England manager Gareth Southgate has called for more protection for Harry Kane from international referees ahead of England’s November European qualifier matches against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.
“Every time he plays he gets kicked from pillar to post. I would welcome more protection,” Southgate said of the Tottenham Hotspur striker.
Foden and Greenwood were both taken out of the last England squad after breaking coronavirus quarantine rules ahead of the UEFA Nations League clash with Iceland.
