ENGLAND fans are doing their best to see the funny side as they try get over Saturday’s painful World Cup quarter-final defeat to France.
Kane skied a late penalty over the crossbar for the Three Lions that would have made the game 2-2, having earlier netted perfectly from the spot.
It saw Wilkinson, who won the 2003 Rugby World Cup with a last-gasp drop goal, teach Kane how to score a penalty.
After the Three Lions skipper buried a perfect spot-kick, Wilkinson said: “No, no… you’ve got it all wrong.”
Wilkinson then proceeded to place the ball on a tee and smash it over the bar, rugby style.
He turned to Kane and said: “That’s how you do it.”
The confused football star replied: “You just put it over by a mile.”
But Wilkinson hit back: “Yes, but that’s how I won a World Cup though with England.”
Kane then lined up and smashed an effort over the bar, drawing applause from Wilkinson.
And devastated England fans, desperate for some light-hearted relief, have joked that the ex-rugby ace is to blame for Kane’s miss.
After the video resurfaced, one wrote on Twitter: “I blame Jonny Wilkinson!”
Another quipped: “This is why Harry Kane missed the penalty! We have to blame Jonny Wilkinson.”
Ans a third added: “Definitely blame Jonny.”
England football legends rallied around Kane after his penalty miss on social media.
The brave Three Lions captain admitted it will “take some time” for him to get over last night’s defeat.
He wrote on Twitter: “Absolutely gutted. We’ve given it everything and it’s come down to a small detail which I take responsibility for.
“There’s no hiding from it, it hurts and it’ll take some time to get over it but that’s part of sport.
“Now it’s about using the experience to be mentally and physically stronger for the next challenge.
“Thanks for all the support throughout the tournament – it means a lot.”
