Watch: Harry Kane and J.J. Watt discuss Super Bowl LV, Tom Brady and NFL aspirations

Ahead of Super Bowl LV between Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, Tottenham striker Harry Kane sat down with Houston Texans' J.J. Watt to discuss all things NFL.

England captain Kane is a huge NFL and New England Patriots fan and admits that he stuck with the Pats despite their disappointing season, but he reveals that he watches out for the performances of former quarterback Tom Brady, who is looking to win a seventh Super Bowl and his first with the Buccaneers.

"I stayed with the Patriots," Kane said. "I was loyal, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I had one eye on Tom [Brady] - it has been an interesting story to see him go to the Bucs and do well. That has been great to watch.

"Obviously, the Patriots had a bit of a rough season, but I've got to stick with them. You can't always have the highs, you've got to have some lows as well."

The pair then move onto looking at Kane's future career after football, with the possibility of becoming an NFL kicker mentioned in the past.

"I get asked this question a lot," Kane said in response to Watt. "Because I love the game so much and I mentioned it would be great to explore that opportunity one day.

"It's still early and I'm still thinking about soccer first. I know it will take a lot of hard work and a lot of dedication to go out and do it, a lot of training and practising.

"I guess it comes down to who can handle the pressure the best. The more I watch, the more I see that; a lot of the time, the game goes down to a last-second field goal.

"I'd like to think my experience of dealing with that in soccer would put me maybe at an advantage compared to some of the other guys who maybe haven't had that experience coming out of college.

"I guess that's what I'm banking on. Like I say, it's early stages, but I look forward to hopefully exploring that one day."

Houston Texans' J.J. Watt to become a top goalkeeper?

While Kane is eyeing up a potential career in the NFL, Watt admits that he believes he would make a good goalkeeper and wants the opportunity to show Jose Mourinho just what he can do.

"I was talking to my wife, she's a professional soccer player [Kealia Watt] and I always joke with her that if you gave me one year of training, I could be a goalkeeper.

"So, during quarantine, we were training together and I was like, 'here's my chance'. She fired one past my head so fast that I immediately recalculated all my decisions. I was immediately humbled. Would Jose let me be a keeper one day in practice?"

"Absolutely. You're more than welcome to come and join us," Kane confidently replied.

Super Bowl LV is live on BBC One, Sky Sports NFL/Main Event, Sky One and NFL Game Pass on Sunday, February 7, kick-off 11.30 p.m.
