James Maddison sends message about Tottenham's Harry Kane after England's Euro 2020 quarter-final win
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has been praised by James Maddison after his brace in England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final victory.
Kane opened the scoring after just four minutes when he poked home a superb pass from Raheem Sterling.
Though England struggled in the latter stages of the first half, they were quick out of the blocks after the break.
Harry Maguire headed home from Luke Shaw’s free kick shortly after the restart to put England two up.
Shaw then delivered the cross for Kane to head home his second of the night on 50 minutes.
And substitute Jordan Henderson nodded home his first England goal just after the hour to complete the rout.
After the game, Leicester’s James Maddison took to Twitter, sharing his opinion that Kane is the best centre-forward in the world.
He also hit out at those who criticised Kane’s slow start at the tournament, stressing that “form is temporary but class is permanent”.
Kane won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup as England finished fourth in the tournament.
And last season, the 27-year-old topped the goalscoring and assist charts in the Premier League, despite Tottenham’s disappointing campaign.
England will take on Denmark at Wembley in their Euro 2020 semi-final on Wednesday.
The winner of that game will face either Italy or Spain in Sunday’s final, also at Wembley.
