It was an all-action start to England's Euro 2016 opener against Russia, but something was amiss.

Harry Kane - anticipated by many to be our top striker of the competition - was taking all the corners.
Like, literally all of them.

And people on Twitter were so confused. Why is one of our greatest hopes at scoring a goal not in the place where he can actually, you know, score a goal?
Kane is like 6ft2 he shouldn't be taking corners, he should be in the box. #Euro2016

I'm fine with Kane taking the corners as long as he's quick enough to get on the other end of them when they arrive in the box. #ENGRUS

Even ex-England player Alan Shearer waded in on the discussion.

Who knows what's going on. But hopefully Kane will be able to get more in the action, and the box, in the second half.
