Harry Kane gets skewered for missed penalty that sends England home: Best memes and tweets

Harry Kane won’t be able to live down missing a game-tying penalty in the waning minutes against France as England was knocked out of the World Cup.

The heavyweight bout between France and England was as advertised with the two World Cup contenders going toe-to-toe until the final second of play in the quarterfinals.

Kylian Mbappe and the French advanced with a 2-1 win that will be remembered for Harry Kane’s missed penalty in the 84th minute. It would have tied the game and likely forced extra time. Instead, the star striker blasted his kick over the bar.

England’s woes with penalty kicks continue to doom their hopes at major tournaments. Now Kane gets to join the pantheon of English heroes who fell short in the most devastating of ways.

Best tweets and memes after Harry Kane missed penalty, England eliminated

There were plenty of jokes and criticisms for Kane but many on Twitter also defended him.

After Aurelien Tchouameni put France ahead with a strike from outside the box in the 17th minute, Kane successfully converted a penalty in the 54th minute to draw things even again. The goal drew him even with Wayne Rooney for the England scoring record.

The English needed him to be on target again late in the game because Olivier Giroud scored a header in the 78th minute to restore France’s lead. Kane’s first penalty had been perfect. His second was anything but.

England will now head home to stew over the what-ifs of another tournament without anything to show for it.

The French will move on to the semifinals on Wednesday to face Morocco, who downed Spain and then Portugal on Saturday to become the Cinderella story of the tournament.
