Harry Kane has been all over the news in the past few months but for the right reasons. His impressive performances for his club Tottenham Hotspurs has earned him a few praises not only from his club mates but also from football experts and coaches. Basically from everyone in the footballing world.
What many assumed to be a purple patch for the young lad from England turned out to be something much more spectacular with 30 goals this season already which also includes his debut goal for England, surely you can’t say that he is lucky. Well we all know he is a fighter, he had to fight his way into the playing eleven for Tottenham and had to convince his boss to play him frequently. And his hard work has surely paid off with his results weekly.
But is Harry Kane a needle in a haystack? Or has he set a trend that the proud footballing nation of England has more budding and talented youngsters to follow? England a passionate footballing country always has produced talented players like David Beckham, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard. But after some point that talent just stopped with players who we thought had a lot of promise just turned out to be mediocre. But with the current bunch of England youngsters that is Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and so on are proof that England has some great upcoming talents.
This young lot has broken the stereotype of England being a very one dimensional team which the past was being a very slow paced team, lacked bite upfront and therefore didn’t do really well against top European and South American Teams as those nations had pacey and skillfully talented players. But With the introduction of these young talents, England has a lot more to offer making them not physically strong which they always were, but also now technically strong.
Love him or loathe him, Harry Kane has not only proven that he is a force to be reckoned with in the years to come, but also showing the world that England has a lot of young and talented footballers cropping up and the footballing world better be prepared for it. Brazil and Germany national team have all talented youngsters in their squad and it seems with England also coming up with a few youthful talents themselves it could just be the start of something very exciting for the national team.
