There's A Very Good Reason Why Kieran Trippier Didn't Celebrate After Harry Kane's 91st Minute Goal

Harry Kane's 91st minute header sent England fans into euphoria not to mention the players on the pitch.

The England captain popped up in the dying stages of the game to score, securing all three points against Tunisia.

And naturally his teammates wheeled anyway in celebration, causing a massive pile on in the corner of the field.

As the players chased down Kane following his dramatic winner, Trippier remained on the pitch and never left the opposition half.

Why?

Well, per FIFA rules, one player must remain in the opposition half in order for play not to kick off. If all players leave opposition half - whether outside field of play or not, then opposition can kick off the game again.

Great composure from Trippier considering the circumstances of the game.

The Spurs full-back was employed in the wing-back position by Gareth Southgate, and his outing in England's opening World Cup game received plenty of praise.
