Goals Will Come For Spurs Man Harry Kane

Harry Kane

It’s can’t be easy being an English striker and being dubbed the next Alan Shearer.

Add on the pressure of being tagged Tottenham Hotspur’s main goalscoring threat and you can see why Harry Kane is so desperate to get back on the scoresheet for his club!

The hitman has failed to score for the White Hart Lane side so far this term. In fact it has been eight games since he last netted for Spurs.

His lack of form in front of goal has led to some to speculate that last seasons goalscoring exploits were a one time thing or that the Spurs number ten shirt might be cursed or a burden.

But for me it’s quite simple, the goals for Kane will come.

He showed in Tottenham’s League Cup defeat against London rivals Arsenal in midweek that he still has the qualities to shine as a free scoring striker.

His movement is still there and he continues to work hard. The way he took his disallowed goal showed that he still has the instincts to find the net under pressure.

Then we had the outlandish scissor kick strike that was cleared off the line. That showed any keen footballing observer that his confidence in his own ability remains in tact and that he will soon hit the back of the net.

When he finally does record that first strike, then expect him to take off and go on a rich vein of goalscoring form.

Yes he has snatched at a few chances but that comes when you are a young forward with so much expectation on your shoulders. Remember he’s still only twenty-two years old!

Harry Kane’s fantastic effort that gave England the lead over Switzerland earlier this month, proved once and for all that he has the abilities to score goals.

The player just needs to remain calm and hope he takes his next chance.

It would be totally different if he wasn’t getting in the right positions or was starting to sulk or moan at teammates.

But he just doesn’t seem phased by the fuss:

“No I wouldn’t call it a drought,”

“Everyone else probably will but I know the goals will come. Scoring for England against Switzerland was a great confidence booster and I’m not worried at all.”

With that kind of attitude I think a goal for Harry Kane is just waiting around the corner… Maybe against Premier League leaders Man City this weekend!
