Euro 2024: He’s not fit, looks gassed – Steve Nicol on England superstar


Former Liverpool Defender, Steve Nicol has said that England captain Harry Kane is not fully fit at Euro 2024.

Kane has not been his usual self at the competition so far as the entire England team has also been underwhelming.

Nicol noted that Kane might not be 100 per cent fit and looked jaded.

Despite this, Nicol said he wants to see the Bayern Munich striker feature in every game, adding that the England captain’s 70th-minute substitution against Denmark was probably not a tactical one but due to his lack of fitness.

The Scotsman said, as quoted by ESPN FC: “I can’t help but think Harry Kane is not 100 per cent fit. He’s just looked gassed. He just doesn’t look sharp. If I’m Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane is 80 percent fit, I’m playing him.

“It’s just that simple. I don’t believe that Kane was brought off against Denmark for any other reason than [because] he was feeling it.”
