Alan Shearer criticises Harry Kane as England beat Croatia in Euro 2020

Speaking on BBC One (h/t London Football News), former England international and Premier League Hall of Famer Alan Shearer criticised Harry Kane after the Three Lions beat Croatia 1-0 in their UEFA Euro 2020 opener.

England kick-started their journey in the European championships on Sunday afternoon facing Croatia at Wembley. And Gareth Southgate’s men had to rely on a second-half strike from Raheem Sterling to clinch an important 1-0 victory on the day.

While Sterling turned saviour for the Three Lions, Harry Kane, who is the captain of the England team, wasn’t able to make much of a splash. The Tottenham superstar has been in terrific form in the lead-up to the Euros, having won the Premier League Golden Boot Award for 2020/21.

However, on Sunday, the 27-year-old seemed a bit scratchy and did not look in his elements before being subbed off. Speaking of Kane’s performance, Shearer claimed that he was the only England player that did not look sharp against Croatia.

“Probably only Harry Kane I suppose. He looked a little bit slow for me. That ball that came across, I was expecting him to put it in the back of the net. But England with playing well still didn’t create that many chances for him to get on the end of. Other than Harry Kane I thought everyone looked really sharp.”

Fellow pundit, and former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, however, dismissed the criticism, insisting that there was nothing to worry about Kane.

“I wouldn’t worry about Harry Kane. He’s our man. Save one (a goal) today. The team played well. There’s a really positive feeling about the group. Harry Kane will deliver when it comes.”

If England are to go the distance, Kane will need to be at his best. The Three Lions’ skipper won the Golden Boot three years ago at the FIFA World Cup and there is no reason why he cannot do the same in the Euros.
