England captain Harry Kane said Tuesday that they have a great opportunity this year to have “football come home” before meeting Denmark in the Eurocup semi-finals on Wednesday. Kane said that “it will be sad not to see Eriksen in the game.”
The English captain responded to the Danish goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, who joked at a press conference that football, referring to the famous song ‘Three Lions’, had never returned home at the Euro Cups.
“We have a great opportunity this year. We do not take Denmark lightly, far from it. We know we are facing a very tough team, with great players and very solid. Schmeichel is right, we have not made it in this competition, but now we are in a great position, we are only two games away, “said Kane at a press conference.
The English can get into the Eurocup final for the first time this Wednesday, for which they will have to defeat the Danes. Before the game, a tribute will be paid to Christian Eriksen, a Danish player who suffered cardiac arrest on the first day of the Euro.
“I am good friends with Christian. It will be sad not to see him in the game, it is a big part of the Danish success in recent years. It was terrible what happened to him, but the most important thing is that he is recovering well. He will be cheering on his team. like the most, “Kane said. EFE
