enduring five rounds of chemotherapy.
The Crick family are looking to raise money through their GoFundMe page to relocate to Germany for two months to help Harry get the vital treatment he needs.
In the video, speaking to Harry’s ten-year-old brother Olly, Kane said: “Hi Olly, how you doing, mate?
“I hear your brother’s going through a tough time.
“I just wanted to wish you all the best and wish your brother all the best, not just from me but from all the England team and staff as well.
“Hopefully we can put a smile on your face tomorrow night, but I just wanted to send my best wishes. All the best guys.”

Dad of Harry and Olly, 32-year-old Matt, revealed what a ‘fantastic boost’ it was for the whole family to receive the message from the England captain.
Matt said: “It was such a fantastic boost for Olly to get a video message from Harry Kane.
“It’s incredible that the man of the moment took time out of his day to do this, the day before the biggest football game of his career to date.
“It’s cheered us all up. We’re so grateful and will be cheering him on tonight when he leads the team out to face Italy.
“Come on England!”
Hugh Adams, of Brain Tumour Research, added: “It was really wonderful to see Harry Kane has sent a message of support to little Harry and his family, on this most important of footballing weekends.
“We send our best wishes and support to the England team and thank the captain for helping to shine a light on this cruel disease.”
