That was his fourth goal in three knockout games for the Three Lions, after a goalless group stage, and it was enough to seal a showdown with Italy in Sunday’s final.

However, his hot-streak came after he was subbed in England’s first two matches in the competition.

Another duck in the last group game against Czech Republic followed and that led to some questioning whether the wantaway Tottenham star should continue to lead the attack.

Now former Manchester United and Spurs star Berbatov believes the England captain can tell those doubters to do one.

Speaking to Betfair, the Bulgarian said: “Harry Kane has been excellent in the knockout stages.

“He received some criticism in the group stages but Kane can tell his critics to f*** off.

“Even great players have their ups and downs. Even when he wasn't scoring he was doing a lot for the team. But now the goals are coming.”

Kane’s extra-time winner came in fortuitous circumstances after his penalty was initially saved by Danish keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

But he reacted fastest to slot home the rebound and cement his status as a national hero.

Berbatov added: “The pressure on him with the penalty against Denmark was immense.

“You cannot imagine what it feels like to take a penalty with a nation's hopes on your shoulders.

“As a player you know that everyone is depending on you, even if you don't want to think about it.

“It wasn't a good penalty but he got a bit of luck.”
