Harry Kane has signed a new six-year contract at Tottenham. The news is a major boost for the Spurs fans and follows months of speculation about the England captain’s long-term future.
“I’m looking forward to the new stadium first and foremost and just to keep progressing as a club,” Kane said after putting pen to paper.
The striker’s goalscoring record speaks for itself. Here are five of his most memorable goals for Spurs.
Europa treble for Kane the keeper
Kane was still viewed as a raw talent when he netted his first senior hat-trick in a 5-1 Europa League win over Asteras Tripolis at White Hart Lane in October 2014. The striker finished the match in goal after Hugo Lloris’ late sending off. Kane, then sporting the number 18 shirt, opened the scoring after 13 minutes with a fine 25-yard effort which flew into the bottom corner, going in off the post.
January hangover for Chelsea
Later that season, on New Year’s Day, Spurs romped to a 5-3 win over Chelsea as Kane made his mark in the Premier League. Kane produced another fine finish with his equaliser at 1-1. The forward collected the ball from the left before powering across the edge of the penalty area, holding off Blues midfielder Oscar and then crashing a low, angled drive back into the bottom corner.
Gunners nodded into touch
Kane maintained his fine form through 2015 with a double to help win the north London derby at White Hart Lane on February 7. Having grabbed a brace in the last match at West Brom, the forward was on song again to silence the Gunners as Spurs leapfrogged them in the Premier League table. With the match heading into the final four minutes and seeming set to end in a 1-1 draw, Nabil Bentaleb clipped a wonderful diagonal ball to Kane, who impressively directed his header into the far corner to the delight of the home fans and no doubt onlooking England manager Roy Hodgson.
Kane rocks Arsenal again
While it was not a late winner as 10-man Arsenal, also in the title mix, came from behind to take a point at White Hart Lane on March 5 2016, Kane – in a protective mask – scored one of his finest club goals. After Francis Coquelin’s red card, Toby Alderweireld had equalised on the hour, then just a couple of minutes later Kane latched onto a backheel from Dele Alli out near the corner flag. He promptly cut inside to curl the ball up over David Ospina and into the top corner from an acute angle as the home fans erupted before Alexis Sanchez earned Arsenal a share of the points.
After bagging a hat-trick in the Champions League, Kane continued his hot streak with a double at Premier League new boys Huddersfield on September 30 2017. With Spurs already 2-0 up inside the opening 16 minutes, Kane collected a throw from Kieran Trippier on the right before holding off his marker and spinning past two defenders to drill a 20-yard left-foot effort into the far corner.
