Kane reacts on Twitter to England win - Speaks out on 'goal'

English Flag

Tottenham star Harry Kane is claiming the strike against Lithuania as his.

Harry Kane wants England's second goal as his own, and took to Twitter after the 3-0 win over Lithuania to let fans know.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker thought he had netted in the first half after firing home after a one-two with Liverpool's Adam Lallana - his opponent this weekend - but to see his effort ruled as an own goal.

Kane hit the post, with the ball rebounding onto goalkeeper Giedrus Arlauskis, before ending up in the net.

The England striker had eight shots during the game, but could not find a way through in the second half.

With every goal counting towards a striker's tally, and especially Kane who has struggled to hit the net (at the right end) this season, it's little wonder he is keen to get the credit for his strike.

In his favour is former England goalkeeper David James, who called for consistency, looking back at a similar goal Wayne Rooney had awarded to him at a major tournament.
