The Bayern Munich star has opened up after the 1-1 draw at Euro 2024

Harry Kane has blasted his England team-mates and claimed 'everyone's dropping below their levels' following their 1-1 Euro 2024 draw with Denmark on Thursday.

The 30-year-old opened the scoring in Germany, with the forward netting in the 18th minute of the clash.


Yet Denmark deserved something from the proceedings and earned a draw, with Morten Hjulmand's stunning shot from the edge of the box securing a point.

Kane was taken off for England towards the end of the match, with Ollie Watkins drafted on as his replacement.

The former Tottenham star wasn't good enough for the second game in a row.

And Kane has now fronted up, admitting that both himself and the rest of his team-mates haven't been able to play at their best.

"I think we're struggling both with and without the ball," he said when asked about the Three Lions making things difficult for themselves.

"I think the pressure in both games hasn't been right and with the ball hasn't been good enough.

"Everyone's dropping below their levels a little bit. It was tough out there, but we're calm.

"It wasn't our greatest game but we got away with a point."

England have been dropping deep when scoring at Euro 2024 so far this summer, inviting pressure on themselves in the process.

When asked about their tendency to let opponents play, Kane added: "I think it's something we've got to get better at.

"I think we're starting games well but when the teams are dropping deeper we're not quite sure how to get the pressure on and who's going.

"In the second half we tried to change a little bit but it was difficult.

"Credit to Denmark, they caused us some threats. Overall we've got to look back and see where we can improve."

England vice-captain Kyle Walker has also addressed the result.

And the Manchester City defender has admitted he couldn't label the performance 'fantastic', while calling on everybody to raise their game.

"We take away the point and we are top of the group - I cannot stand here saying it was a fantastic performance," he said.

"Collectively we need to know when to go or when not to go.

"We have to go as a full team and that is something we need to practice because you come to the knockout stages and slight things like that can cost you."

Kieran Trippier added: "I am very proud to get 50 caps for my country, but my main focus is the result - it wasn't there for us tonight.

"Four points two games and we know there is so much to improve on.

"We stay will calm, stay positive and stay together - that is the most important thing.
