Harry Kane is Taking an Awful Lot of Stick For His Performance Against Croatia

Harry Kane is Taking an Awful Lot of Stick For His Performance Against Croatia

England‘s World Cup dream was ended in Moscow earlier tonight when Croatia managed to edge them out in a tense semi-final – and it appears Harry Kane is taking the brunt of the criticism following the exit.

Gareth Southgate’s side went into the encounter as favourites to reach Sunday’s final against France, and looked nailed on to do so after a brilliant first-half performance saw them 1-0 ahead at the break.

But Kane somehow managed to squander a gilt-edged opportunity to make it 2-0, and in the end it came back to haunt England in extra-time.

Ivan Perišić equalised to force extra-time, and Juventus striker Mario Mandžukić delivered the crushing blow with just 12 minutes to go, and Kane’s glaring miss began to look more and more crucial.

All in all, Kane didn’t play well all night, and after enjoying a string tournament, the Spurs forward is going home taking a boat-load of stick from his own supporters:

Does Kane really deserve this level of criticism? Was he really that bad?
