England captain, Harry Kane has revealed who caused his side’s 2-1 loss to Spain in Saturday’s Nation League fixture at the Wembley Stadium.
According to Kane, referee Danny Makkelie was responsible for his side’s defeat against the former World Cup winners.
The Tottenham star believes that Makkelie should have allowed the late equalizer by Danny Welbeck, adding that the Dutch official lacked the “bottle” to allowed the goal to stand.
Asked by Sky Sports if Welbeck’s tap in should have stood, Kane replied: “100 per cent, in the big moments you need the referee to stay strong but unfortunately he has bottled it. In the big moments you need a firm referee who doesn’t get decisions wrong under pressure.
“Danny Welbeck stood there, David de Gea went up, he caught the ball but as he went down he fell on Danny, no foul or anything, and the ball dropped.”
He added, “It was a good game, a good test against a team that keeps the ball well,” he said. “It was difficult but we had good spells in the game and we probably created the better chances.
“We tried to press and play with high intensity. There’s a lot of stuff we can learn from but I think we can hold our heads up high.”
