Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Ex-defender on point everyone needs to remember about Kane

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Tottenham defender Paul Stalteri has told talkSPORT the important thing to remember about Harry Kane.

Kane couldn’t back up his first goal for the England senior side against Lithuania last night against Italy, but he’s in majestic form at club level.

The former Spurs player has suggested that it’s the number of league goals he’s scored this season, which is worth focusing on.

“The key to really look into is his numbers in the league and how many league goals he has,” he said.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Andros Townsend came off the bench to score the equaliser for England in their 1-1 draw against Italy, as reported by the Guardian.

The Spurs winger was criticised when he was called up to Hodgson’s squad due to the inconsistency of his performances.

However, he showed great skill and determination last night to come off the bench and produce a stunning effort.

The man himself has responded, as covered by Sky Sports, suggesting he’s proud of his performances for his country.

He accepts the criticism which was levelled at him when the squad was announced, but has suggested that he’ll do everything he can when he wears the three lions.

Townsend’s focus will now switch back to the Premier League, which returns this weekend.

“It's no secret there's been criticism of my call-up to squad - as usual - but every time I've put on an England shirt I've always done myself justice,” he said.
