Euro 2020: Alan Shearer tells Southgate player to start for England against Czech Republic..
Newcastle United legend, Alan Shearer, has told England manager, Gareth Southgate the name of player that should start their final Euro 2020 Group D tie against Czech Republic on Tuesday.
According to Shearer, Southgate should start captain Harry Kane against Czech Republic amid his disappointing start to Euro 2020.
Kane was hooked off by Southgate in the dour 0-0 draw against Scotland on Friday, despite the Three Lions chasing a goal.
Southgate also substituted the striker in England’s opening win against Croatia – another match where he struggled to make an impact.
“The question will be asked,” Shearer told the BBC.
“There is no doubt about it: Harry Kane will and should start the next game.
“Forget about leaving your captain and your leader out. We know what he can do, we know what a good player he is. One chance and it’s in the back of the net.”
He added, “I understood the way he played against Croatia and having those players in there because England lost that semi-final in 2018 because they got bossed, they got the runaround in midfield.”
