After a run to the last four of the World Cup last summer and qualifying for the Nations League semi-finals to come in June, England are one of the favourites to win the European championships next year.
"I can tell just by being with him for a couple of days he will give everything for his country".
England captain Harry Kane won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup but thinks lifting the Nations League would eclipse that feeling.
"If we win the Nations League 2019 will top it".
Kane also had the chance to represent Ireland via his paternal grandparents, but said he never considered anything other than playing for England. "We want to make fans happy and be proud", said Kane, who won the golden boot in Russian Federation as top scorer with six goals.
"2018 was fantastic but the main thing for me is the team, trying to win things, and we have a chance this year".

"We know the chance to play a Euros where most of the games are at home is an awesome opportunity", said Tottenham star Kane.
"I think that was big for us, to prove to everyone that it wasn't just a one-off, that this team were really building for something special in the future".
"We know we want to win it and we want to make fans happy and be proud, but we know there is a long way ahead".
"I always feel like that - my whole career I have always wanted to show how good I am and I have always wanted to improve".
Asked if the players have to be reminded to park their club affiliations when they join up with England, the Tottenham striker added: "It kind of happens naturally".
"I always say racism in football shouldn't happen, because football is a sport, a attractive sport and makes people happy". I've still got a little bit to go.
"Young players who are maybe only starting now who are going to be more experienced and even better in a few years".
