Kane reveals delight at form: It feels great to keep scoring

Tottenham WHL

The Tottenham forward is very much in form after his latest goal for the Under-21 side.

Tottenham's Harry Kane scored his sixth goal for the England Under-21 side at home to Croatia on Friday, and spoke to the Spurs website about his delight at registering in his third successive game at that level.

The classy forward found the net with an impressive diving header at the near post, and it meant his tally for the season is already at 7 for club and country.

Kane's strike was vital given that Croatia had scored an early away goal through former Inter striker Marko Livaja, and it set Gareth Southgate's side up to claim the win after Saido Berahino won and converted a late penalty.

The West Brom striker had linked up well with Kane throughout, setting up the Spurs graduate with an excellent cross from the left hand side, and his own goal ensured England currently have two young strikers at Under-21 level full of attacking threat.

“It was a great ball in,” Kane said. “I just put myself in the right place at the right time and managed to head it in. It felt great to score, although the game was obviously tough.

“They got the early goal which made it hard for us but we played well, I thought we kept the ball well and we were creating chances.

“I believed if we kept doing the right things we were going to get the goal. Obviously we got that first one and then the second, which was great.

“We wanted to win the home leg for sure, but we know we’ve got another tough game on Tuesday night.”

The 21-year-old will now travel to Croatia knowing that avoiding defeat will see England qualify for the European Championships in 2015.
