Tottenham striker Harry Kane admitted there were times when he wondered how long it would take him to achieve success at club or worldwide level.
The news of the deal for Kane was widely appreciated by fans, many of whom took to Twitter to express their delight that their star man has pledged his future to the club.
Tottenham are due to return to White Hart Lane next season, after a season as playing at Wembley.
Kane finished the bygone Premier League campaign as the league's second highest scorer, with 30 league goals from 37 appearances, and the 24-year-old striker will be hoping he can replicate his exceptional domestic form on the world stage.
'I'm really anxious about these Tottenham players, I don't think they know how to win.
"It's been fantastic to consistently get in the Champions League so I'm really excited to have another go at that".
Kane just missed out on a third straight Golden Boot after Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah scooped the award by two goals.
A host of top European clubs have been linked with Kane but England's captain has chose to remain in north London ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Kane heads to the World Cup as captain of his country after an extraordinary rise in recent seasons, and said he never stopped believing in himself.
"It's been a great season, like always the aim is to try to improve so hopefully I can do that this summer and obviously next season as well".
