The 30-year-old, who scored on his debut for German giants Bayern Munich following a big money summer move, praised the performances of an England side that have risen to every challenge put before them thus far. 

He urged them to complete the job and claim a maiden crown in the competition, in what will be their toughest test against a star studded Spanish outfit. 

‘Hi Lionesses just waned to say best of luck for the World Cup final on Sunday.’ He said in a video posted on Instagram. ‘I’ll be watching. It’s been an amazing journey so far and you should be really proud of yourselves. 

‘We’re all behind you, we’re all supporting you and we know you can do it. So go and get that World Cup win and bring that trophy home. All the best!’

England’s record scorer Kane has captained the men’s team in the last three major tournaments 

England’s thrilling 3-1 victory against hosts Australia ensured a first final berth fallen at the semi-final stage at each of the last two tournaments. 

Sarina Wiegman’s side are bidding to become the nation’s first senior football team to win the world title since 1966, after claiming the European Championship crown last summer. 

En route to that victory, the Lionesses came through a nail-biting knockout stage win against Sunday’s opponents thanks to late strikes from Ella Toone and Georgia Stanway. 

However, La Roja are much changed since then on account of serious upheaval in the camp following a revolt of up to 15 players ahead of the tournament. 

Still, Jorge Vilda’s side are the competition’s highest scorers with 17 goals in six games and have looked in dangerous form despite the raft of omissions.
