At the end of the England-France World Cup quarterfinal, Harry Kanes missed a penalty, making a big difference between the two teams as the holders won a 2-1 victory over the 1966 world champions.Although the England captain had managed to convert a spot kick earlier in the game to equalize, his second spot kick would have become a nightmare as he skid the ball over.At the final whistle, the England captain was distraught, down on both his knees.In a chat with BBC, England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford would shield his captain from the broadcast cameras near.I am not one who thinks too much about it; I prepare the same for one penalty or two in a match.I cant fault my preparation or the execution before the match; it didnt feel any different.I felt confident in doing it, but was unable to carry it out the way I wanted to.I'd have to live with and deal with it on the chin of course. He also discussed how taking the first penalty impacted his thinking process when he stepped up to take the spot kick for the second time on the night.Yes, I am also someone who aims for one or two penalties in a game.I have a plan of action for each game.I cant fault my preparation or anything like that, it was just the night's work. Kane shared his thoughts on Twitter on Sunday about his World Cup debut and how it came to an end.This place is horribly devastated.We've given it everything, but it comes down to a single little detail for which I am entirely responsible.There's no way to hide it, it hurts and it'll take some time to get over it, he said, but it's part of sport, as Aurelien Tchouameni and Olivier Giroud scored for France in the semifinals against Morocco.
