Reacting to the defeat, Kane said, “As the captain and the one who missed the penalty, I take responsibility for that.
“I prepare [the same] if I get one penalty or two penalties in a game. I can’t fault my preparation or the details before the game.
“I felt confident taking it, I just didn’t execute it the way I wanted to. Of course, it will be something I have to live with and take on the chin.”
