Harry Kane is not as good as he used to be and now relies on other players to create opportunities.
This is the view of former Republic of Ireland striker and toxport host Tony Cascarino after watching England’s three group matches at Euro 2020.
We do not know if Cain will know himself at Euro 2020
The Three Lions captain has yet to score in the tournament and will be required to live live on Toxport in Tuesday’s 16th round match against Germany.
The 27-year-old has won the Premier League Golden Boot for the third time this season after scoring 23 times with Tottenham, while the league has 14 assists.
He has also scored 34 England goals in just 57 games, breaking Wayne Rooney’s all-time record if he continues at the same pace.
Kane won the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot, but has struggled to make his mark in Euro 2020 so far.
After three matches at Euro 2020, Kane still has not scored a goal
Questions about his fitness and transfer spec rights were used as a reason for his declining form – Stryker strongly denied.
Cascarino now believes Kane has gone through a phase where he can create opportunities.
He told Weekend Sports Breakfast: “Harry Kane is not as good as he used to be. There was a time when you could create opportunities and scores on your own.
“I think he’s out now. He needs more of the other players to create opportunities that need to be taken forward anyway.
“There was a time when I felt like I could do something at any time and stick to the top corner.
“I don’t think he’s like that at this point in his career, but he’s still a great striker and can score a lot of goals and goals.”
Since making his debut in 2015, Kane has scored 34 goals for England
In the group stage, England kept three clean goals but only two goals came from Raheem Sterling.
There have been negative reviews about Gareth Southgate’s play so far, especially after the 0-0 draw with Scotland.
The Three Lions are still in the last 16. Cascarino believes that other countries do not take England lightly.
I assure you that other countries will be much more positive about England than the fans and the English media, because they will see and say, ‘They didn’t agree, it was hard to beat. “
“They have a good idea of what England can do, so other countries will be more positive about England than English fans.”
