Gary Lineker and Jack Collison react to Harry Kane’s heroics against Queens Park Rangers

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Harry Kane scored twice for Tottenham Hotspur against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road in the Premier League on Saturday.

Gary Lineker has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane on social networking site Twitter.

England Under-21 international Kane has been one of the best players for Spurs so far this season, and he was once again superb on Saturday.

The youngster scored both goals in Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers away from home in the Premier League.

Kane opened the scoring at Loftus Road in the 34th minute when he headed home an Andros Townsend free kick.

Then midway through the second half, the 21-year-old doubled Spurs’ advantage in the London derby when he found the target after latching onto a through-ball from Ryan Mason.

Although QPR halved the deficit through former Tottenham midfielder Sandro in the 75th minute, Mauricio Pochettino’s side held on for a 2-1 win.

Former Tottenham striker Lineker was following the match and was impressed with what he saw of Kane against QPR.

Former West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison was also following Saturday’s only Premier League clash, and he too was impressed with Kane.

The Wales 26-year-old Wales international was glad to see youngsters being given the chance to showcase their talent in English football, but he had one problem.

Victory over QPR has lifted Tottenham up to sixth in the Premier League table with 50 points from 28 matches, just three points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
