Gary Neville Thinks Gareth Southgate Should Be Worried About Harry Kane Ahead Of World Cup

Harry Kane will be a key figure for England in the imminent World Cup in Russia, but Gary Neville feels that Gareth Southgate will be slightly worried about his star man ahead of the world's greatest competition.

Kane is a man often stealing the limelight for his goal-scoring heroics, but the Tottenham Hotspur frontman has been in the public eye for all the wrong reasons recently, and Neville - a former England coach - feels that Southgate will want to see the 24-year-old recapture his deadliness in front of goal before the Three Lions head out for the World Cup.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville brought up Kane's ghost-goal against Stoke City, where the striker was adjudged to have flicked on a Christian Eriksen cross, and duly went to the goals panel to get the goal awarded to him, as he tries to reel in Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the race for the golden boot.

While Neville then progressed to discuss the controversial tweet sent out by the Football Association in regards to the fact that Kane was in Chris Smalling's pocket in the FA Cup semi-final between Spurs and Manchester United, and Neville believes that Kane and Spurs should've taken the sting out of the whole situation, and let Kane strut his stuff on the football pitch, and not come in for significant ribbing via social media from a sea of troublesome football tweeters.

Kane will be a focal point for England, if they are to progress to the latter stages of the World Cup, and having come in for criticism in England's woeful European Championships defeat to Iceland - mainly for his poor corner-taking - Neville believes that Southgate will want to see Kane end the season like last year with a hatful of goals to take confidence into the World Cup.
