Harry Kane has spoken for the first time since missing a penalty against France.
Kane participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as captain of the England national team. Kane showed perfect performance from the group stage to the round of 16, leading the team to the quarterfinals. But one crucial mistake frustrated Kane as well as England.
Against France, Kane faced two penalty kick (PK) opportunities. The first PK was lightly successful, but in the second PK, he flew high over the goal and missed. In the end, England lost 1-2, ending their World Cup journey. After the game, Kane couldn’t lift his head in regret and bought many fans’ worries.
Fortunately, he has shown the same class since his comeback. Kane is showing off his scoring ability by scoring three goals in three English Premier League (EPL) matches played after the World Cup break. Before he knew it, he was Kane, who was ranked second in the scoring rankings with 15 goals in the league.
However, Kane still had the loss in France in mind. In an interview with the British Evening Standard on the 6th (Korean time), he said, “It was a difficult moment for me. It’s never easy, but it’s part of football and part of the highs and lows of the sport.” 토토사이트
Kane took a break of about 10 days after the World Cup. “I took some time to reflect. The thought of wanting to go back and be successful made me even more hungry. So a night like last night (against Crystal Palace) is good for me and the team,” he said, adding that the pain grew even more.
Kane also recalled the situation at the time. “I wanted to play as quickly as possible after the PK loss and get it out of my head. I’ll probably remember it for the rest of my life, but that’s part of the game. It won’t affect me as a player or as a person. I’ll keep trying to improve, and after returning I was happy to get my first win,” he said.
Kane also opened up about Son Heung-min. “I’m really happy with Son Heung-min. He’s worked really hard from behind the pitch and in every game, and sometimes he needs a little bit of luck to get his way as a striker. Hopefully, that can give him a lot of confidence now,” Kane said. He’s a really important player for us and we need him if we want to do something important this season.”
