Club News: Antonio Conte urges Tottenham Hotspur stars to put aside their World Cup heartbreak

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has urged striker Harry Kane and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to put aside their World Cup heartbreak before they return to club football.

Speaking to the media as quoted in the Evening Standard, this is what the manager had to say to his players.

“Hugo [Lloris] lost the final and, instead, Cuti [Cristian Romero] won the final. For Harry, he missed a penalty, but I think he played a really good World Cup. For sure, they have to try and put to one side this experience.”

Kane captained England till the quarter-finals this year. The 29-year-old scored two and registered three assists, but could not help his side beat France in the last eight as they lost the game 2-1.

The Spurs striker scored the first penalty but skied his second which could have levelled the score. One of the favourites to win the tournament, the Three Lions had to return home earlier than expected.

Lloris, on the other hand, led his side till the final. The 35-year-old did the best he could as Argentina beat the French 4-2 on penalties after the game ended 3-3 with Kylian Mbappe scoring a hat-trick.

It was likely the keeper’s last tournament, having led his side to victory in Russia four years back. He fell short at the final huddle this time and fans will hope that he can put this heart-break behind him before the second half of the season resumes.

Cristian Romero will come back a very happy man as he featured in the games for Argentina, helping them win the World Cup for the third time in their history. However, it will be wise for the 24-year-old to continue with the same enthusiasm that he showed in Qatar and help us win a silverware this season.
