Even 4 goals on the score sheet couldn’t make England fans happy with their National team’s performance.
Tottenham’s star Harry Kane bagged a brace and finally ended his goal drought. It was clearly a lackluster performance from the Three Lions.
The Three Lions won their World Cup qualifier 4-0, with Tottenham star Kane bagging a brace, but the scoreline flattered what was otherwise a lackluster performance from Gareth Southgate’s men.
The dismay of the fans could be manifested with the boos Gareth Southgate’s men received at the end of the half-time. Also, a lot of stick was also received by the fans on social media.Although the team clearly struggled against the weak side, Harry Kane with great zeal rejected critics questions over players lacking ambitions for pulling on the white jersey.
“I think that’s a thoroughly unfair statement,” he said. “Every player here is very proud to represent their country.
“There’s a lot of hard work and effort to get where we are. It didn’t happen overnight, it started at a young age and took a lot of hard work and dedication.
“Anyone who says that doesn’t understand what it takes – that’s probably why they’re sitting at home watching it and we’re out there playing.”
On the Visitors:
“You can understand their frustration. We’re frustrated on the pitch,” he said.
“But sometimes people underestimate the teams we play. Especially at home, they can make it difficult, particularly in the first half when they’re energetic. It’s a big scalp to try to get a result against England.
“We stayed patient and we knew at half-time if we kept moving the ball, because it was hot out there, they’d tire. When we got those chances to be clinical, that’s what we did.”
Kane has just emerged from another Goalless August with Spurs but was always confident of getting back in the hunt and has now hit the target 10 times in 20 international appearances, including five times in his last three caps.
On Goalless August:
“As a striker you seem to go through (lean) spells – mine always seems to be the same month,” he said. “I knew it was September 1 and if I got a couple of chances I’d put them away.”
