Harry Kane has been criticized by his senior teammates

Harry Kane (31, Bayern Munich) has been criticized by his senior teammates.

“Gary Lineker criticized Harry Kane’s lethargic performance after the draw against Denmark,” Football London reported on June 21 (KST).

The England national team drew 1-1 with Denmark in their UEFA Euro 2024 Group C second leg at the Frankfurt Arena in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 21.

With one point apiece, England and Denmark sit atop the group with four points (one win and one draw), while Denmark sits in second place with two points (two draws).

England lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Harry Kane led the line up front, with Phil Foden-Jude Bellingham-Bukayo Sakho in the attacking second line. Declan Rice-Trent Alexander-Arnold protected the back four, while Kieran Trippier-Mark Gehiro-John Stones-Kyle Walker formed a back four. 스포츠토토 Jordan Pickford was in goal.

England’s first goal came in the 18th minute.

Walker won the ball on the right side of the field and charged straight into the box before attempting a low pass. The ball deflected and found Kane, who made no mistake with his left foot to slot it home.

England were lethargic after that. They lost control of the midfield as Denmark began to look to score more aggressively after conceding. Denmark increased the amount of time they spent near England’s box, and they put their weight behind their attacks.

Eventually, the Danes got the game back on track. In the 34th minute, Morten Hulman received a pass from Christiansen and struck a straight right-footed mid-range shot from a long way outside the box. The ball flew low and fast, hitting the post before finding its way into the back of the net.

In the second half, England’s performance got worse rather than better. Fortunately, no further goals were scored and the game ended 1-1.

Sky Sports in the UK released the ratings of the England players, and three of the four players with the lowest rating of 5 among the starters were midfielders. Alexander-Arnold, Rice, and Bellingham are all tied for the lowest five.

Another standout was Kane.

After scoring the opening goal, Kane earned 5 points for his work rate. His rating was heavily influenced by a seriously poor performance in which he only touched the ball once inside the opposition box.

This prompted Lineker to speak out. According to Football London, Lineker said: “If you want to press as a team, you have to start with the striker. In the first half, Kane didn’t press the opposition at all,” he pointed out.

“He barely moved at all. As the team dropped back, he dropped down with them. When he gets the ball, he has nowhere to send it because there is no one in front of him to receive it. I don’t understand it,” he said.

“To be honest, Kane needs to do better. His movement is too limited. He doesn’t penetrate much, but even when he does, he doesn’t get behind the defense. Even when he does come down to receive the ball, he comes down lethargically and ‘lazily’. This movement is not helpful.”

“A striker’s role is to score and create space. Kane has excelled at scoring goals throughout his career, but the manager needs to demand more from him now. Even if it was me, I would have expected to be told off by the manager if I played like this.”

His comments continued.

“When a striker is playing against three center backs, you have to get them to space out. When you come down to receive the ball, you have to fake going forward and pretend you’re going up to fool them and get the defense behind you, and then come down to receive the ball to create space. If we move around like we are now, the opponent’s line will not be shaken,” he emphasized.

“It’s the same in the opposite situation,” he continued, “Kane is not that type of player, but when he penetrates backwards, he has to fool the opponent by pretending to come down. That’s how you create space for the second line of attackers.”

“In Kane’s defense, sometimes when he gets into good situations, he doesn’t have a midfielder to come up behind him, so the bottom line is that the whole team is the problem,” he added.

Alan Shearer, who also appeared on the show, added: “When I was a player, as I got older, I needed quicker players around me. I still scored goals, 토토사이트 추천 but I couldn’t penetrate like I used to. Kane is in the same situation. He needs players who can create space around him.”

Meanwhile, England’s quest for European domination continues on Saturday when they take on Slovenia and Denmark face Serbia in their final group games.
