Tottenham’s young strikers have shone during Spurs XI games in pre-season and after Souleymane Coulibaly grabbed our headlines last weekend, Harry Kane proved last night that he still possesses a great deal of potential.
Whether either of those players can build on that potential to forge a career at Spurs remains to be seen but both featured heavily in our 6-0 win over Southend United yesterday.
Coulibaly opened the scoring in the first half with what was described as the goal of the night before Kane doubled our lead at the break.
In the second half, Harry added two more strikes while a deflected shot from Andros Townsend and a header from Jon Obika completed the rout.
Both our young strikers are doing well ahead of the new season but what lies in store for Kane? Having impressed on loan at Millwall last season, maybe a similar deal is likely – although perhaps it should be at a Premiership side for 2012-13?
