69-year-old Scotsman Graham Souness, who at one time worked with Liverpool, Southampton, Benfica and Newcastle, said that in the game of the 1st round with Iran (6:2), the head coach of the England national team, Gareth Southgate had to immediately replace striker Harry Kane after sustaining the injury. As you know, the forward, having received a painful blow to the ankle in the 48th minute, remained in the game until the 75th minute.

“He stayed down for a while, he wasn’t fine, Harry was careful to step on that leg. I immediately understood that it must be replaced immediately. It happened in the 48th minute, and he left the field in the 75th. He ran for 27 minutes with such an ankle.

I already wrote about this tournament before coming to Qatar and I think England can go far if Harry scores a lot of goals. I’m not sure who else can provide goals against strong teams if not him,” Souness said.

England’s next match at the 2022 World Cup will be held on November 25 against the USA team.
