Harry Kane - Player of the Week

Harry Kane - Player of the Week

Kane scores again!

Nobody has scored more goals than Harry Kane in 2015!Tottenham were involved in the only Premier League match last weekend, and they took full advantage with a 2-1 win away to QPR. Spurs' main striker, Harry Kane, scored both goals. He opened the scoring after 34 minutes with a header, when QPR goalkeeper, Robert Green, failed to collect a cross. In the 68th minute, Kane doubled Tottenham's advantage, when he ran through the centre of QPR's defence, before rounding the keeper and putting the ball into an empty net. QPR pulled a goal back, through Brazilian midfielder - Sandro, but it wasn't enough. Spurs are now only 3 points away from a Champions League place, whereas another defeat for QPR leaves them in the relegation zone.

"It was a fantastic performance and he scored two goals." Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs manager.

Is Kane playing well?

Kane celebrates against Liverpool.Kane now has 16 Premier League goals this season, and is only one goal behind Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero in the race for this season's golden boot. In all competitions he has 26 goals this season, which is more than any other Premier League player. Kane is having the best season of his career and he is also in the form of his life. Only Lionel Messi in the five major European Leagues (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France), has scored more goals than Kane in 2015.

"I just have to keep concentrating and doing the best I can for Spurs.Harry Kane.

What do we know about Harry Kane?

Kane and Pochettino talk tactics.Harry Edward Kane was born in North London on 28 July 1993. 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

"My brother and sons were at the QPR match. They prefer to sit with the fans than sit in the executive box, and yes, they know the Harry Kane song!" 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 this season 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?

Kane scores against Arsenal.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), Milwall (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.

Have Spurs ever played in the Champions League?

Will Kane be in the Champions League next season?Spurs have played once in the Champions League, in 2010/11. They beat both Inter Milan and AC Milan on their way to the quarter-finals, where they lost to Real Madrid. They also reached the semi-finals of the old European Cup, in 1962, when they lost to Benfica. Spurs finished fourth in 2011/12, which would normally have meant qualifying for the Champions League, but because Chelsea won the Champions League that year, there was no place for Spurs in that years' competition. Tottenham have finished in the Premier League's top 6 in six of the last nine seasons, and the race for the top 4 is very close again this season.

A great player for the Spurs and English National Team. And I do think that Tottenham can finish top 4 to qualify for the Champions League this season.

Harry Kane is definitely a big player. A real star. If Spurs didn't have him, they would be struggling really hard to survive in the PL.
