England captain Harry Kane has vowed to ‘give it everything’ to honour the memory of Charlie Naughton who tragically passed away earlier this week while watching the Three Lions’ historic win over Germany at Wembley.
Gareth Southgate’s side progressed to the quarter finals of Euro 2020 following a 2-0 win, during which Kane scored his long-awaited first goal of the tournament and ensuring a nerve-shredding final few minutes was avoided.
While the rest of the nation was reveling in the celebrations, paramedics worked for three hours to try and bring Naughton back to life but the Chelsea fan ultimately passed away aged just 29.
Ahead of today’s match against Ukraine in Rome, Kane wrote on Twitter: ‘I’m so sorry to hear about Charlie passing away – my thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends.
‘We will give it everything today and for the rest of the tournament for fans like Charlie. RIP Charlie Naughton.’
