England started the World Cup season with a great 6-2 win over Iran. Captain Harry Kane had two goal contributions from the big win win.

England manager Gareth Southgate gave Harry Kane the green light for the upcoming USMNT game. Kane’s fitness is important for the ‘Three Lions’ who are striving for glory after last year’s defeat by Italy in the Euro finals in Qatar. Despite fearing yellow, Kane has chosen a different route to protest the World Cup, and it’s expensive.

Harry Kane wore a $650,000 ‘rainbow’ watch to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar

England captain Harry Kane has a net worth of $40 million. He is also among the highest paid players in the world. A $650,000 Rolex watch is expensive for many, but not for the 29-year-old. He wore the rare watch during the FIFA World Cup.

Kane’s watch is Rolex Daytona ‘Rainbow’ 116595RBOW in 18k rose gold. One of the most sought-after watches in the world, it had 36 baguette-cut rainbow sapphires and 56 brilliant-cut diamonds.

The retail price of the watch is $135,85,000 but the market price has risen to $650,000. It was first released in 2012 and has grown in popularity over the past decade. It wasn’t the most coveted watch when it was launched, but it is one of the most coveted Rolex watches today.

However, the importance of the clock here is triple, considering Qatar’s ban on LGBTQ protests in the stadium. Teams wearing the “One Love” captain’s armband feared their captain being cautioned early in the game. So the FA decided against wearing that armband. However, Germany raised their hands to protest FIFA’s decision before losing to Japan.
