Harry Kane England Lose Final on Penalties Shoot
England captain Harry Kane has called his team’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday “the worst feeling in the world”. Along with Harry Maguire, Kene scored from a place for only two England players. Italy won the shootout 3-2 after a 1-1 draw after extra time at Wembley. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka all missed their penalties and left England to miss out on a chance to win their first big trophy. 1966 World Cup. Anyone can miss a penalty.
Luke Shaw gave England a dream start when they scored in the second minute, but the fastest goal in the history of the Euro final did not inspire England to win as they slowly let Italy back into the match.
Leonardo Banucci equalized in the second half, staging England’s last penalty horror after a decade-long shoot-out defeat. Why did the Tottenham striker Kane admit that England held Italy’s hand by taking a cautious approach to the failed bid to defend their lead? We were playing against a very good team.
We got off to the perfect start. Sometimes it can go a little deeper. They had a lot of balls, he said. As we have seen fairly in control, they did not create too many possibilities. They got their progress from the set-piece and were 50-50 after that.
After reaching the final of the first European Championship with an average of the first record in the first title match since the 1966 World Cup, Kane insisted that England would come back from this terrible defeat. We won together, we lost together. We will learn and grow from it. These guys will grow from it and it will give us more inspiration for next year’s World Cup, he said.
