And he is also driven by his own painful run of suffering three final defeats with Tottenham.
Kane, 27, said: “It’s about doing what we have done and what we’ve learnt for the last four or five years as a group.
“That’s being calm in moments and then being ruthless — that’s what we are going to need to do against a very good Italian side.
“We’re representing the country and want everyone to be proud of what we’re doing, on and off the pitch.
“To have these Euros at Wembley, in front of our fans, where we can really connect with them and see their joy, has been truly special.”
Kane, who has scored four goals at the tournament, is looking to end his own cup final curse.
He has lost two EFL Cup finals, with Spurs in 2015 and last season, while he also suffered Champions League final heartache against Liverpool in 2019.
In the latter two finals Kane was rushed back from injury to play.
He added: “I’ve played three finals and two of them I had injuries before. So my focus was more on getting fit than actually on the final.
“It’s nice to be going into this one free of that in the mind and coming in on the back of scoring in a few games in a row.
“As a striker, that’s a great feeling to have.
“I feel confident and I feel like the team is in a really good place and with really good self-belief.

“Of course, it’s not just going to happen easily. We must work really hard to make it happen.”
Kane expects a tough battle against centre-backs Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.
The Spurs talisman added: “They are great defensively but we feel we can beat them.”
