Harry Kane says he is ready to ‘go to war’ with Real Madrid star after Arsenal win

Kane admits they need to keep hold of Bellingham to achieve UCL dream

English football stars, Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham, are set to face off in a thrilling Champions League semi-final. The two players, who have made their mark on European football after leaving England's Premier League, are both eyeing their first major trophy.

Kane and Bellingham have been dubbed as English football’s two great exiles. They left the Premier League for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid respectively, ending the league's interest in Europe’s elite competition with quarter-final victories over Arsenal and Manchester City.

The move was strategic for both players. According to Kane, they snubbed moves to English clubs to give themselves a better chance of competing at the sharp end of the Champions League. This decision seems justified as they now prepare for a semi-final clash that could lead them straight into a final at Wembley on June 1.

Wembley ultimate goal for both English superstars

Both players are targeting this prestigious final ahead of England’s Euros campaign in Germany. After defeating Arsenal 1-0 (3-2 on aggregate), Kane along with his Bayern team-mates including fellow Englishman Eric Dier watched Real Madrid's penalty shoot-out victory in Manchester City fixture from their Allianz Arena dressing-room.

This victory has set up an exciting showdown between Kane's Bayern Munich and Bellingham's Real Madrid - an encounter that promises high stakes drama as each player eyes his first major trophy.

Harry Kane, FC Bayern Munich striker, said:

“Jude has had a fantastic season, he’s a top player, so I’m really happy for him. But it will be another war against his team but these are the experiences that we both went abroad to try to achieve. To play in these big nights in the Champions League, to play in these big semi-finals.

“It will be one to enjoy and I’m sure there will be a lot of English fans watching both of us. We have to focus on ourselves. I’ll say hello but once we’re on the pitch, it’s business.”

“Wembley is the dream for both of us, for sure. With Wembley being our national stadium, it’s extra motivation for us."

Thomas Tuchel has chance to sign off in style

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel is no stranger to Champions League success having won it with Chelsea in 2021. He is determined to sign off with another European Cup before he leaves Bavaria this summer after his side surrendered their Bundesliga crown to Bayer Leverkusen.

Under Tuchel's guidance, Harry Kane has thrived, and the upcoming semi-final will be a testament to his leadership and strategic prowess.

The Champions League semi-final promises to be an exciting encounter between two of England's finest football exports. As Harry Kane prepares to 'go to war' with Jude Bellingham, sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike can look forward to a thrilling showdown that could potentially reshape the landscape of European football.
