As stated by the vast majority of pundits English after the match against Serbia, the most important thing for England was to win. The Three Lions They won but they did not convince at all, and Jude Bellingham was almost the only certainty in a team that still generates doubts. For his game, in general, but also for the particular performance of some of his stars. One who is used to being on the positive side of criticism is Harry Kane, captain and all-time top scorer of the English National Team. However, England’s debut at Euro 2024 was not their night either.

Between Predrag Rajković and the crossbar they managed to get the only chance the Bayern Munich striker had in the 90 minutes of the match. After the first half, Harry Kane had barely come into contact with the ball on three occasions. The performance of the English ‘9’ was inappropriate for a player who has just had the best scoring season of his career with 44 goals, which led Jamie Carragher to make a striking and surprising reflection in The Telegraph: “Harry Kane is adopting the same role as Erling Haaland at Manchester City: not intervening outside the area and waiting for an opportunity. He has only touched the ball three times in 45 minutes. “That’s not Harry Kane’s game.”.

The captain of the Three Lions He finished the match with 75% successful passes (9/12) and 24 touches made, but being the subject of numerous fouls (six) and far from shining at the level that English fans are accustomed to. Hence, some, upon leaving the stadium where the match took place, appeared completely dissatisfied and dissatisfied, in statements to the Daily Mail, during his role in the crash. Likewise, the famous British betting house Paddy Power He even joked on social media about Harry Kane’s performance against Serbia: “It must be said that Gareth Southgate’s decision not to field Harry Kane in this match is paying off so far”.

Even so, the captain and ‘9’ of England himself, aware of the pressure that comes with a debut in a major national team tournament, played down the matter. “We knew it was going to be a difficult game.. Serbia poses many threats and has good players. They make it difficult for you, and I think we have dealt with it very well. There was a moment in the second half when we locked ourselves in our area and it was difficult for us to get out, but it was an important victory. We stand up to them well. It is good to get the victory and the three points today, to progress”declared Harry Kane in BBC One after the game.
