Harry Kane hurting after Champions League and Nations League losses

07 Jun 2019, 10:35

After losing the UEFA Champions League final and the UEFA Nations League semi-finals, Harry Kane has admitted that he will be haunted all summer by memories of both defeats.

Kane came on after the break, replacing the injured Marcus Rashford who came off worse after a tackle from Denzel Dumfries. England lost 3-1 to the Netherlands in extra time following a 1-1 draw in regular time with the final two goals coming as defensive blunders. The England skipper also completed the full 90 minutes as Tottenham Hotspur lost out 2-0 to Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Speaking after the game, Kane admitted that losing the two finals will affect Spurs players, "Whenever you lose finals and semi-finals it hurts and unfortunately, you think about it for a while. I and the other (Spurs) lads will take this into the summer and the time off.

"It is important we try and refresh and recharge as much as we can, then come back for pre-season next month. It will still hurt. I will carry these losses over the summer. But it is what it is, it’s football, it’s a sport. Will it spur me on for next season? Of course. All I can do is try and learn from it. As a professional athlete that’s all you can do."
