Can Harry Kane, the king without a crown, finally lift the Euro 2024 trophy and break his curse?

England, led by Kane, advanced to the finals by pulling off a dramatic 2-1 comeback victory over the Netherlands in the Euro 2024 semi-finals held at the BVB Stadium in Dortmund, Germany on July 11. This allows England to aim for their first victory in their 11th tournament appearance. Moreover, they have successfully reached the finals in two consecutive tournaments following their previous appearance in Euro 2020.

England conceded a goal to Xavi Simons of the Netherlands in the 7th minute of the first half, trailing 0-1.

However, Kane calmly converted a penalty kick in the 18th minute to make it 1-1. Then, in the 46th minute of the second half, Ollie Watkins scored with a low right-footed shot from the penalty area, shaking the net and leading to a dramatic 2-1 comeback victory. Watkins scored a goal just 10 minutes after being put on the field, proving the keen sight of manager Gareth Southgate.

As a result, all eyes are on whether Kane, often called the king without a crown, can lead his team as captain and win the Euro 2024 trophy, claiming his first major title. England will face an unmissable showdown against Spain on Sunday, July 14, with kick-off scheduled for 8 pm (BST).
