Harry Kane responds to Kasper Schmeichel’s “it’s coming home” dig

Harry Kane has responded to Kasper Schmeichel’s amusing “it’s coming home” jab ahead of their Euro 2020 semi-final.

Later this evening, England have the chance to reach their first major international tournament final since 1966 when they battle Denmark at Wembley.

The two nations have both fought through five gruelling fixtures to get to this point and now, it all comes down to one game to determine who will meet Italy on Sunday night.

During his pre-match press conference, Danish keeper Schmeichel was quick to give an entertaining response when questioned about the “it’s coming home” mentality within the England fandom.

“Has it ever been home? I don’t know, have you ever won it?” 

After the journalist in question mentioned 1966, Schmeichel said: “Was that not the World Cup?”

It was a fun back and forth that, of course, was brought up when Harry Kane spoke with the media himself.

“He’s right in terms of that it hasn’t come home in this competition for us,” Kane said. “But we’re in a great position, we’re two games away. It’s important our focus is on tomorrow night and about us and what we can do. We know if we get it right it should be enough to get us over the line.”

Ironically enough, Denmark have actually won the Euros before back in 1992 with Kasper’s dad Peter Schmeichel playing a key role.

It’s all very lighthearted but in a matter of hours, these two countries will be gearing up for 90 – and potentially 120 – minutes of drama with a place in the final at stake.

England are viewed as the favourites but when you take Denmark’s resilience and determination into consideration after the Christian Eriksen incident, it’s near enough impossible to overlook them.

The Wembley showcase kicks off at 8pm this evening in front of more than 60,000 fans.
