Like the shell of a joy-ridden Ford Focus abandoned near the penalty area of the ploughed-field-pitch down the local rec, Harry Kane looks burnt out.
The Tottenham marksman enjoyed another stellar Premier League campaign in 2015/16, but has looked a shadow of that player for England at Euro 2016.
Kane was taken off at half-time against Wales, after failing to improve on an abnormally innocuous showing in the Three Lions’ opener against Russia.
Having been reduced to substitutes’ bench berths for the second-successive match by the Spurs sharpshooter’s primacy, Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy both scored after their introductions at the interval.
The clamour for the pair to start against Slovakia, audible even before their game-changing exploits in the Wales clash, sees Kane just 1/2 to lose his place in the starting line-up for England’s final Group B outing, while he is 7/5 to start.
