Harry Kane equaled Rooney as England’s top scorer but took responsibility for missing the penalty

A sad defeat in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Harry Kane took over “Responsibility, as captain and as the one who missed the penalty” that he could have forced extra time against France (1-2), in the quarterfinals, while commenting that he will have to “live with it and accept it”

“I couldn’t be more proud of my teammates. It was a tough night. We had better chances, but football comes down to small details; as captain and the one who missed the penalty, I take responsibility. I’ll have to live with it and accept it.” said in mixed zone.

“I felt safe throwing it, I just didn’t execute it the way I wanted to,” the Tottenham footballer maintained about his failure from about eleven meters in which he previously managed to score the tie at one.

Of course, Kane was confident that his good performance will make them go far in future tournaments: “The team is in a good moment, with players in their best form, and there will be good moments in the future. Now we are very angry that it is over, because we were convinced that we could go all the way, but we can be proud of what we have done”.

Harry Kane, England’s top scorer

Harry Kane equaled Wayne Rooney as the top scorer in the history of the English soccer team by scoring his 53rd goal, in the duel against France, this Saturday in the quarterfinal match of the World Cup in Qatar.

The ‘9′ of the English team converted a penalty committed by Aurélien Tchouaméni at the beginning of the second half to put the provisional 1-1 on the scoreboard (54). He launched with his right foot to the left of Hugo Lloris, who had already beaten the other side, to get his second goal of the tournament, after the one achieved in the round of 16 against Senegal.

The 29-year-old Tottenham striker and England captain reached this number of goals in his 80th game with the ‘Three Lions’ shirt, while the former Manchester United and Everton striker needed to play 115 games (of the 120 he disputed with England).
