Ben Davies denied his out-of-form Tottenham Hotspur pal a potential goal at Euro 2016.

Having lost the battle of Britain against a team in which five of his club team-mates featured, Wales left-back Ben Davies might well brace himself for a backlash of banter when Tottenham Hotspur's pre-season training gets underway next month.

But the Spurs defender has another reason to worry about returning to North London in the coming weeks - the potential wrath of Harry Kane.

It has been a poor tournament so far for the 22-year-old Tottenham hitman, whose 25 Premier League goals earned him the Golden Boot last season, but he has not brought that form to Euro 2016 having gone two games without finding the net as of yet.

He perhaps would have scored in England's 2-1 win over Wales on Thursday if not for a certain Welshman, who inadvertently blocked his goal-bound header with the use of a hand. Adding insult to injury, no penalty was given, though it was unintentional.

Given how Kane's striking rivals Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge ultimately won the match for the Three Lions, it may be his last starting berth in the tournament, though a goal might have thrown his hopes of starting against Slovakia a big lifeline.

If that proves the case, Davies will have a lot to answer for when the Spurs boys get back together, but Kane might have forgiven him by then.
