No mercy. You’ve let your country down, Brentford fans chanted at star Kane

Star striker Harry Kane is still struggling to come to terms with the fact that England’s dreams of triumph at the recent FIFA World Cup ended in the quarter-finals, even because of his missed penalty. And now his wounds were further aggravated by the merciless chant of the Brentford fans.

At the Qatar championship, Kane did not convert the penalty at the end, which could have tied the quarter-final duel with France at 2:2 and sent the match at least to overtime.

But the ball from the spot kicked high over the goal and Albion had to bitterly give up hope that they would finally reach a major tournament triumph after 56 years.

“Obviously it hurts now and it’s going to hurt for a long time. It’s hard to come to terms with it. I’m devastated,” the Three Lions captain gushed after being sent off.

He returned to competitive action for the first time since the fatal failure on Monday, captaining Tottenham to face Brentford in the restart of the Premier League. And the fans of the home Bees had no sympathy for him.

“You let your country down, you let your country down,” chanted Kane during the match.

Of course, the Spurs fans stood up for the unfortunate, when they responded in chorus with the chant “He’s one of us”.

And they didn’t stop there. In return, they added chants of striker Ivan Toney, who faces 232 betting offences. “Toney, what are the stakes?” and “You’ll get fired tomorrow” thundered from the cauldron of Tottenham fans.

Both supporters’ targets responded directly on the pitch in their own way: Toney made it 2-0 for Brentford with his 11th goal of the season in the 54th minute on his 50th Premier League start.

Kane scored again a quarter of an hour later, his 13th goal of the season helped Tottenham to a 2-2 draw. The home team is on the tenth place in the table after it, Spurs are in the fourth position.
