Harry Kane

Tottenham’s Harry Kane speaks out after losing two huge games in space of a week

Tottenham lose to Liverpool

Tottenham reached their first ever Champions League final earlier this month.

Spurs would take on Liverpool in an all-English final, losing 2-0.

Harry Kane had been out of action since April with a ligament injury before the clash.

However, the forward would start in the final in Madrid, although Kane did not put on the best display.

England beaten by the Netherlands

Less than a week later, Kane was in the England squad to face the Netherlands in the Nations League semi-finals.

Gareth Southgate chose not to start Kane in Portugal, but he did come on at half-time.

However, despite having held a 1-0 lead, England went on to lose 3-1 after extra-time.

Two huge mistakes at the back from John Stones and Ross Barkley led to England’s downfall on Thursday.

Kane on losing two semi-finals

After losing a final and a semi-final in the space of a week, Kane has been speaking about how he is feeling:

“It hurts, it hurts a lot.

“Of course, this week could have been so different and as a professional athlete that is all you dream about, you dream about lifting trophies and winning games.

“So it will hurt over the summer, it isn’t something you can just clear out of your mind but I think it is important, not just for me but the lads who have had tough years, to refresh as much as possible with their mind and their body.

“Then of course it comes thick and fast and before you know it we will be in the Premier League again and we will be talking again.

“But it hurts, there is nothing else I can say. I want to win and the boys want to win and the Spurs boys want to win but it wasn’t our week. As an athlete you have to take that on the chin and the only thing you can do is learn from it.” As quoted by Sky Sports.
