ITV commentator under fire for disrespectful remarks after Harry Kane penalty miss

Posted by

ITV commentator, Sam Matterface, has received a lot of criticism from furious fans for insulting Harry Kane after his penalty miss.

England crashed out of the World Cup on Saturday evening, after losing 2-1 to France. The Three Lions managed to claw back a goal after going 1-0 down with a penalty from their talisman, Kane.

They almost repeated this same feat when Mason Mount was deemed to have been fouled in the box and a second penalty was awarded.

Kane stepped up but blazed the ball over the bar, condemning England to defeat and an early flight home.

While many at-home sympathised with the striker, Matterface took the chance to aim a dig at him.

‘We needed Gary Lineker but we got Chris Waddle.”

Fans took offence to this and hit out at the Englishman on Twitter.

Do you think that Matterface went over the top with his comments?
