Kane slammed for ‘tired’ performance for England against Scotland at Euro 2020

Harry Kane’s display was picked over by pundits as England were held to a goalless draw by Scotland at Euro 2020.

England skipper Kane struggled to make an impact on a rainy night at Wembley, as a lack of invention in attack from the hosts led to minimal efforts on goal.

Scotland more than held their own on the night, and came close to scoring themselves through both of their forwards, Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams.

Kane, meanwhile, failed to really trouble David Marshall in the Scottish goal, and was replaced by Marcus Rashford in the 74th minute.

On BBC Radio Live, former England winger Chris Waddle criticised the Spurs forward.

“I’ve got to say England have lacked ideas tonight, and quality in the final third,” he said.

Kane has struggled in this tournament

“Harry Kane has looked tired.”

ITV Sport pundit Roy Keane also criticised Kane.

“He doesn’t look up to speed,” he said.

“He’s on his heels all the time and if England really want to compete in this competition, you need your star men to perform.

“I’m glad Gareth took him off – there’s talk about him being undroppable, he’s the main man, if he’s not performing, get him off.

“Rashford gave them a little bit more energy, but still not enough.

“Before the competition, there was all the talk of him might be leaving Spurs and maybe he’s been distracted by that because that can be an energy zapper, if you thinking you’re moving clubs or if you’re in talks with other clubs, that’s not helpful.”

Kane had gone into the game claiming that he was a better player than the last time he faced the Scots in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

“I’ve got better at knowing when to drop deep and when to run in behind, and using that to my advantage makes it not as easy for defenders; sometimes they don’t know whether to come all the way with you or stay back,” he said.

“I guess I’m a player who takes each game differently.

“I’ll assess the game as I’m playing and see what is going to work best for the team. But for sure over the last few years I think I’ve become a better player and hopefully I will continue to do that over the next three years as well.”
