The Rivalry continues? Could Walker have passed the ball to Bukayo Saka for England’s opener versus Denmark?

Harry Kane put England in front in the second round of clashes in group C after good work from the Man City right back. But many fans are smelling foul play as Walker failed to pass the ball for Saka to score.

Walker nipped in ahead of Kristiansen after a quick interchange involving Saka and Bellingham. The right back caught his opposite number napping before advancing into the box and play the ball into a dangerous area.

The ball bobbled on it’s way through and fell to Kane who made no mistakes. Fans however believe he could have played an easier pass to Saka who was open and better shaped to shoot.

The two players have had to go at it in the Premier League for the past two years but have to put rivalry aside for the national team.

Other fans have come to put any conspiracy with that piece of action to bed, citing that both players have exchanged numerous passes since the start of the competition.

Old problems rear heads as England pegged back by Denmark

England’s lead, regardless of this conspiracy surrounding it -Walker failed to pass the ball for  Saka to score- lasted not too long. Gareth Southgate’s tactic of sitting back after going ahead reared up again but this time got punished by Hjumland.

A hurried ball out of Denmark’s pressure by Kane fell into a dangerous area for Hjumland to pick up and advance. The Sporting midfielder arrowed one from range, kissing the foot of the post as it beat Pickford to draw his team level.

England now have it all to do inside 45 minutes as they hope to secure early qualification for the round of 16.

To do so, they will have to let go of the hand breaks and go for the win against a well structured but dominant Denmark side.
