Harry Kane finally scores for England at the Euros. West Ham cult hero Jimmy Walker posted a tweet about the Tottenham striker during the England vs Germany clash last night.
And it backfired…badly.
The Three Lions ended up beating the Germans comfortably. The 2-0 scoreline was a fair end result.
Things were very tight inside the first hour or so at Wembley last night, however.
Nerves were frayed up until the moment Raheem Sterling broke the deadlock for England.
Almost every single England player covered themselves in glory last night. All apart from one – Harry Kane. That was up until the 86th minute at least!
The Tottenham striker buried a header past the helpless Manuel Neuer and England subsequently booked their place in the quarter-finals of EURO 2020.
Harry Kane scores, Jimmy Walker tweet backfires
The 27-year-old was a passenger during the first two thirds of last night’s match. There is no other way to put it.
And West Ham cult hero Jimmy Walker highlighted that fact on Twitter. Unfortunately for the former Hammer, the tweet backfired for obvious reasons!
In fairness to Walker, Kane had been ineffective for 85 minutes before his goal.
That’s what makes him so good though. All he needs is one chance, and more often than not, that’s enough for him.
Kane proved a lot of his critics long last night. He kept working and in the end got his reward.

England need the Spurs striker to really step up now. If he produces his best stuff over the next couple of weeks, there is no reason why we can’t lift our first major trophy since 1966.
