LONDON – What if? What if England, reeling in the floodgates since their glory days in 1966, could pull off an unpredictable second World Cup title in Qatar? no Wait: Bryan Robson and Alan Shearer through the teens After all the brilliant England captains through the teenage years like David Beckham and Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney, if England were to finally win with that humdrum old goalscorer Harry. number?

Would it be a bit funny?

pubs, In ports of opinion such as coffee shops and newsstands, people sometimes sit and describe Kane as boring.

“I’m afraid I don’t buy the boring argument at all,” Peter Drury, the new voice of NBC’s poetic English in the Premier League, said recently on the highway between Manchester and Leicester. “I wouldn’t call him lazy. I’d call him steady. He’s a calming influence. You don’t have to be flashy, you don’t have to be a pop star to be a footballer.”

You see, you can even include Drury’s extraordinary pointers about Kane: he performs one of the most moving acts of humanity; scored goals The act of scoring goals is effortless. That’s 195 Premier League goals and counting (third time); England 51 goals and counting (second all time behind Rooney) and not looking at me at all.

Drury said, “I think that’s what we need, and it’s not to denigrate what’s happened before.”

Kane is what fans often say they want (quiet diligence), but often doesn’t actually do (in favor of glamorous scandals). But: “I think the fans in England have a real respect for him,” Drury said, “because he’s a little bit different from previous captains, in a way he’s not the obvious captain.” A really good business man goes home and doesn’t create a scandal that appears on the front page of the newspaper, not the back, and he does his job very well.”

ok In some ways, England was quarter-drowned in its fascination.

England 4 Germany 2 96,924 before extra-time at Wembley Stadium in July 1966, making England the world’s first sport to make an early exit into the quarter-finals. It has not played in any subsequent finals. It played in two subsequent semi-finals, Italy 1990 and Russia 2018; When it finally happened again, At 3 a.m. at Samara Airport in Russia, fans’ version of “God Save the Queen” seemed too small. More zing.

Led by the admirable Gareth Southgate and Keane’s captaincy, the team fell short to Croatia in the semi-finals but kept their promise and surged to the Euro 2020 final against Italy. The latter came with home advantage, but so far have been less stellar compared to a united team.

“I took charge on the first day. [in 2011]The former chairman is standing up,” said Ian Marshall, chairman of Ridgeway Rovers, the youth organization where baby Kane and former baby Beckham played. “A 17-year-old youngster who was recently signed by Tottenham Hotspur. He signed the professional terms on the back of a scholarship in the name of Harry Kane. So he turned. At first, some parents lamented that they had never heard of him. My point is, I don’t care if you’ve never heard of him…”

Kane thought of gifting a trophy, “Maybe even. [the kids] The belief is that one day they will be willing to do the same.”

“That’s how I got a little bit of backing,” Marshall said.

The moment highlighted Kane’s ultimate societal value, and inspired the Museum of London to create this year’s Kane exhibition as a lesson for children. If a young career fails in any way with age; After that, loans that deepened the anonymity were Lleyton Orient (18 appearances, 2011); Millwall (22 games, 2012); Norwich City (three times, 2012-13); Leicester City (13 games, 2013); ) “Yes, it’s difficult, obviously,” Kane told another former England captain, Rio Ferdinand, in a 2016 interview. But I came back from loan to them and said, ‘This is the season to fight.’ “

One of the first female World Cup referees in Qatar will live an ‘impossible dream’;

Despite the glimmer of greatness, it has grown: Kane, unlike any other captain, has yet to play for any championships, the Premier League title at Spurs since 1961; FA Cup Champions One Champions Cup since 1991; There’s less glamor there.

The nice thing is that Kane’s journey is small. From the stadium where the grown-up Kane worked, to the neighborhood where the kid Kane learned to work, passers-by could see him doing extra runs. small bridges Crossing the highway Down the strange wooded city streets, Along the upper and right fringes of London are about four miles beyond the small bridges. People lined up outside the stadium for a Lady Gaga show. You can start by turning now and looking across to the row houses of Chingford in a simple park behind the pub, with central London visible now and then in the distance.

There is a father and son kicking a goal in a park near a forest. Beckham (born 1975) and Kane (born 1993) both kicked it, Marshall said. Each attended Chingford Foundation School, located along a residential street that resembled the high school in the movie. Other stars at Chingford include Teddy Sheringham, a key player with a 24-year professional career and 51 caps for England. The place where most gangsters go (Cemetery), the famous gangster twins. Winston Churchill once represented some of the territories as a Member of Parliament. In addition, Like London, It’s a place with a mix of cultures and income levels; A program like Arsenal’s brilliant youth academy and Ridgeway Rovers is a place where the budget must be meticulously and chronically focused.

From there he greeted the two commanders of a laughable discrepancy. England captain Beckham was always seen as the team’s captain, and in the 2000s he was nowhere to be seen in the gossip papers for grocery shopping. Kane, the England captain, won’t even get bogged down in the fringes as the top goalscorer. . Beckham married a pop star, and Kane married his high school sweetheart. Beckham’s glamor reaches beyond the pitch and Kane’s glamor stops outside the pitch. Kane can be great and underappreciated; Beckham may be great and overrated. In the 2000s there was a Beckham walking tour around Chingford that you could go on. The idea of ​​a trip to Kane may seem far-fetched (so far), but it can be accompanied by tourists from Japan.

As the World Cup in Qatar approaches, the USMNT uses its platform to push for change.

“Harry Kane obviously didn’t build that level of fame,” Drury said. “He feels like a normal person. And maybe that’s what attracted him to the English public … he didn’t have that personality. He’s just one of us. He did what was necessary for him. He does it in a very quiet and self-effacing way.”

“It’s not the same thing with Harry,” Marshall said, “being famous because he’s not one of those people who’s going to go out and sell a brand of shaving or a sharp suit or whatever. I think Beckham knows what the word catwalk is, because he obviously knows the catwalk look. That kind of thing. Harry’s a little more down to earth. He’s from his sponsors. He’s paid a lot of money, but what’s certain is that the payments he gets are probably what you’d expect, sports companies and things that make sense.What would Beckham like to put his name on?

“That could be the difference between the two. That’s why Americans know it. [Beckham more]”

Now a loud team with not enough time to prepare has a quiet leader at the World Cup. Now, Southgate and Kane are a stable England team. Now a captain waiting for his turn, Drury said: “He’s had to sit on the bench for Spurs longer than expected and he’s had his moment.” As Drury said, Because it is “highest for life”. If it’s vanilla, it’s definitely standard.
