Hold tight, Harry Kane has yet to shine for England

By Harry Hotspur -

Harry Kane is this World Cup’s stalking horse. Sure, no goals as yet, just the one assist not to mention looking every inch like a player that is struggling to shake off a long, cold Premier League season, yet the Spurs ace is through the Group stages and our prediction is that the best is yet to come from the England captain.

This World Cup has been very much like most others. For all the big headlines, these tournaments are routinely less than showstopping until the very final furlongs. England faces Senegal this coming Sunday and one might hope that Kane is training very lightly with any luck, getting his head in the right space by immersing himself in the virtual world like https://gamesacademy.pl/en/. Kane made a widely celebrated appearance on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show, where Fallon revealed he was already a fan of Kane, as he claimed he used him on the video game FIFA (soon to be called EA Sports FC). “I play you, you’re my guy. So I just want to say thank you for all the wins!”. The A-Listers were spotted enjoying a glass of stout together after the show.

Domestically, the Spurs ace has 19 goals in all competitions which suggest to even the most jaundiced football fan that talk of ‘resting’ the Englishman is frankly nonsensical. Yes, fundamental concerns exist in respect of the way that both club and country are set up in terms of where Kane fits in. The 29-year-old, whilst a conventional striker has found himself adopting a somewhat deeper role in recent times, and that has been the case again under Gareth Southgate‘s tutelage.

For Kane to have a good World Cup, as opposed to a useful one, there will need to be goals, surely? Counterintuitively, no. The object of the exercise is to win the competition and if this is achieved by Kane providing a vital, albeit less ‘box office’ role, then so be it. After all, the Three Lions are blessed with an abundance of attacking talent, and in the final analysis, does it really matter who does what, just so long as success is achieved? At Spurs, defender Jonathan Woodgate scored the winner against Chelsea when we won our last piece of silverware. Did that cast a shadow over Robbie Keane‘s performance, that day? Of course not. It is a team game.

We take a view that Harry Kane, with the right mindset which has to date, proved more people wrong than it has proved right, will come good for England.
