World Cup winner knows why Kane missed crucial penalty against France


Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann believes he knows why Harry Kane missed his crucial penalty during England’s World Cup loss to France on Saturday. 

The former Tottenham striker has stated that Kane missed his second spot-kick of the match – which would have tied the match at 2-2 – as a result of overthinking.

The World Cup winner said via 90min: “There is far too much time passing with VAR check. It works in your brain.

“I’m a big Harry Kane fan. If he had the chance to put the ball down and take it immediately [he would have scored]. But time goes by and you overthink.”

Harry Kane’s missed penalty vs France

Kane is a wonderful penalty taker and showed as such when he slotted home England’s first goal to make it 1-1 in the quarter-final match.

However, there were many factors at play as to why he missed his second but the biggest was Hugo Lloris in the French net.

Taking a penalty in a World Cup quarter-final is pressure enough, but when it is the second of the match against a man who sees him covert from the spot in training with Tottenham often, that could have played into the overthinking theory of Klinsmann.
