Harry Kane Stops Interview Mid-Sentence To Listen To England Fans Sing 'Sweet Caroline' At Wembley

What incredible scenes.

England captain Harry Kane may well have provided us with the most wholesome moment of Euro 2020 so far.

Speaking shortly after his side's victory over Germany, Kane stopped his post-game interview mid-sentence to sit back and listen to Three Lions supporters sing Neil Diamond's hit classic 'Sweet Caroline' from inside Wembley.

The 27-year-old had only just begun his interview with ITV when he couldn't help but look up into the packed-out stands to take in every last second of the immense atmosphere.

"Harry, you've had some wonderful moments at the World Cup," the interviewer said.

"This, now. Germany. Beaten them in the Round of 16. Wembley. Electric."

Grinning from ear to ear, the skipper simply chuckled quietly to himself and replied: "Yeah."

Clearly struggling to contain his emotions after England's historic 2-0 win over the old foe, he then watched on in amazement as a chorus of voices rang out around the hallowed turf.

He did, however, finally manage to get a few words out.

"I'm speechless," Kane said.

"I don't know what to say.

"Amazing day, amazing game. The performance was top drawer, another clean sheet.

"But look, we go again, we haven't done anything yet so we'll enjoy it. We've got another big game on Saturday so let's get ready for that."

It's understood the 40,000-people crowd was the biggest sporting event in England since the start of the pandemic - 15 long, long months to be exact.

That presence of the home fans, combined with the huge victory itself, made the momentous occasion all the more special - and Kane could certainly sense it.

The Tottenham front man eventually caught his breath after the game.

"It's hard to sum up. I was speechless after the game. It's just an incredible day for us as a team and us as a nation," Kane told talkSPORT.

"It's been a tough time for everyone, the last 18 months, so to know that we put a smile on quite a few faces today is special.

"It's a day we'll never forget, but also we're a group with big expectations and big visions, so we can't get too carried away."
