    He scored a tap in, a header from two yards, three penalties and a goal where he was looking at someone in the crowd and where he didn't have the ball. He was **** against Sweden and cost us the chance of a world cup final.

    He's a bottler, a choker and a first class ****. I was just calming down and you've wound me up again.

    All his goals are from set pieces, except one, which was a deflection.

    But I don't understand, I thought that being the best goalscorer in a tournament, whatever the way, was equal to being the best player on it ?!! It's unfair players are not rated with the same rules.

    Nowadays best player = best goalscorer. Look at the Ballon d'Or. So with actual rules Kane is the Best Player in this World Cup.

    For the tournament not sure, have to do some analysis. Kante will be the better of those two though after he does a job on Modric sunday.

    Nail on the head mate, don't care about the media stuff generally and a sense of optimism is possibly a good thing. But I think come the next tournament we'll see a different side to it as presumibly we'll have a harder run in. Back to square one in my opinion.

    As I said nowadays the best player is the best tap-ins' scorer in the world. He also carried England to the semi-finals alone unlike Ronaldo with Portugal and Messi with Argentina. Modric and Kante have better players around them so they didn't deserve it.

    Surprised nobody has given Mbappe a shout his been thrilling to watch with his skills and runs. Just lacked them goals.

    Kane is a leathal goal scorer very clinical just always and always will lack that Wow factor.

    Everyone has been saying that England did well to get this far but I'm not convinced. We over hype our national team in ways are other countries do not. The final, based on the group and draw, should have been the bare minimum.

    Kane barely had any shots from open play. He played too deep and that doesn't suit his game. He needs to be closer to the other goal to be more effective. We have no creative players in centre mid. We missed a Lallana or a Wilshere. Lotus - Cheek should have played more.

    I'm annoyed because the country now believes we are better than the Iceland shambles but we really aren't.
