Giving the Team Its Lost Glory

The Team’s Struggle to Play at the World Cup Finals

For the first time since winning the trophy in 1966, England came close to playing to their first World Cup finals. This dream did not hold on as the team was knocked out by Croatia. The extra time goal that was scored by Mario Mandzukic ultimately sent Kane’s men home, after having worked hard to get there. Despite all that, the entire team still managed to perform in the event like heroes. Harry Kane contributed a lot to enable the team to reach the levels it attained. Kane was also named in the 2019 Queen’s New Year Honours list.
