Kane, an avid and talented golfer, is also expected to be joined by former tennis star Ash Barty and boxing icon Canelo Alvarez on the team representing the rest of the world.

On the USA team, golfing legend Fred Couples will be captain Michael Strahan, Michael Phelps, Oscar De La Hoya and Ben Roethlisberger, among others.

The tournament will take place on the iconic Liberty National golf course in New Jersey, bringing together some of the world’s hottest athletes in different sports to compete in something outside of their profession.

Kane already got his hands on the Icons Series trophy during a trip to the Empire State Building in New York with teammate Barty.

The England captain, who has also spoken of his dream of becoming an NFL kicker, refused to rule out a future in professional golf.

“I think it’s a long way off. You never say never in anything,” he said. “I’m zero at the moment. I’m far from what the pros are, at the moment, I know that for sure.

“I focus on football. Golf is a great pastime to take away from football, especially during the season. That’s what I’m using it for now.

“I have the Icons series in New York at the end of the month which will be great fun, playing under pressure in front of a crowd. It’s like a Ryder Cup format where 12 sports stars from the rest of the world compete against 12 sports stars from America to New York.

“It’s at Liberty National. It will be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to play.
