Harry Kane will captain England against Slovenia, but Gareth Southgate is yet to choose a permanent skipper.

Southgate confirmed Kane will lead the side out on Thursday night but he stopped short of naming the Tottenham striker as his permanent captain.

The manager has been reluctant to appoint a permanent captain since succeeding Sam Allardyce last year and has elected to name his skipper on a game-by-game basis.

Jordan Henderson led the national side to wins over Slovakia and Malta earlier this year, while Kane took charge of the role against France and Scotland.

Southgate is yet to decide if he will appoint a permanent captain ahead of the World Cup in Russia next summer, but he believes Kane is the right man to lead England against Slovenia at Wembley.
