Kane remains content with England
There were a lot of concerns if Harry Kane is still pleased with England’s progress in the Euro tourney so far. The team’s shaky draw with Scotland has sent home fans fuming mad towards England which Kane needs to take note of.
As England’s skipper, Kane believes that the poor runs for England have led them to a tough spot in the tourney. The lack of sharp goals and attack has been the centre of the blame. Kane came into the game when Gareth Southgate asked for more energy on the offensive end, but nothing came.
Kane said he was not injured and just could not find his groove with the team so far. It seems the team’s main source of goals is slowing down as well, but the skipper knows how to work it out when it comes to the chances of winning.
For one, Kane still trusts the coach’s changes will only make them better in the long run. The fans need to have the same faith in them too.
‘Gareth is within his rights to make the changes he thinks are best for the team’, Kane said. ‘What we’ve seen over past games is about trying to peak at the right time. The best time to be peaking is in the knockout stages and we kick on from there’.
Kane is keen to see more changes for England. They are yet to book their shot in the next stage, which should be the focal point for the team at this point. They need to get their heads in the game and start a big run.
England is still in place to get to the next round, but they need to make sure they have a strong finish at hand. Kane says it has been tough for most of the players to get a win.
‘It’s all about the squad, making sure we are all feeling as fit and sharp as possible’, Kane said. ‘In my case, it was a tough couple of games and it’s about making sure I’m right for the rest of them. I didn’t have any issues. I felt going into those games as good as I’ve felt all season, if I’m honest’.
Kane has scored twice for his club Tottenham Hotspur and the national team since getting back from an injury in April. He’s patient with England’s young side and asks the same of the fans when they were booed off the draw with Scotland.
England has four points to open up their first two games in Group D, and they need to make sure they get the best result to close out the first stage of this event. The games are simply tough to win in the competition, so everyone needs to stay patient.
