Terry and Shearer laud Harry Kane after brilliantly-taken penalty

John Terry and Alan Shearer both took to Twitter to laud Harry Kane after his brilliantly-taken penalty during England’s dramatic Nations League draw with Germany on Monday.

The Three Lions restored some pride ahead of the World Cup with a spirited fightback at Wembley. It appeared that Gareth Southgate’s men were heading for another defeat after going 2-0 down.

But the introductions of Bukayo Saka and Mason Mount seemed to change the game for the home side. England scored three times in 12 minutes to take the lead late on.

Germany would almost immediately equalise. But the comeback showed that the Euro 2020 finalists still have plenty of fight in them ahead of this winter’s tournament.

It was Kane who scored England’s third. The striker was given the chance to score his 51st international goal from the penalty spot after Jude Bellingham was on the receiving end of a nasty challenge.

Kane showed no sign of nerves, dispatching the effort into the top corner with Shearer-esque power.

And that prompted the likes of Shearer and Terry to laud the striker on social media for the finish.

Harry Kane lauded after brilliant penalty

England go into the tournament enduring a poor run of form. However, they clearly have the quality to surprise many in Qatar.

They boast serious quality all over the pitch. You can question Southgate’s treatment of Trent Alexander Arnold. But the fact that a player of his quality is – arguably, understandably – not getting in the squad for tonight’s game says everything about the depth.

Players such as Kane are always capable of turning up on the biggest stages. The Tottenham star will have his sights set on retaining his Golden Boot won four years ago.

It would be dangerous to bet against him.
