Tottenham star Harry Kane was back with a bang in Friday's astonishing 6-1 win over Inter Milan, and the striker told the club's website that it was important to get a couple of goals after working so card in preseason training, ahead of the new season.

“The penalty gave me a great opportunity to get on the scoresheet early so I was happy to put that one away,” Kane said on tottenhamhotspur.com. “It’s always nice to come back with a couple of goals and I thought we dominated and played very well.

“There were a few of us playing our first game back this pre-season but we felt good. We’ve trained hard of course and didn’t have too much of a break, so we all feel quite match fit and it was good to get going again."

The England international returned to Spurs duty for the first time since a disappointing European Championships, but wasted no time in demonstrating his quality once again in a Spurs shirt.

Kane smashed home a penalty to open the scoring, having set up Kyle Walker in the foul leading to it, and the 23-year-old also laid the ball off for Erik Lamela's wonderful strike from range.

He displayed a quality on the ball and offensive responsibility that epitomises his place in Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side, and importantly, he linked up superbly with Vincent Janssen in the second half when he played in a number ten position.

Kane scored his second after the break too, smashing the ball past Samir Handanovic from the edge of the box.

It is especially encouraging news for any that had a hint of concern that Kane's Euro form would infect his Spurs performances. Coupled with the fact that the England man didn't feature in any other preseason friendlies, it was telling that the forward seamlessly dropped back into the team and contributed to a sensational attacking performance that indicated a whole host of the club's young attacking talents have developed a little more for the new season.

What are the chances that Kane ends another season with another golden boot accolade?
