Harry Kane –
the strengths and weaknesses of the player. Pure football qualities of Kane are also beyond doubt. With the growth of 188 centimeters, it is logical to expect from him a wonderful game of head, but not outstanding speed performance. And yet Harry is fast. First of all at a distance. Just look at the volume of its movements. Kane can often be seen in the center of the field, where he rises to help partners organize a positional attack, but literally in 7 seconds this forward is in the center of someone else’s penalty, being ready for completion. Kane is possibly the only classic “ninth issue” in the world capable of scoring such a number of goals. Now he has 53 goals for the calendar 2017, and he can still overtake Messi, who currently has scored the most in the world – 54. But the Argentinian will not play this year anymore, and Kane will enter the field on December 26 against Southampton. Yes, one can argue with this statement, considering that Edinson Cavani and Robert Lewandowski also demonstrate incredible results, but their playing competencies still extend far beyond the usual “nine”. Yes, and they still speak not for Tottenham, but for PSG and Bavaria, where the level of partners is disproportionately higher. Scoring chances for them create the best midfielders of the world, and Kane has a lot to do on their own. He has no equal when the game is played inside or on the approaches to the opponent’s penalty area. This is facilitated by the absolute hull skills of the hull and the diverse arsenal of strikes that Harry can use even if he is in the most uncomfortable position. At the same time, he keeps his cosmic level in all tournaments in which he enters the field.
Harry Kane’s club career.
Harry is a student of Tottenham; at the Academy of Spurs, he has established himself as a fast-footed, intelligent forward. In the 2009/10 season, Harry scored 20 goals in 22 matches for the Spurs youth team, forcing Tottenham’s then mentor Harry Redknapp to draw attention to himself and include him in the team’s bid for the League Cup matches. Kane was on the bench in matches with Everton and Bolton, but the field did not come out. But in the summer of 2011, the player made his debut for the “spurs” in the qualifying tournament of the Europa League against the Scottish “Hearts”. In this match, the Englishman earned a penalty for his team and played more than 70 minutes. Two weeks later, the football player came out from the first minutes in the group stage of the Europa League against the Greek team “PAOK”, and a couple of days later scored a goal against Shamrock Rovers. Harry played in all the matches of the group stage and helped the “spurs” to leave the first place in the group. In the winter of 2012, the footballer went for rent to the Leyton Orient First League club. He scored in his second match for the new team, hitting the gates of Sheffield Wednesday. Later a business trip to the club of the Millwall Championship followed, as well as a six-month stay in the camp of a representative of the Premier League Norwich City. As part of the “canaries” failed to gain a foothold, having been injured in the second game. However, in September, Kane still managed to make his debut in the Premier League, playing a few minutes in a match against West Ham. In winter, the Englishman returned to Tottenham, but in February he was rented to Leicester City club. Here Kane spent 15 matches and scored two goals. In the summer of 2013, Andre Villas-Boash, the Spurs mentor, decided to leave the player on the team and gave him a chance to prove himself in the League Cup against Birmingham and the Europa League. With the arrival of the team of Tim Sherwood to the helm, Harry Kane began to fall more often into the basis of the “spurs”. In April 2014 he made his debut for the first time at the heart of the London team, scoring a goal and giving an assist in the match against Sunderland.
Until the end of the season, the striker played in six more games, scoring two goals. Tottenham Hotspur placed sixth in the standings and won the right to play in the Europa League. In the summer, Harry signed a new five-year agreement with the team, according to which the player began to receive £ 24,000 a week. The 2014/15 season started with an assist to Dyer, whose goal brought the Spurs an away win over West Ham (0-1). Three days later, Kane scored the winning goal with the transfer of Eric Lamela in the Europa League bout against the Cypriot club AEL. In the second leg against “AEL”, he failed to realize a penalty, but then managed to score the first goal of his team, which eventually became victorious. This season, Kane has managed to become the team leader, scoring 31 goals in all tournaments. Also, thanks to Harry Tottenham, he made it to the League Cup final, but the team lost to Chelsea (0: 2). The following season, 25 goals in the Premier League allowed him to become the top scorer of the championship. The season 2016/17 started for the forward not too successfully, he was injured and missed a month and a half. Returning to the field after the injury, Kane again began to demonstrate that he is a born striker. For 30 matches in the Premier League the “hurricane” was able to score 30 goals, which allowed Tottenham to take second place in the championship and for the first time get ahead of its principal rival, London Arsenal. Calendar 2017 was for Kane the best in his career. The young Englishman managed to beat the record of the great Alan Shearer, scoring over 39 goals in 36 games. In the same year, he managed to become the top scorer, scoring 56 goals in 52 matches in all competitions, and overtook the Barcelona striker Lionel Messi. Given the high performance, the lineup of the most serious challengers, including Real Madrid and Manchester United, lined up for a 24-year-old forward.
