Tottenham forward Harry Kane has still yet to score for Spurs this season.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Harry Kane has discussed his ongoing struggles in front of goal for Spurs, having gone four games without finding the back of the net.
The star striker said: “Obviously a lot has been said about me not scoring yet this season, but the confidence is still there. I am delighted to get on the scoresheet and hopefully I can get the ball rolling now and push on. It was a little bit [of a weight on my shoulders]. Obviously every striker wants to be scoring, so when you're not, when people are talking, you want to prove them wrong.”
Kane was speaking after England’s 6-0 victory over San Marino, which secured qualification for Euro 2016. The 22-year-old netted his first goal in seven games against the Principality opposition, with a delightful close range chip further extending an already large margin of victory.
Of course, San Marino are not the kind of opposition to rate a level of progress by, but the quality of goal suggested that Kane still has the confidence around him which seemed to propel him last season.
He was confident enough to even try a chip, let alone pull it off, despite needing to find the back of the net to end his drought.
Spurs fans will be hoping that Kane can take his goal back into the return of the Premier League this weekend and finally get off the mark for the season, especially as poor transfer business has seen Tottenham start the season with just one striker to call upon.
Kane needs to be scoring goals if Spurs are to be a success, and this weekend would be the perfect time to get off the mark of the Lilywhites.
