France skipper Lloris backs Tottenham team-mate Kane to bounce back from England heartbreak


England captain Harry Kane will come back stronger from his penalty heartbreak against France, says Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris.

The Three Lions suffered a 2-1 loss in Saturday’s keenly fought quarter-final tie, sending Gareth Southgate’s side home from Qatar 2022 as Didier Deschamps’ men remained on course for a title defence.

Having converted an earlier spot-kick to level both the match and Wayne Rooney’s all-time England goal record, Kane subsequently skied another penalty over the crossbar late on, missing the chance to make it 2-2.

Lloris, who has played with Kane at Tottenham for a decade now, says he has briefly spoken with his club colleague, and believes he will pick himself up in impressive fashion when the dust has settled.

“I don’t need to go too much further,” he said. “We texted after the game. It was not easy to find the words straight after, in the changing room. I think he needed some rest.

“It’s a difficult time for the English national team and for Harry, but I think he can be proud of what he’s done for the team during this World Cup.

“In football history, many top players missed important penalties in their career – like Leo Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe.

“I’ve no doubt he will keep his chin up, and he will have Tottenham and the national team to shine [for].”

Kane won the Golden Boot at Russia 2018 four years ago after leading England to the semi-finals, and helped fire the Three Lions to the Euro 2020 final on home soil last year too.

He now has 53 goals in 80 caps for his country, leaving him one strike away from overhauling Rooney outright.
