Harry Kane after England’s elimination and missing a decisive penalty: “I will have to live with the responsibility”

A sad defeat in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Harry Kane took “responsibility, as captain and as the one who missed the penalty” that could have forced extra time against France (1-2), in the quarterfinals, while commenting that he will have “to live with it and assume it”

“I couldn’t be prouder of my teammates. It was a tough night. We had better chances, but football comes down to small details; As captain and the one who missed the penalty, I take responsibility. I will have to live with it and assume it,” he said in the mixed zone.

“I felt safe throwing it, only I did not execute it as I wanted,” said the Tottenham player about his failure from about eleven meters in which he previously managed to score the tie to one.

Of course, Kane was confident that their good performance will make them go far in future tournaments: “The team is in a good moment, with players in their best form, and there will be good moments in the future. Now we are very angry that it is over, because we were convinced that we could go all the way, but we can be proud of what we have done.”

Harry Kane, England’s top scorer
Harry Kane equalled Wayne Rooney as the top scorer in the history of the English national football team by scoring his 53rd goal, in the match against France, this Saturday in the quarterfinal match of the World Cup in Qatar.

The ‘9′ of the English team converted a penalty committed by Aurélien Tchouaméni at the beginning of the second half to put the provisional 1-1 on the scoreboard (54). He threw with his right leg to the left of Hugo Lloris, who had already beaten the other side, to achieve his second goal in the tournament, after the one achieved in the second round against Senegal.

The Tottenham striker and England captain, 29, reached this number of goals in his 80th match with the ‘Three Lions’ shirt, while the former Manchester United and Everton striker needed to play 115 games (of the 120 he played for England).
