St. Petersburg, July 15 (IANS) England captain Harry Kane said his team could have done better, following their 0-2 loss to Belgium in the third-place playoff in 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Kane, who lead the scoring for England with six goals, also said he regretted not having scored since the round of 16 against Colombia, reports Efe.
“Today showed that there’s still room for improvement and we’ve said that all along,” Kane said on Saturday.
“We’re not the finished article and we can get better,” the Tottenham Hotspur forward said.
“We don’t want to wait another 28 years for another World Cup semifinal. This is the level that we want to stay at now.”
Belgium controlled most of Saturday’s game, starting with an early goal from Thomas Meunier just four minutes into the match, and despite England’s attempt at a second-half comeback, Eden Hazard sealed the win with a goal in the 82nd minute.
In the semifinal, England squandered a 1-0 lead against Croatia to lose 1-2, with the winner coming in extra time.
