Tottenham striker Harry Kane has failed to score at Euro 2020, despite starting alongside his possible future team-mates in the Three Lions’ attack. Manchester City’s £100 million ($139m) bid for the striker is expected to be initially turned down by Tottenham. Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has scored more Premier League goals than Kane in the past four seasons.
England captain Harry Kane could follow in the footsteps of Manchester City team-mate Kyle Walker by joining the Premier League champions. The England international has not won a trophy since his debut for Tottenham in. But he is expected to make the move to the Etihad Stadium this summer. He will be reunited with Pep Guardiola, who has been working under Jose Mourinho at Man City.
None of the three attempts on target came from striker Harry Kane, who has so faoked stale and a long way short of his best in the three games. He has not been helped by a cautious approach from Southgate; the flair players who have lit up the Premier League and Bundesliga have been held back so far.
Gareth Southgate’s England face the Czech Republic in their final Euro 2020 qualifying match on Sunday. Raheem Sterling was denied his first goal of the tournament by a good save from Tomas Vaclik in the first half. The Manchester City winger has two goals at Euro 2020, but is still searching for his first.
England striker Harry Kane says he is “fully focused on the job” after playing in his 61st game of the Euro campaign. He played in England’s final group game against Italy and could have played more but for ankle injuries.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is far more attacking at the Etihad Stadium than Gareth Southgate’s England side. The Three Lions’ defensive approach and unadventurous opponents are to blame for England’s poor start to the World Cup in Brazil. Kevin De Bruyne’s return from a broken nose set up chances for Harry Kane against Denmark and Finland, with one assist and another goal ruled out by an offside call.
De Bruyne’s passes are “just a striker’s dream”, says Kane, who is in the England squad for Euro 2016.
