Chris Sutton says Tottenham's Harry Kane will be 'gutted' despite England win

England scored six goals against Iran at the World Cup yesterday but much to everyone’s surprise, Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane was not one of the goalscorers.

The Three Lions were absolutely fantastic against Iran. They completely battered them and deservedly picked up the win, but Chris Sutton believes the England skipper would not have been happy after the game.

Chris Sutton says Tottenham’s Harry Kane will be ‘gutted’ despite England win

If someone told you before the game yesterday that England would score six goals, you’d be almost certain that Kane would’ve bagged one or two of them.

However, it was the 29-year-old’s North London rival Bukayo Saka who stole the show with two goals. Jude Bellingham Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish scored the others in what was a truly emphatic victory.

Even though he didn’t score, Kane was heavily involved. He picked up two assists, but Sutton still believes he’ll be gutted about the fact that he didn’t find the net yesterday.

He wrote in his column on The Daily Mail: “No goals for himself, and deep down, Kane will be gutted not to have got on the scoresheet.

“But England’s captain fantastic played his part by setting up Saka and Rashford for their strikes. Another commanding showing from one of the world’s best strikers.”

Every striker in the world is unhappy when they don’t score, and a world-class centre-forward like Kane is no different. However, there’s more to the Spurs man’s game than just finding the back of the net.

Over the last few years, Kane has become an incredible creator as well. The way he drops deep and feeds his fellow forwards is just incredible – just ask Son Heung-min, who won the Golden Boot last year thanks to his partnership with the England skipper.

England take on the USA next in what will be a really interesting game. The Americans looked really good in the first half against Wales last night, but if the Three Lions play as well as they did yesterday, they should be able to win quite comfortably.

Kane will definitely be fired up and he’ll love nothing more than to get on the score sheet.
