Harry Kane full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur teammate Christian Eriksen

Harry Kane says that he knew that Tottenham Hotspur teammate Christian Eriksen was capable of his brilliant performance against Hull City in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been singing the praises of teammate Christian Eriksen.

The Denmark international playmaker was the star of the show on Sunday, as Spurs came from a goal down to get the better of Hull City 2-1 at the KC Stadium.

Eriksen was involved in both of Tottenham’s goals in the Premier League. It was the 22-year-old’s free kick which led to Kane’s equaliser in the 61st minute, and it was the former Ajax star who scored the winner in the final minutes of the contest.

Kane has now hailed his teammate and is quoted as saying by Tottenham’s official website: “I knew Christian was going to hit the target with his free-kick so I got myself into an area where the ball might drop, I did that and luckily enough I was able to put it in the back of the net.

“The winner was a great goal, great finish. We practice that type of finishing day in, day out at training so when he picked the ball up, I knew he’d have a chance and when I saw it hit the back of the net I was delighted for him and the team.”

Eriksen was Tottenham’s best player last season, but so far this campaign he has struggled for consistency.

However, on Sunday the Dane showed his class and quality. Eriksen now boasts a goal tally of four from 12 Premier League appearances, while creating 24 chances and having a 83% pass accuracy.
