Kane bags another hat-trick for Spurs!

Harry Kane scored his second hat trick of 2017 as Tottenham beat their London rivals, Fulham, to progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. On a weekend of FA Cup surprise results, Tottenham never looked in danger against their local rivals from the Championship - the division below the Premier League. Kane could have scored twice before he got on the scoresheet in the 16th minute. The striker slid in to convert a cross from Christian Eriksen. The same two players combined in the 50th minute when Eriksen crossed for Kane, who scored with a controlled finish. With 15 minutes to go, Dele Alli's pass put Kane clear and the striker made no mistake to complete his fifth hat-trick for Tottenham.

It was a great team performance. We're very happy to be going home with the win. Harry Kane, Spurs striker.

Can Spurs win the FA Cup?

Four of Eriksen's last six assists have been for Harry Kane.

Only Arsenal (12) and Manchester Utd (11) have won the FA Cup more times than Tottenham but the last time they won the competition was back in 1991. In fact, the last trophy that Spurs won was the League Cup in 2008. This season, Tottenham are in a race to finish in the Champions League places in the Premier League, but the fans would welcome a trip to Wembley Stadium for the FA Cup Final in May. The priority might be the Premier League but with a home draw against League One Millwall in the quarter-finals, Tottenham are only three wins away from winning the oldest cup competition in world football. 

We've been playing each other for a while now and we know each other's runs. Christian Eriksen, Tottenham midfielder.

What do we know about Harry Kane?

Did you know that Kane used to play for Arsenal?

Harry Edward Kane was born in North London on 28 July 1993. He went to Chingford Foundation School in London, which was the same school David Beckham had gone to ten years before him. One of Kane's first clubs as a youth player wasn't Tottenham, but their North London rivals - Arsenal. He spent a year with Arsenal's youth academy when he was 8 years old. He left Arsenal after only one season when he was told that he wasn't good enough. When he was 11, he joined Tottenham's youth team and has been at White Hart Lane (Tottenham's stadium) ever since. He now has his own song and his own nickname - the HurriKane!

It's too early to speak about winning trophies. Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs manager.

Who does Kane support?

Harry Kane scarves are popular with fans.

Despite playing for Arsenal's youth team before he joined Tottenham, Kane has always been a Spurs fan. He was born just 5 miles from White Hart Lane and all his familly are passionate Spurs supporters. Even while he was playing for Arsenal as a child, each weekend he watched Spurs at White Hart Lane! These days, Spurs fans take pride in singing about Kane. One of their favourite songs includes the line; 'Harry Kane, he's one of our own.'

If I'm at Tottenham in 10 years' time, I will be very proud and very honoured. I love this club. Harry Kane.

How many clubs has Kane played for?

Harry Kane is a regular in the England team.

Kane has only ever had one professional parent club - Tottenham Hotspur, but he has played for four other professional teams in England. As a young player, Kane found it difficult to break into Tottenham's first-team, With players like Gareth Bale, Jermaine Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor in his favourite position, most players would find this difficult! He was sent out on loan to four different clubs. He played for Leyton Orient (3rd level), Millwall (2nd level), Norwich City (Premier League) and Leicester City (2nd level) and Kane believes his time on loan at lower level clubs helped him break into the Spurs team at the end of the 2013/14 season.

I enjoyed all my loan spells and believe I became a better player after playing at each club. Harry Kane.

Correct me

There are currently known all participants of the FA Cup semi-finals. Spurs have worthy opponents and it'll be very difficult to win the trophy. I think all four have equal chances.

HurriKane is very witty and relevant nickname! Great Italian player Roberto Baggio was known as Il Divin Codino (The Divine Ponytail) for the hairstyle he had for the most of his career.

In my country families also support the same local team.

It is too early to say which team from the 8 qualified will win the trophy.

This nickname is well connected to the player name but fans are supposed to apreciate the image of the player game. Is it like a hurrycan or just a breezy wind? My favourite is the 'sheep' for our best sixties player Lalmas with his semi bold head and its curled some legs.

Often families support the local club ... or its neighbor.
