Neville says Harry Kane carried injury

Neville says Harry Kane carried injury

Kane, who scored six goals in Russian Federation to equal Gary Lineker's record for England strikes at a single World Cup, struggled as Gareth Southgate's side slipped to a 2-1 extra-time defeat at the Luzhniki Stadium that ended their hopes of ending over 50 years of hurt.

If you've been following the World Cup, particularly England's performance in it, perhaps you've heard the chant: "It's coming home, it's coming, football's coming home". "We have had a fantastic journey, further than we thought", he added. It's been great to get to this stage, but we wanted to go on and win it.

"I'm proud to make ex-players proud and I'm sure it's bringing back memories for them".

England ladies also found themselves in the World Cup finals three years ago, only to be beaten 2-1 by Japan in the final game.

England had only ever played there once (a 2-1 defeat to Russian Federation back in 2007), and it seems like the curse / losing streak is destined to continue for the time being. We worked so hard.


Nearly 20 million people in Britain tuned in for the victory over Sweden, not accounting for the many more who watched in pubs and public viewing areas. "We worked so hard, the fans were incredible, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better".

"I'd be amazed if we didn't learn in the next few days that Kane wasn't carrying an injury since the Colombia game", Neville said on ITV Sport. "Everyone wants to finish the job and we're excited to try and do that".

Following a series of loan moves, he quickly debunked any beliefs he was a one-season wonder, and scored just 79 seconds into his England debut against Lithuania in March 2015.

"It hurts. I don't know what else to say". Or, as one of my British colleagues put it, the "absolutely miserable history of being an England supporter".

In light of the heartbreak, Prince William took to Twitter to commend the England team, writing: "I know how disappointed England must feel right now but I couldn't be more proud of this team and you should hold your heads high".
