Ian Wright full of praise for Tottenham striker Harry Kane after England goal

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The Arsenal legend was impressed with the way the Spurs youngster finished for his second international goal.

Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright has been discussing Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane's return to goalscoring form as he netted against San Marino on Saturday, in coverage shown on ITV.

Though he may have close ties to a side that are traditional rivals of Spurs, there is little doubt about Wright's support of his country, or the excitement young attacking players can bring to the sport, and he said that Kane's finish in San Marino was evidence of his class and proof that the forward would soon find the net for his club side after what has been a frustrating start to the season.

"It's always going to be hard for him to do what he did last season," the 51-year-old told ITV

"But what he's shown given the opportunity in the right place he will finish with aplomb. I thought his goal was fantastic.

"The pass from Jonjo Shelvey was brilliant, the touch on a tricky pitch was quality. Composure to finish like that is class, it's quality.

"What it says to me is given the opportunity, Harry Kane will score goals, even if it's not quite happening for him now (for Spurs)."

Kane has been unable to find the net in Tottenham's opening four Premier League games so far this season, and after his astonishing 31 goals in the previous campaign, it led some to question whether the 22-year-old was capable of continuing to demonstrate such an impressive attacking threat.

But there could be little criticism of the way Kane finished England's fifth goal in the 6-0 win over the European minnows, as he superbly chipped the onrushing goalkeeper and sent the ball flying into the far corner, past two desperate defenders.

The striker himself was understandably delighted, and Spurs fans may well find that their star striker comes back to White Hart Lane with a little more spring in his step than when he left, ahead of a trip to Sunderland next weekend.
