Harry Kane - From zero to hero in 18 months

Tottenham WHL

After flopping at Norwich City and for the England under-21s in 2012/2013 Harry Kane is now the Premier League's in form striker.

Yesterday saw Tottenham Hotspur thrash Chelsea 5-3 at White Hart Lane with striker Harry Kane once again in excellent form for the home side.

Kane scored twice, won a penalty and set up Nacer Chadli in perhaps the best individual performance in the PRemier League so far this season.

His brace yesterday took his tally for the season to 16 goals in 25 appearances and six in his last six appearances for the club.

It is certainly quite a turnaround for the player considering where he was in 2013. The season behind him was a disappointment. He failed to score in the first half of the campaign with Norwich City, spending most of the time injured.

He went on to play for Leicester City in the second half of the campaign, hardly setting the world alight.

That summer he went with England to the 2013 UEFA under-21 European Championships. It was a disastrous tournament for both England and Kane on a personal level.

England lost to Italy, Norway and Israel in the Group Stage to finish bottom of their group and Kane failed to score several gilt-edged chances. His performance against Israel in particular saw him widely criticised and many felt, based on that performance, that he would never reach the heights hoped for him.

But 18 months down the line and Kane is looking like the brightest hope for England's future striker options, finding himself compared to both Teddy Sheringham and Alan Shearer, two of England's recent greats.

It has been a fantastic turnaround for the striker and now he is looking like becoming the player Tottenham have always hoped he would.
