Harry Kane insists he has NEVER dived after failing to win penalties against Arsenal and Newcastle – The Sun
HARRY KANE claims he has NEVER dived.
The England captain, preparing for tomorrow’s Euro 2020 qualifier with Kosovo at Southampton, hit back at accusations he cheated by diving to try to win a penalty in the 2-2 draw at Arsenal.
Kane, 26, went down under a challenge from Sokratis eight days ago.
The striker also failed to land a spot-kick after being upended by Newcastle’s Jamaal Lascelles just over a fortnight ago.
He DID win a penalty in England’s 4-0 win over Bulgaria on Saturday when clipped by Kristian Dimitrov.
Asked if he will ever apologise for diving, Kane said: “Never – and hopefully I don’t have to.”
And pressed whether he is a diver, he said: “I haven’t really heard much on that. I said after the Newcastle game it was a clear penalty from my point of view.
“I said after the Arsenal game, it’s a 50/50 one, similar to one we got given against us at Wembley the year before.
“I am someone who uses his body well, which as a striker you have to do at every level.
“On the halfway line it’s a free-kick every day.
“In the penalty box, you don’t always get it.
“It’s about doing my best on the pitch and the most important thing is about winning games.”
