England’s World Cup ends in disappointment as they were defeated in their quarter-finals against France at Al Bayt Stadium. Harry Kane’s late penalty miss effectively sent England out of the tournament
France took a 17th-minute lead when Aurelien Tchouameni’s 25-yard drive beat Jordan Pickford low to his right. England pulled level nine minutes after the break when Kane beat Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris with his penalty after Tchouameni fouled Bukayo Saka.
France regained the lead 12 minutes from time when Olivier Giroud headed in Antoine Griezmann’s perfect cross but England had a swift chance to draw level when Theo Hernandez fouled substitute Mason Mount in the box.
Kane had the chance to put England level, but blasted his penalty over the top and England’s World Cup dream was over as France look forward to a semi-final against Morocco
