IRELAND AND SPURS defender Matt Doherty believes that Harry Kane will quickly get over his costly penalty miss from the World Cup quarter-final game against France this month.
England played France in one of the games of the Qatar World Cup and were the better team for large parts of the match.
France took the lead early on, but England battled back by scoring a penalty. Kane slotted his first attempt.
The World Champions scored a second goal moments later when Olivier Giroud scored a header.
England battled hard and were rewarded for their efforts once more after another penalty was awarded to Gareth Southgate's side.
Kane, who took the first penalty and scored, took the ball and placed it on the spot with everyone expecting the marksman to score once more.
He did the opposite and ballooned his effort high over Hugo Lloris' and the goal.

England went out of the tournament with many questioning Kane's mental state after the miss.
Club action returns on the 26th and according to The Sun, Kane is already looking to get over his miss by featuring in Tottenham's game against Brentford next week
Doherty is teammate has insisted that he will be fine
"Harry is absolutely fine. We all know his character, he's one of the strongest characters we know, so he'll be absolutely fine," Doherty explained
"Yeah, he came in at half-time [against Nice]. It was unexpected. We didn't know. We're obviously close friends, so it was good to have him back.
"I think all players use the negative times as a learning curve as a way to motivate them to be better. I don't think it will be just for his case, I think a lot of people will be that way.
"For us, we want him to come back and be the best version of himself which he has been for most of the season so far.
"I don't think we've got any questions about how he's going to return. I think he's going to come back pretty good and I think he's going to score a lot of goals for us and win us a lot of games."
Spurs play Brentford at 12.30 on Monday.
