So close and at the same time so far, that is how England lived it after losing the final of the European Championship to Italy in the penalty shootout. One of the most important pieces of 'The Three Lions' was Harry Kane. The Tottenham forward gave statements to the press after the defeat they suffered against ‘Azzurri and considered that, despite everything, they are on the right track.
“I couldn't have given more. The boys couldn't have given more. Penalties are the worst feeling in the world when you lose. It was not our night, but it was a fantastic tournament and we should hold our heads high. Of course it will hurt now and for a while, but we are on the right track", said the English attacker.
Harry Kane highlighted the possession of Italy, but considered that his team had more control within the match: “We played against a very good team. We had the perfect start and they had the ball, but we were controlling it, they didn't have many chances. His moment came with the set piece. We improved in extra time and we had a chance. Then the penalties are penalties. We gave everything, but it was not our night, "said the‘ Citizen ’.
"We have to keep our heads high", this is how the Spurs attacker saw it, who also stressed that the tournament was good for England. His new goal is the Qatar 2022 World Cup. “Anyone can miss a penalty. We win together, we lose together. We will learn and grow from here. This will give us more motivation for the World Cup next year, ”said Harry. “We should be very proud as a group of what we have achieved. We want to always win, so this will hurt for the rest of our careers, but that's football”, Kane concluded.
