Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane optimistic after England draw vs Poland

Speaking to ITV (h/t Independent), England captain Harry Kane was content with his side’s draw against Poland. While he did admit that the late equalizer was a tough one to digest but remained optimistic about England’s prospects in Group I with four more games left.

England were met with a stern challenge from Poland in Warsaw. The atmosphere was a hostile one with the away side being booed for taking the knee. Nonetheless, the match was a gritty affair as the two teams struggled to break the deadlock and take an advantage into halftime. Both sides failed to create any clear chances.

However, it was Kane who stepped up in the 72nd minute with a swerving shot that managed to get past the keeper. It was his 41st goal for England, meaning that he is now the fifth-highest scorer for England. Poland spoiled the party with an injury-time equalizer as Daniel Szymanski rose the highest to head home.

The draw was England’s first in six games which still leaves them top of Group I. Albania are behind them followed by Poland. Despite the late draw, captain Kane was happy with the overall situation.

“It’s a tough one to take, I thought we handled the game well. It’s not an easy place to come and another tough game. We were seeing the game out well. Away from home sometimes the pressure builds and they put a good cross in and scored a good header, that’s football. It’s still been a great camp for us, we’re still four points clear with four games to go.

“There were a couple of rebounds and second balls and it fell their way. We will learn from it and watch it back. There have been two tough away games in this camp, we’re still four points clear and we’re still in a great position.”

Harry Kane was happy despite the draw.

Kane will now shed his England colours and return to club duties. Given the form he has been in, Nuno Santo will be hoping that he continues in the same way for Spurs. Next up is a trip to Selhurst Park as Spurs try to resume their winning run.
