Harry Kane reveals the impact of his World Cup penalty error
#Harry #Kane #reveals #impact #World #Cup #penalty #error Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Harry Kane has admitted he ‘probably’ will never forget the penalty he missed in the closing stages of England’s World Cup quarter-final defeat by France last month, but insists it only fueled his desire for success.
Kane turned up the style for Spurs on Wednesday night as they overcame a poor first 45 minutes to thrash Crystal Palace and record a first Premier League win since November.
But looking back at the World Cup sliding doors moments, he told the Evening Standard: “It was a tough moment for me. It’s never easy, but it’s part of football, part of the ups and downs of our sport.
“I had a bit of time after that just to think and it made me even hungrier to come back and be successful. So nights like last night are always good for me and the team and that was badly needed even after the last two results.”
Kane was immediately back in action with Spurs at the earliest opportunity after the World Cup, starting and scoring in a 2-2 comeback tie against Brentford. With the Palace game on the books, he now has 15 Premier League goals for the season and has a chance to match or improve on his career 30-goal league goal if he maintains his current rate for the remainder of the season .
“I’ll probably remember it for the rest of my life, but that’s part of the game. It will not affect me as a player or as a person. I’ll keep working hard to improve and it was nice to get our first win since coming back.”
With two more goals, Kane will equal Spurs’ all-time goalscoring record of 266, held by Jimmy Greaves, while he is 62 behind Alan Shearer’s Premier League goals record.
