The striker scored six goals to guide England to their best World Cup finish since 1990.

Gareth Southgate, who managed the Three Lions in Russia, will also reportedly be awarded an OBE.

The honours are expected to be officially unveiled next week.

Kane, who has twice won the Premier League Golden Boot, also welcomed his second child into the world this year. Vivienne Jane was born in August, 19 months after Ivy Jane, Kane’s first daughter with Katie Goodland.

The forward has scored 13 goals this season, taking his career tally with Tottenham past the 150 mark. He has helped Spurs into the Champions League last 16 – where they will play Borussia Dortmund – and a defeat of Everton today would move the north Londoners to within two points of second place Manchester City.
