With a successful penalty kick, Harry Kane had brought his team even and matched Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England.

When he had a late opportunity to make it 2-2, he then blasted the second penalty over the crossbar.

Harry Kane received consolation from England boss Gareth Southgate following the final whistle.

“I’m not someone who thinks too much about it; I prepare the same whether I get one penalty or two penalties in a game.

“I can’t fault my preparation or the detail before the game; it didn’t feel any different. I felt confident taking it but didn’t execute it the way I wanted to,” Kane said.
