Former Newcastle United and England striker Alan Shearer has accused Harry Kane of diving against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The incident happened when Kane went to ground following a challenge from as Ivan Cavaleiro in the 82nd minute at Wembley.

Referee Stuart Atwell felt that there had been no contact from the Wolves player despite Kane staying on the ground clutching his leg and showed him a yellow card for simulation.

Speaking on Match of the Day last night, Shearer claimed that Kane was trying to earn his side a free-kick as they looked to get back into the match against the Premier League newcomers.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Maybe it looked to be a dive???? How about Mo Salah’s dive when he was touched on the shoulder.
    Also, before he dove, it seems another officials comfort Salah with many offside Goals.
    Take a serious look at the many officials who get decisions wrong. Another one today with Lukaku, like 3 yards offside and the official missed that? The ref should have blown that for himself without line official help. Hello!
    Off course, no one’s perfect. Ha! Mr.
    Shearer before you start pointing the finger on who”s diving??
