SEI137152255

Harry Kane says the England players want Gareth Southgate to stay and are delighted to have him as their manager, following the 2-1 World Cup quarter-final loss to France.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker similarly added that he would retake the second penalty and took full responsibility for his mistake, which saw England miss a second equalizing chance, saying it was “purely down to the execution”.

Kane also added that Southgate had not said anything about his future to the team.

“We love having Gareth as manager,” Kane explained. “We want him to stay safe, but that is his decision. I’m sure he’ll go away and think about it.

“We have a great team, great young players, players who are entering their prime and we have a Euro Cup not too far away. As much as this hurts, we have to go ahead and look forward to it.

“He hasn’t talked about it. I haven’t talked to him about it. As I said, we are now suffering and rightly so. He will go away and think about it. That is his decision. He will talk to his family and friends and make that decision. From the players’ point of view, we are very happy with the coach”.

As for the second missed penalty, Kane appeared to engage in a poker game with teammate Hugo Lloris after scoring the first, raising questions as to whether anyone else should have intervened.

“I’m someone who prepares to take one or two penalties in the same match,” he added. “So I can’t blame my preparation.

“I felt just as confident in the second as in the first, but it was 100% execution. Which is my fault. Obviously it hurts now and it will hurt for a while, but it’s part of being the captain and leader of the team. You have to take responsibility and I take it today.”

Kane said this World Cup was “really positive” but the team was understandably “gutted” with the manner of the start.

“It’s a really hard night to take. I am devastated, the team is devastated,” she said. “We had full confidence that we could achieve something special in this World Cup, but it all came down to small details. I thought, on the night, we had better chances and better spells in the game.

“I think it’s been a really positive tournament. Of course, it ended now in the quarterfinals and we felt that we could have done more. If you look at the performances and the way the team has been, it’s been exciting to watch. I think we have a really bright future.

“We love having Gareth as a coach. We want him to stay safe, but that is his decision. I’m sure he’ll go away and think about it. We have a great team, great young players, players who are entering their prime and we have a Euro Cup not far away. As much as this hurts, we have to go ahead and wait for that.”
