Kane was substituted in the 74th minute and replaced by Marcus Rashford as the Three Lions skipper labored for most of the match and failed to manage a single effort on target.The limp showing was the second from Kane at this summer’s Euros after he was also disappointing in the opening game victory over Croatia. “England completely lacking in creativity and a willingness to take risks.” 10 – Harry Kane had just 10 touches in the first half; the fewest of any player in the match, while just one was in Scotland's box and the England forward completed just two of five passes attempted.

England fans voiced concerns over the form of key man Harry Kane after the Spurs striker put in another woeful display in the 0-0 draw against Scotland in their Euro 2020 Group D meeting. Can’t wait for all the Kane pieces!”Not creating chances for Kane is about others not him.The problem in the two games is he doesn’t look fit or he’s tired at the end of a season. Can’t wait for all the Kane pieces! #ENGSCO— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) June 18, 2021England pressed towards the end of the game but were fortunate on several occasions not to go behind.Jordan Pickford saved well from Stephen O’Donnell, before Che Adams slashed the ball wide when well-placed inside the final 15 minutes.Three Lions defender Reece James was also called on to head the ball off his line as Lyndon Dykes sent an effort goalwards and England lived dangerously. #ENG#EURO2020pic.twitter.com/hDwf3F7wGf— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 18, 2021Former England and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher also defended the 27-year-old. “Not creating chances for Kane is about others not him,” he wrote.”The problem in the two games is he doesn’t look fit or he’s tired at the end of a season. England looked flat across the park against a fired-up Scotland, who ended the game with more efforts on target than the hosts.READ MORE: Dire England held by fired-up Scots at Euro 2020 as Southgate’s men stutter at WembleyMuch of the reaction online focused on Kane, who had been expected to be his team’s main goal threat this summer – just as he was at the World Cup three years ago.“Kane the worst player on the pitch,” wrote one fan.Harry Kane, for the 2nd game in a row, is by far the worst player on the pitch!#ENG#ENGSCO#EURO2020— Laurenz Vescoli ⭐️⭐️ (@Laus1507) June 18, 2021Harry Kane still hasn’t had a shot on target at #EURO2020#ENG#SCOpic.twitter.com/G64EmGGWUR— Goal (@goal) June 18, 2021“Kane wants to leave Spurs so badly he driving his own price down,” added another, referring to the England man’s desire to leave his club this summer.“Kane looked well off the pace,” added another observer, while football writer Jonathan Liew asked mockingly: “Is Kane actually wearing his golden boot?”It wasn’t just Kane who was coming in for flak.England manager Gareth Southgate was accused of getting his tactics wrong by deploying both Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips in what looked like deep-lying positions.That meant a lack of creativity moving forward, with an increasing clamor from fans to see Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish – who was finally introduced for the disappointing Phil Foden in the 63rd minute.Even that failed to spark England as Scotland claimed a deserved point in what was the 115th meeting between the two nations.The moment every #ENG fan was asking for. “I said this after the Croatia game & got a bit of stick but it was the same tonight.

Reece James was called on to save his team. Only 20, but running the show…— Mark Ogden (@MarkOgden_) June 18, 2021After Kane looked badly out of sorts in the first half, he wasn’t much better in the second and scuffed a shot which was blocked by Grant Hanley when the England man could have done better. However, some refused to blame the Spurs striker for the shortcomings, saying it was an issue of service to him from elsewhere on the pitch.Harry Kane will get more criticism, but the service in to him was almost non-existent.
