Eamon Dunphy steals the show with Harry Kane line on RTÉ

And it's hard to argue with him...

England have made it through to a World Cup semi-final, following a 2-0 victory over Sweden.

Goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli saw England comfortably beat the Swedes, as the 'it's coming home' brigade grow stronger and stronger.

England's talisman Harry Kane had a relatively quiet game by his incredible standards, but he was still the topic of discussion on RTÉ's coverage of the quarter final.

Darragh Maloney jokingly started the conversation, asking whether it was Kane's Irish blood that causes him to be so composed, and Dunphy's response is as witty as it is accurate.

Darragh: Maybe that's the Irish blood in Harry Kane... Letterfrak in Galway his grandfather's from.

Eamon: Yeah, well, we could have had him, but we would have had him back playing centre half.

And he's not wrong to be honest...

Although we're not cursing England for succeeding at the biggest football tournament of the year, it does make it a little bit more annoying when their star man was eligible to play for Ireland.

Ah well, on to Qatar 2020.

Dunphy was fairly spot on here, but he did have a bit of a blunder earlier on in the coverage, claiming that Ander Herera is keeping Jesse Lingard out of the Manchester United starting eleven.

He said this despite the fact that Lingard had 20 Premier League starts this season, with Herera only having 13.
