England coach Gareth Southgate is yet to decide who will captain the team at the 2018 World Cup as they close in on qualification.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane will lead England against Slovenia on Thursday, where victory will ensure them a place at next summer’s finals in Russia.

“We have several people that I think can step into that fold now – and that can only benefit us,” Southgate said.

Previous permanent skipper Wayne Rooney retired from internationals in August.

Southgate has rotated the captaincy since taking over from Sam Allardyce last November.

During his reign, Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has worn the armband on four occasions, Kane twice, with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill and West Ham goalkeeper Joe Hart doing so one occasion each.

“It’s not just about the matchday – it’s everything around the camp, thinking how you integrate the squad and how you involve other people and the moments to step forward, leading by example, leading by having a quiet word with people,” added Southgate.

“There’s lots of things that go towards making a good captain. That won’t happen overnight, we’re talking about leadership experience that comes over a longer period of time.”
