“I don’t believe it.” Bizarre scenes between Kane and England coach

  1. Harry Kane had a dangerous situation in extra time in the England-Switzerland quarter-final. The striker collided with manager Gareth Southgate and fell to the sideline.

Once again, England disappointed at Euro 2024.   Although they managed to advance to the semi-finals, they only did so after a penalty shootout against  Switzerland . And the Sons of Albion’s performance was summed up in strong words by journalists, as we wrote HERE .

The English only impressed after conceding a goal, needing just five minutes to respond to Breel Embolo’s strike. Bukayo Saka equalised , and there were no more goals in either regular or extra time.

The incident occurred when Swiss Manuel Akanji  collided with Kane, sending him flying towards the England bench and advertising boards. This caused him to run into Southgate, who tried to catch him but was unable to prevent his fall.

The rather unusual situation was widely commented on social media. “I can’t believe Southgate just attacked Harry Kane like that!”, “I can’t believe Southgate fouled Kane”, “Southgate is trying to keep Kane from going down, but he can’t even do that” – some of the comments from internet users were.

The England captain held his thigh after the incident and was replaced by Ivan Toney . Kane was unable to help his team in the penalty shootout, but his substitute converted the penalty.

The Englishman revealed after the match whether he will be fit for the semi-final match. “Yes. Everything is fine, I was just tired. I had a cramp there. I tripped over water bottles and got cramp in both calves,” said the 30-year-old, who was quoted by The Athletic.

– The boss made a quick decision, of course with Ivan Toney, a proven penalty taker. He came in and did the job – he added.

The sons of Albion will compete with the Dutch national team for a place in the final. Ronald Koeman’s team eliminated Turkey with a 2-1 victory in regular time.
