Germany midfielder Thomas Muller has mentioned Harry Kane’s goal drought for England and is hopeful that Tottenham striker’s poor form at Euro 2020 continues a little while longer.
The Three Lions finished top of Group D and will take on
in their Euro 2020 last-16 tie.
But despite qualifying for the knockout stages as the first team, there have been concerns over
’s form, with the 27-year-old only registering his first shot on target against the
talisman came into the tournament following a formidable season in the Premier League with Spurs as he topped the goals (23) and assist (14) table but has failed to impress so far.
And Germany playmaker
is hoping that Kane’s inconsistency in front of the goal continues when both sides meet each other.
"Great strikers are the best at being patient,"
Muller told a news conference
"A striker is always waiting for his chances. He usually has the least contact with the ball, but the biggest picture in the newspaper after the game.
"I don't know why he hasn't got into the final positions that he normally comes in. For us it wouldn't be a problem at all if the discussion lasts until Wednesday and we don't concede a goal.
"We're in the round of 16. We won against England World Cup 2010. That has nothing to do with Tuesday, but it might make one or the other feel good. We're looking forward to the big game with England."
Muller claimed he will be fit to face England having struggled with a knee injury during the tournament.
He added: "If I had problems I would not have trained today. The injury does not hinder me. I am experienced enough to deal with it. I am convinced that it will not be a problem for Tuesday."
