Euro 2020: England defeat will ‘hurt for rest of careers’ – Harry Kane

4 min read

England's Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy will "hurt for the rest of our careers", says captain Harry Kane.

The Three Lions, appearing in their first major final for 55 years, were agonisingly beaten on penalties following a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes.

"We should be extremely proud as a group of what we have achieved," striker Kane said on BBC One.

"It will hurt for the rest of our careers, but that's football. We're all winners and want to win."

23:52And people wonder why a player as talented as Kane has never won a single trophy in his career?

23:51England may have lost but they can be proud of reaching a first major final since 1966. Italy were just a little too good on the day but no shame in that. Football was the winner this Euro Championship.00T
