Harry Kane may have failed to score for the first time in four Premiership starts but the young striker still dominates much of the headlines this morning. After comparisons with Teddy Sheringham were made last week, the England Under 21 centre forward said he would love to emulate one of his heroes and after we made a slightly light hearted suggestion that he should be in England’s World Cup squad, a campaign to ‘Get Kane on the Plane’ began on Twitter.
“Who knows, if I get a few more in the three remaining matches, then anything is possible because strange things have happened,” Harry told the Sun.
“Just look at what my mate Andros Townsend did at the start of the season. All of a sudden he was in the England squad and helps us get to the World Cup. You have to dream.
Those claims may still be premature but at the moment, the 20 year old is the in form striker at the club. Emmanuel Adebayor has been scoreless for three games while Roberto Soldado has been relegated to the bench after returning from injury.
Perhaps a more pertinent question than Harry’s World Cup chances is the issue over the three strikers at White Hart Lane with Roberto Soldado looking particularly vulnerable after Kane’s emergence.
