Harry Kane is the best player on the planet

Tottenham forward, Harry Kane though injured at the moment, but that hasn’t stopped him from receiving praises from different quarters.

The England International is the second leading goal scorer in the Premier League this season with 24 strikes but it’s unlikely he will win a third-straight Golden Boot after Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah scored four against Watford to take his personal tally to 28.

However, the 24-year old performance this season has been instrumental for Spurs push for a top-four finish and their hopes of winning the FA Cup after securing qualification for the semifinals with their win over Swansea in the last-eight last weekend.

While speaking with Sky Sports News HQ after South Korea’s 2-1 defeat at Northern Ireland in a friendly on Saturday, his club partner, Heung-Min Son believes that Kane is the best player on the planet right now.

“Harry Kane is, of course, very important for England because he’s the best player in the world,” Son said. “This is football, so sometimes you get injuries, but as Tottenham, we need to play without Harry.”

Also, defender, Jan Vertonghen insists that his club partner is an all-round top striker and hopes that Belgium won’t have to depend on their clash with England in their World Cup group game to qualify.

“For me, Harry is one of the top two strikers in the world because he has all the ability,” Vertonghen said. “You can have a plan against Harry and he will find something. Hopefully, England and us would have already qualified (by June 28) and he gets a rest.”

Tottenham will hope to have their key-man back in time for their FA Cup semifinal clash against Manchester United on April 21st in Wembley.

England will spring a major surprise in Russia – Kane

24-year old Tottenham striker, Harry Kane has stated that the English National team will spring a major surprise at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

While speaking with ESPN Brazil, the England International who is expected to lead the line for the Three Lions in Russia this summer is hopeful about his country chances.

Even as he was quick to acknowledge that people hold low expectations of them though they finished the qualifiers unbeaten, Kane insists that they have learned from Portugal, who won Euro 2016 against all odds and can turn the low expectations to an advantage.

“It’s going to be amazing — I’m really excited,” Kane said of the World Cup. “Growing up and watching these things, I was just hoping one day to be there. From an England point of view, we’ve got some players doing great in the Premier League. We’ve just got to go there [to Russia] with a clear mind, play like we’ve been playing in Premier League and see where it takes us.”

“There’s going to be no pressure. Of course, there’s going to be some sort of expectation. But not having won it in so long, no-one expects us to win it. As players, we have to go and first of try to get out of the group, see how we’re playing, see who we get [in the knockouts] and go from there.”

“Portugal weren’t playing the best football at the time when they won the Euros but they found a way to win games and win [the tournament]. Anything can happen at the World Cup and we’ve got to be ready for it.”

When questioned which team his favorite will be to win the tournament, Kane answered: “Of course, I’d choose England! But I’m not saying we’re going to win it, I’m just saying we’ve got to be ready because anything can happen.

I am happy in North London but Spurs need to start winning trophies – Kane

England International, Harry Kane has stated that he is very happy in North London at the moment with Tottenham although he did mention that the earlier the club starts to win trophies, the better.

Kane, who had an astounding year in 2017 has always been reported to be on Real Madrid’s wanted list and his Manager, Mauricio Pochettino having seen how Coutinho’s transfer saga finally played out has earlier stated that Spurs might not be able to stop the 24-year old striker should Madrid come knocking.

However, the former Southampton Manager has admonished his red-hot striker to learn from Francesco Totti’s career loyalty to Roma and Kane has also responded that he has no plan to leave Spurs although he and his teammates have to start winning trophies to match his ambition.

While speaking with The Daily Telegraph after their 3:0 FA Cup third round win over AFC Wimbledon, Kane said: “We’ve been close in the league the last couple of years, but the aim of the game is to win trophies and that’s what we’ve got to try and do,”

“We’re still in the Champions League and the FA Cup and we know Champions League will be tough so the FA Cup is one we have a good chance in. We’ll be one of the favourites.

“We want to win a trophy somehow and the FA Cup is a competition we’re looking at to do that. It’s always been a fantastic competition and obviously there’s been a lot of talk over the years about people resting players but that’s just the nature of the game now – there are so many games and squads are so good, you can rest players, so for us whatever the gaffer chooses we’ll be ready to play.

“I think this year especially with the league, kind of being out of contention – of course, we want to finish in the top four, but there’s a chance for us to win a competition so we’ll see.

“Obviously once the Champions League starts there’s going to be a lot of games, but I think we’ve got a good enough squad to rotate like we did at the weekend, not everyone but a few here and there and get the job done.”

Former England Manager believes Spurs style suits Harry Kane perfectly

Former England Manager, Steve McClaren has said that record-breaking striker, Harry Kane is playing exceptionally well because the team style suits him perfectly. He continued that he expects him to keep his incredible goalscoring form in 2018 so far he remains in Tottenham.

Kane had a phenomenal 2017 as he surpassed superstars, Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo to end the year as the top scorer in Europe with 56goals. That will be the first time in 8 years that neither Messi nor Ronaldo will not claim that feat. He also went on to set a new premier league record after smashing Alan Shearer 22-year record of the highest goals in a calendar year with 39 goals.

If the England International can keep this scoring record it is certain that he will stroll into any team in the world. However, McClaren believes that he is only playing this well because of the structure of the Spurs team.

While speaking with Sky Sports, the former Nottingham Forest boss said: “What he is doing at the present moment is more than impressive, it is phenomenal. I think he is playing in a perfect team at Spurs. You’ve got to stop the supply to him. Spurs press teams, play around the opponent’s penalty box and I think Kane is ideal for that.

“He’s a poacher, a box player. He scores goals in the six-yard box and he’s got a great supply with crosses from Trippier and Rose the other side and Alli’s runs take a lot of defenders on from him, with his runs diagonally, and Eriksen also provides him with a lot of assists. I think he’s in the right team.”
