Tottenham star Harry Kane was targeted with chants of "you let your country down" from brutal Brentford fans.
Kane lined up for his first match since missing his penalty for England against France, which would have kept their World Cup hopes alive in the quarter-final, as Spurs returned to Premier League action against the Bees at the Gtech Community Stadium.
The home fans were quick to remind the striker of his mishap in the first half, which also saw the visitors fall one behind courtesy of Vitaly Janelt, before Ivan Toney doubled the lead after the break.

But Kane got the last laugh over the Brentford faithful, scoring a header which kickstarted a comeback completed six minutes later by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, with the match finishing 2-2.
The chant divided opinion amongst the football community. One fan tweeted: "Anyone singing 'you let your country down' at England players today should receive an instant life ban."
Another wrote: "Don't care which club they play for, I really don't like the 'you let your country down' stuff."
What do you make of the chant? Let us know in the comments section.
And The Times journalist Henry Winter posted: "Harry Kane’s never let his country down. He’s captain, a model pro and easily the best English striker around atm. He’s just equalled Rooney’s #ENG goal record of 53 (from 80 games). He also helps fund facilities and coaching for kids. Kane does a lot for his country."
But others saw it as light-hearted banter. One commented: "Fans wind up opposing players. Stay tuned for the latest on water being wet." A second echoed: "Home fans singing towards an opposing player, shock horror."
While a third argued: "He missed a penalty at the World Cup that cost his team the game. That's what the chants are referring to, nothing else. It's football tribalism at it's peak, and there's nothing wrong with it."
