Surely one of the most significant events of the course of the Blues during the World Cup in Qatar, the penalty missed by Harry Kane in the 84th minute remained in the memories.
After allowing his team to come back to the score (1-1) by converting a first penalty, Harry Kane could have doubled the lead and kept the Three Lions' qualification hopes alive, but he sent the ball over the cages French.
Faced with Hugo Lloris, his club teammate at Tottenham, the striker used to stringing penalties like pearls (84% success in this exercise) lost his cool.

“I will probably remember it for the rest of my life, but it's part of the game, admitted the co-top scorer in the history of the English selection in an interview with the Evening Standard.
It will haunt me forever, but it made me even more hungry for trophies.
It's not going to affect me as a player or as a person.
“Proof of this is, since the resumption of the English championship, he has scored 3 goals in 3 games.
Yet when he returned to the Premier League pitches he was targeted by chants from Brentford supporters.
“You let your country down.
Ivan Toney (the Brentford striker) would have scored”, chanted the residents of the Gtech Community Stadium.
Harry Kane wants revenge: “I will continue to work hard to improve myself.
After it happened, I just wanted to play it back as soon as possible and get it out of my head.
I have to deal with… he admits to the British press.
It was a tough moment for me, but it is part of the ups and downs of our sport.
It remains to be seen whether the one who only needs one goal to beat Wayne Rooney's record has definitely moved on.
What is certain is that he will continue to evolve under the orders of Gareth Southgate, kept in his post after the World Cup, which he seems to appreciate.
"I'm really happy he's staying, I really feel like the job isn't done," Kane said of his coach.
It will be good to have another try at the Euros with the same team and the same staff.
Southgate has been fantastic for me and for other players.
Business will pick up in March and we will be ready.
The appointment is made.
