(REUTERS) - Striker Harry Kane says there is no reason to press the panic button ahead of Tuesday's international against France. He is confident England can redeem themselves after a lacklustre performance in the 0-2 friendly loss to Spain.

The European champions had more than 60 per cent of possession during Friday's game in Alicante. Goals from Mario Gaspar and Santi Cazorla in the final 20 minutes were enough to end England's 15-match unbeaten run.

Kane, who has scored five goals in his last three Premier League games for Tottenham Hotspur, remains optimistic ahead of the Euro 2016 tournament and has urged supporters to retain belief in the side.

"People need to stay patient. We're not going to win every game.

"We're playing these teams for a reason, to get experience.

"We've got to stay confident," Kane was quoted as saying by the British media.

"We know what we want to do and what we want to achieve.

"We've got another tough test against France (on Tuesday), which we want to win.

"We've got to keep doing things right, don't panic and go from there."
