Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to share his idea ahead of England’s match against Denmark this evening.
The fitness of the Three Lions captain Harry Kane has attracted many headlines over the past few days with reports that Tottenham are furious with England for risking their star striker during the second half of Sunday’s win against Belgium (Express).
England boss Gareth Southgate has stressed that Kane is not injured, but instead was suffering from some muscle soreness (The Sun) and admitted that he was left confused by the reports in the media.
Lineker believes that the best way for Tottenham and England to rectify the issue is to allow Kane to decide for himself whether he should take to the field at Wembley.
Tottenham are back in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon following the international break when they face West Ham United in North London.
If Gareth Southgate wants to play @HKane then how about letting Harry decide? Club managers have always put pressure on players to miss internationals. I understand why, but it means too much to play for your country to allow their self-interest to prevail. https://t.co/AUAOvdI98O
