What I’ve observed was a player still super-confident: Gareth Southgate on Harry Kane post World Cup penalty miss

After missing a late penalty in the quarter-final defeat to France in 2022 World Cup in Qatar, England striker Harry Kane had said that he will be haunted by it forever. But given his excellent form for the Spurs, England boss Gareth Southgate doesn’t look worried at all. Since Kane has been on club business, Southgate says he has not felt the need to “interfere” with his proceedings and that he sees a player as hungry as ever to score goals. Kane has scored nine times in 17 games and recently overtook Jimmy Greaves’ record to become the club’s all-time leading scorer earlier this season and Southgate reckons he can replicate the same for his country. Kane could break the England record when their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign gets underway against Italy in Naples on Thursday night, fol...

Several factors behind Marcus Rashford’s hot scoring form: Erik Ten Hag

With Marcus Rashford on the brink of a 30-goal season for the first time in his career, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag allowed himself a moment of satisfaction. “I think I said it in the summer. The question came several times if I believe Rashford or (Anthony) Martial, one of them could score 20 plus goals and I said yes,” the Dutchman recalled on Friday. Ten Hag is not the first United manager to put his faith in Rashford discovering his scoring touch. The England striker has had hot streaks under Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but his inconsistency raised questions over his ability to be a goal scorer of the highest level. That was until this season. His winner against Real Betis in the Europa League on Thursday was his 28th of a career-best season th...
