Frank Lampard has claimed that there should not be any concerns about Harry Kane’s performance on Sunday, backing the Tottenham man to step up and deliver at the right time.
Kane came into the tournament on red-hot form, after winning both the Premier League Golden Boot and Playmaker Award for Tottenham last season.
However, the striker has already fallen behind the likes of Romelu Lukaku in the race to finish as the European Championships’ top goalscorer after he drew a blank in the Three Lions’ 1-0 win over Croatia on Sunday.
While there were a lot of positives about England’s display, Kane’s performance was not one of them as the Tottenham man did not look at his sharpest.
On the back of Kane’s lacklustre display, Jamie Carragher has suggested that the England captain is no longer undroppable and declared that Gareth Southgate should have taken the 27-year-old off earlier than he did.
However, Lampard insisted that he has no fears that Kane will come good in the tournament.
The Chelsea legend told BBC Sport (13/06/21 – BBC1 at 16:00 onwards): “I wouldn’t worry about Harry Kane, he’s our man.
“You know what, saved one today – the team played well and there will be a really positive feeling about the group. Harry Kane will deliver when the time comes.”
