Kane hails ‘unbelievable’ Palmer after Chelsea man nets first ever England goal

Harry Kane praised Cole Palmer for an “unbelievable season” after the Chelsea attacker scored his first England goal in their 3-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Palmer opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the second half after Ezri Konsa had been fouled before Trent Alexander-Arnold and then Kane ensured it was a comfortable night for the Three Lions.

And England skipper Kane says Palmer, who netted 22 Premier League goals last season, deserves enormous credit for the way he is adapted.

“An unbelievable season,” Kane told Channel 4 after the game.

“It’s never easy moving clubs as well, so to do what he’s done in his first season at Chelsea is a credit to him and obviously the team he was in as well.

“We’re very happy to have him and I’m delighted he got his goal there today.

“Of course we’re going to need all of our players chipping in with important goals throughout the tournament in a couple of weeks so the more people feeling good, the better.”

After scoring his first England goal, Palmer said: “It’s a great feeling, the first goal for my country.

“Everyone wants to score for their country so when it went in I was buzzing.”
