“I’d be embarrassed!” Criticism of Harry Kane

“I’d be embarrassed!”  Criticism of Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur drew 1-1 at Everton in the Premier League on Monday night. Harry Kane then had to put up with the accusation of acting.

“If I were to do that on the pitch I would be embarrassed,” said longtime Liverpool pro Jamie Carragher in his role as TV pundit Sky Sports: “And if I saw my son doing something like that, I would say to him in the car afterwards: ‘What are you doing? Never do that on a soccer field again’.”

Kane had a little scuffle with Everton’s Abdoulaye Doucouré in the 58th minute and went down a little too theatrically. Although Tottenham’s striker was hit in the face by his opponent, who saw the red card for it, according to the experts Kane should not have played the dying swan.

“There is no debate about the red card,” said former Manchester United player turned TV pundit Gary Neville: “Doucouré raises his hand. But the big question is whether Harry Kane has to go down. In my opinion he should never.”

Kane put the Spurs ahead with a penalty in the 68th minute. Michael Keane equalized for Everton in the final minute. The hosts ended the game with just nine men. In the 89th minute, Lucas Moura was also sent off after a hard foul.

For Tottenham it was the second draw in a row in the league. With 50 points from 29 games, the club from London is currently fourth.
