Harry Kane has taken to Twitter this afternoon to reflect on England’s Euro 2020 final defeat.
Kane led out his Three Lions side at Wembley last night in a clash against Italy where there was overriding hope that England could be about to win their first major trophy since 1966.
Italy were unbeaten in 33 matches before coming into the final and it looked as if it England’s name was written in the stars when Luke Shaw gave them the perfect start after two minutes.
The Italian’s dominated proceedings in the second half and got their reward when Leonardo Bonucci reacted quickest goalkeeper Jordan Pickford turned Marco Verratti’s header on to a post.
Penalty heartbreak was once again England’s agony, with Kane admitting on Twitter that the pain of the final loss is going to hurt for some time but promised to regroup ahead of next year’s World Cup.
Kane came into the tournament with intense speculation over his future at Tottenham with Sky Sports claiming that he has reiterated his desire to leave North London this summer.
Last night hurts. It’ll hurt for a long time. But we’ve come so far and broken down so many barriers that this is not the end. We win together, lose together and will regroup together for the World Cup. Thanks for all your support this summer. pic.twitter.com/kUfW3zq2mn
