Why Harry Kane epitomizes how England choke on big tournaments

“You’d bet your house on Harry Kane,” lamented former England star – and thankfully not a gambling man – Lee Dixon in the aftermath of the Three Lions captain’s penalty-cum-conversion over Hugo Lloris’ goal. In some ways, you would. He scores that all the time.

Kane held his head in his hands. It was cruel. No one deserved to miss less.

Because, frankly, no one has given more to the England side than he has – perhaps ever. His captaincy began with appreciation for this team at an all-time low and he has been the leading construction worker ever since. Few have had to be the English captain’s beacon – a role of chief distraction from reality – during such turbulent times in British society. No one has had to guide England through such challenging social problems. Now no one has scored more goals for this country than Kane.

And yet Harry Kane MBE is the picture of why, on the pitch at least, things didn’t quite click. He’s scored massive goals, but that’s not what wins major international tournaments.
