Roy Hodgson England Euro 2016
Fans were baffled by the sight of the Tottenham striker taking corners in Saturday's Euro 2016 clash against Russia

It was an encouraging start for England at Euro 2016 - but one of Roy Hodgson’s decisions left fans baffled.

Harry Kane was the man Hodgson picked to take corners, even though the Tottenham striker doesn’t take them for his club.

England fans took to Twitter during Saturday’s clash against Russia to plead with Hodgson, while others compared him to Louis van Gaal, who famously allowed Phil Jones to take a few corners for a short time during his reign at Manchester United.
