Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur has lambasted England spectators for their disrespect to England partner Harry Maguire. In an international friendly versus Ivory Coast last night, the Three Lions prevailed convincingly due to strikes by Ollie Watkins, Raheem Sterling, and Tyrone Mings.
A chunk of the Wembley spectators, however, preferred to boo playing centre-back Maguire through the match. Kane resorted to Twitter to chastise the crowd for their poor support for one of his mates and to rescue his buddy. He tweeted: “We’ve worked hard to rebuild our connection with @England fans in the last few years so to hear @HarryMaguire93 booed at Wembley before kick-off was just not right.”
In a follow-up text, Kane explained how in reality that Maguire had been so wonderful on the field and left England with so many fond memories, rendering it even harder to grasp. He believes Maguire isn’t entitled to such a reception and he possesses full backing of the England team and must receive the equivalent from every England backer.
The fact that he’s been brilliant on the pitch and given us all so many great memories makes it even harder to understand. He doesn’t deserve that reception. He’s got full support in the changing room and should have the same from every England fan.

Maguire hasn’t been at the best of times with Manchester United lately, and Kane could perhaps be able to relate to that. Certainly, the Spurs attacker was booed earlier this season for numerous unsatisfactory performances, which were presumably driven by a wish to depart the club in the summer.
Over the international break, Kane continued to blossom for his country, surpassing Gary Lineker’s score and equaling Sir Bobby Charlton’s milestone of 49 goals for England. Spurs admirers, on the other hand, maybe charmed by Kane’s display of responsibility towards Maguire.
