Tottenham fans convinced one man is behind Harry Kane’s resurgence as hitman closes on Rooney record




England’s meeting with Albania this evening saw star hitman Harry Kane manage a timely return to form, since attributed to one figure in particular on the part of the Tottenham Hotspur faithful.

Kane leads rout

Gareth Southgate’s men were of course back in competitive action a short time ago.

On the back of a pair of disappointing stalemates across their last three fixtures, the Three Lions played host to Albania, desperate for a return to winning ways in their bid to book a spot at next year’s World Cup.

And, when all was said and done at Wembley, to say that England managed exactly that would be something of an understatement.

An utterly dominant display, which saw them race out to a 5-goal advantage before the half-time whistle had even sounded, ultimately culminated in Southgate and co. emerging on the right side of a 5-0 scoreline.

Harry Kane proved the undoubted star of the show, bagging an altogether impressive hat-trick, with Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson having managed to find the net, too:

‘The Conte effect’

In turn, on the back of the full-time whistle sounding on a brilliant night all-round for England, it should come as little surprise to hear that the name of one member of Southgate’s squad has since stolen the headlines…

The player in question? Harry Kane.

Kane, who has of course been heavily criticised over the early months of the campaign, looked back to his brilliant best versus Albania, netting a ‘perfect’ hat-trick to close the gap ever further on Wayne Rooney’s all-time England goalscoring record:

One set of supporters unsurprisingly buoyed by Kane’s return to form, meanwhile, were those of a Tottenham persuasion.

And, if the latest word spreading across social media is anything to go by, then, evidently, many are of the opinion that a certain high-profile arrival in north London last week may already be having a direct effect on Spurs’ captain’s exploits in front of goal…
