Barzagli names England’s most dangerous players against Italy

Former Italian defender Andrea Barzagli has opined that Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling are England's most dangerous players ahead of the Euro 2020 final and added that Juventus have lacked programming over the last two years. The 40-year-old retired from football in 2018 and will begin a career as a TV pundit with DAZN from August. He played alongside Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci for both Italy and Juventus for close to a decade and believes that his former teammates can play a key role for the Azzurri against the Three Lions on Sunday. “Leo and Giorgio feel the weight of responsibility, they are giving so much to this national team, they are a perfect defensive duo,” Barzagli told Tuttosport. “We play at Wembley, but if we take command of the ball, we can overcome th...

Schmeichel blasts referee after dodgy penalty call favors England

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has opined that referee Danny Makkelie made a big error in awarding England a penalty against Denmark in the Euro 2020 semifinal game on Wednesday night, saying the defeat is hard to take because of the controversial decision. The game finished 1 all in regulation time before Raheem Sterling went down in the box in the first half of extra time after appearing to have been fouled by Joakim Maehle. The referee pointed to the spot and after some VAR checks, his decision stood as protests from the Danish team came to naught. The ensuing penalty by Harry Kane was saved by Kasper Schmeichel before the forward slotted in the rebound as it fell to him. The game eventually ended 2:1 in favor of the Three Lions and took them to the final ...

Euro 2020 – England have found their scoring boots at the best time

England were the most ruthless team in the quarter-finals of the Euro 2020 tournament as they thrashed Ukraine 4 nil to book a place in the last 4 against Denmark. The Three Lions have been short of goals in the competition but seem to have come to life in attack in the knockout stages of the competition and this bodes well in their quest to emerge triumphantly in the competition. Gareth Southgate's men progressed from the group stages with low-scoring encounters with Raheem Sterling establishing himself as the key man for the goals in the group stages. They scored just 2 goals as they beat Croatia and The Czech Republic 1 nil respectively, alongside a goalless draw against Scotland. Harry Kane was not among the goals, seemed out of form in the early stages of the competition, ...

Kane yet to speak to Spurs about his future while at Euro 2020

Harry Kane has disclosed that he has had no contact with Tottenham Hotspur regarding his future as he focuses on bringing his best to the table for England in the knockout stage of the ongoing Euro 2020 competition. Kane's future at Spurs has been heavily speculated in recent weeks after he reportedly told the club that he wants to leave this summer, amid Manchester City supposedly tabling a bid of £100m. Meanwhile, the Three Lions captain has not been at his best in the ongoing Euros and has not scored since the competition began. However, he has not been getting the required service upfront. According to the striker, the two issues are not related and he added that he hasn't spoken to his brother Charlie who is also his agent and the club about his future. The 27-year-old sai...

Euro 2020: Who are the best players in the England squad?

Each of England’s players in the Euro 2020 squad is there for a reason: they are the best our country has. But who are the very best? Here is our selection of the top four. Kalvin Phillips OK, so there may be better players than Kalvin Phillips on the England squad when comparing all of the players’ accomplishments and experience, but new boy Phillips outplayed most of them in England’s first game of Euro 2020 against Croatia, so he deserves a place on this list. Right now, Kalvin Phillips is one of the driving forces on the team and we have seen him push himself beyond his previous limits. Gareth Southgate said his performance in the game against Croatia was “outstanding.” We agree. And we predict great things for the midfielder throughout Euro 2020 and England’s future internationa...

Who are the Golden Boot Favorites Ahead of the Euros?

The Golden Boot award at the European Championship and the World Cup is one of the most coveted individual awards in world football. Some of Europe’s best-ever players have earned this trophy in past tournaments. Michel Platini led France to their first-ever Euro’s title with nine goals in the 1984 tournament.  Marco van Basten won the Golden Boot as the Netherlands won their first international accolade in 1988. David Villa and Fernando Torres also finished as top-scorers in 2008 and 2012, respectively, when Spain won two consecutive Euros.  With a host of world-class attacking talent included at Euro 2020, there will be plenty of in-form strikers vying for this year’s Golden Boot. In a tournament that is packed with attacking talent, it may come as a surprise to most, but the av...

Guardiola and Solskjaer refuse to talk about Kane

Harry Kane's future at Tottenham Hotspur continues to be in doubt but the managers of the top clubs linked with him ahead of the summer transfer window chose to avoid transfer talks concerning the Three Lions captain. The Englishman has reportedly told Tottenham that he wants to leave after being frustrated with the club's lack of major progress in recent seasons. The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United are the English clubs who may be able to afford the striker in the summer and have been heavily linked with a move for him. However, when Pep Guardiola was asked about Kane during the post-match interview after his side's Premier League 3:2 loss away to Brighton at the Amex on Tuesday, he replied: "Next question. He’s a Tottenham Hotspur player" Manchester U...

Chelsea determined to win the race for Harry Kane

Reports suggest that Chelsea are planning a sensational swoop for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.  The England international is considering his future with Spurs set to miss out on the UEFA Champions League for the second season in a row, as well as the fact that there is no trophy to show for his performances thus far in a Spurs shirt. Spurs lost 3:1 to Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United in the Premier League at Elland Road during the weekend and are now seven points behind in the race for a top-four finish with just 3 games to go.  This is coupled with the fact that Spurs' qualification for next year's UCL is the minimum requirement to keep Kane committed to the project of the North London club. Both Manchester clubs have already been linked with the 27-year-old striker but ...

Carabao Cup triumph won’t be enough to keep Kane

Jonathan Woodgate believes that Tottenham Hotspur must start delivering trophies if they want Harry Kane to stay although he is not convinced that emerging as Carabao Cup champions would cut it. The defender in his playing days carved a niche for himself in Spurs folklore after he played a significant part in winning the club's last silverware via an extra-time winner against Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final. The North Londoners will seek further glory at Wembley this weekend in the same competition when they face Manchester City in the final on Sunday. Harry Kane is a doubt for the game and has not won any major honor since making his debut for the club and Woodgate says the club need to end the 13-year trophy drought and make more investment in order to keep their star man. ...
