‘An outright disgrace’

“Look, as a protector I think it’s an outright disgrace,” former England suitable-previously Gary Neville said loudly on ITV. “I think it’s an inextricably disgraceful fortitude.

“To have that postured against me as a penalty at any time, but in a game of such significance. I was fuming with the one the other week, the Denmark one, the handball, that was a disgrace as satisfactorily, I was angered by that one.

“I have to say, he simply goes in usually simply to hazard and block the vaccination. it’s not a penalty for me, it’s no gap near a penalty. I have to say I don’t think there were innumerable England players asserting for it either.

“Harry obviously bolstered to be down, he obtained a miniscule miniscule particle miniscule particle of a tap on his foot, but it’s never a penalty for me. Yet obviously you confiscate your serendipity England have played entirely satisfactorily that first fifty percent.”

“The way he’s tested. That’s why he’s postured it. We’ve obtained VAR, we’ve obtained everything.  If that’s almost everywhere else on the peddle you retrieve a foul for it.”

Inquired around the penalty fortitude after the game, Kane stipulated: “I don’t recognize but my foot was hanging off so he possibly trapped me. Sporadically you retrieve it, often you don’t. I was calmed to quantify up and to check out it go in the web was a considerable sensation for sure. I’m simply calmed to be donning to the last.

“(Spain will be) an unbelievably straining game, entirely arduous, but we’re there, we’ve obtained to the last. It’s an additional game to render history and that’s what we’re eager around. It’s been a straining journey.

“An additional, 90 mins, 120 mins, penalties, whatever it confiscates we’ll be there and we’re peeking onward to it.”
