Defeat against Chelsea my worst feeling, says Kane


HARRY Kane says losing the Capital One Cup final was the “worst feeling in the world” but he is sure it will drive Tottenham on to win silverware of their own.

  The Blues lifted the trophy after what Kane described as “scrappy” and “lucky” deflected goals from John Terry and Kyle Walker, who accidentally turned the ball into his own net from Diego Costa’s cross.

  For Kane, a Spurs youth product, losing to one of the club’s biggest rivals on the biggest stage hurt badly.

  “I’m gutted for the players, for my team-mates, for the staff, for the club itself,” the Tottenham striker said.

  “It’s the worst feeling in the world – losing, and losing in a final on the big stage is even worse.”

  The disappointment was clear on Kane’s face as he begrudgingly accepted his runner’s up medal after climbing the Wembley steps with the rest of his downcast team-mates.

  “When you see Chelsea lifting that trophy it makes the fire in your belly burn that you want to be back and you want to be lifting that trophy and that’s what we’ve got to do with the squad we have,” the 21-year-old said.

  Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson has all but confirmed Kane will be in his England squad for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania and the friendly against Italy later this month.

  “It would be nice (to play at Wembley for England),” said Kane, who has 10 Under-21 caps

  “If I’m picked it will be a very proud moment. But I’ve just got to keep focused on the games ahead and trying to do my best for Tottenham Hotspur, and if I’m picked then obviously I’ll be delighted.”
