“The Committed” Harry Kane Gets Back to Scoring After Transfer U-Turn
Harry Kane scored twice on his return to Tottenham starting line-up as he hit a brace in Spur’s Europa Conference tie with Pacos de Ferreira.
A day after Kane accepted defeat in his escape mission to Man City, he was welcomed home with the pomp of a returning hero.
The stands began to rumble immediately his face appeared on the big screen. The noise quickly snowballed and by the time the stadium announcer reached for his mic, Kane’s name and number had been drowned out by a deafening, defiant roar. What a show…. fascinating.
On his U-turn, Kane vowed to give his all to Tottenham. And true to his words, he inspired Spurs as they overturned a first-leg deficit against Pacos de Ferreira to reach the Europa Conference League group stage. Within 20 seconds he was in on goal. That chance went begging but he was up and running shortly after. By half time, the stand-in skipper had put them ahead in the tie.
Both goals prompted that familiar routine-a kiss of the knuckle, a jump and punch of the air. Kane even had time to clap another rendition of this crowd’s favorite ballad.
With Watford due at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, Kane was withdrawn on the 72ns minute to save him for the next premier League match. As he left the pitch, the striker was left in no doubt that he is very much loved at the club.
By then, Spurs had confirmed their place in the next stage after stretching their lead further. Lo Celso’s delivery looked like a cross and it took a nick off Pacos defender Antunes, but the Argentine was credited with the goal.
This was a professional performance by Nuno’s side, as they already have won three of their opening four games scoring five times and keeping three clean sheets.
