With almost 60 years between their respective goal scoring England debuts at Wembley, it’s fair to say captain for Euro 2020 squad Harry Kane and Colin Grainger have something in common. Euro 2020 fans can book England Vs Czech Republic Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Former Sheffield United, Sunderland and Leeds United player Grainger made his Three Lions bow back in May 1956 in a game against Brazil, when he opened the scoring with his first touch of the game after just four minutes before notching a second goal in a 4-2 win.
And current Three Lions captain Kane, who scored his first senior goal just 79 seconds after coming on as a sub against Lithuania in 2015, surprised Grainger with a video call this week to check in on the 86 year old at his home just outside Huddersfield.
The pair then went on to share tales of their debut memories with Grainger admitting: “I was very lucky, but I do remember the goals. Euro 2020 fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
The first was my first kick of the match following four minutes and afterward, the subsequent one was around a short way from the end, when I got a header in. It was brilliant, good memories. I played with Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney, Duncan Edwards, Jimmy Hagan of Sheffield United, and Len Shackleton of Sunderland.
They were incredible, extraordinary players and I’m glad that I played with those individuals. Euro 2020 fans can book the Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
“I’ve got some good memories, but my favorite memory is my two goals against Brazil, that’s the one.”
And Kane concurred with that, adding: “When you make your England debut, it’s pretty special. I know that feeling and it doesn’t get much better than that.”
Like the rest of the nation, Grainger has been in isolation at home and unable to see his family in recent weeks, but he paid tribute to the care workers who have been with him every day, a notion which was seconded by Kane.
“I’m doing well because I’ve being looked after by the care workers well,” said Grainger, who was also known as the ‘Singing Winger’ in his playing days due to a secondary professional career as a recording artist, which saw him perform on the same bill as the Beatles in 1963.
Without them, I don’t have the foggiest idea how I would’ve done however we’re nearly there now.
“But I’m missing the family coming most.”
