Harry Kane has never hidden it: regardless of the financial offers he receives, his ‘marriage’ with Tottenham has lacked titles. Despite the world class of the Premier’s top scorer, he has never been able to lift a great trophy. This Saturday, once again, England has shown that it can be their moment. They have once again presented their credentials by standing in the semi-finals with a 0-4 win over Ukraine. Kane feels so: that this time he can be the one to lift the Euro Cup and at home, at Wembley. For now, in the temple of English football itself, they will play the semifinal against Denmark on Wednesday.
Criticism rained down on Harry Kane, whose club-level future is still up in the air at the start of the Euro. The still Tottenham player did not score in any of the three matches of the first phase (1-0 of the ‘pross’ against Croatia, 0-0 against Scotland and 1-0 victory against the Czech Republic). It was Raheem Sterling who scored the two goals for the English team.
But Kane began to score in this European Championship in a big way, against no less than Germany, when ‘citizen’ Sterling saw the goal again. A 2-0 in the round of 16 that put a sad end to Joachim Löw’s time as German coach and showed how far England are candidates to win their first European Championship.
This 0-4 against Ukraine further endorsed the inventors of football as aspiring to raise the trophy on June 11. Kane achieved a double, has 3 goals in this final phase and is in time to overcome the eliminated Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick, now in the lead, with 5 ‘goals’ scored each.
Kane, who knows what it is to lose a Champions League final, the one Liverpool won in 2019 against Tottenham, is the captain of a very brilliant English team, which has not conceded a goal and is strong in all its records. Kane has 3 goals in this European Championship, 9 in total in the final stages with England, equaling Alan Shearer and with what only Gary Lineker surpasses with 10. And yes, he dreams that July 11 is his day.
