When Harry Kane obtained the ball some 35 yards from Wojciech Szczesny’s purpose, the Poland defence incredulously backed off.
Having seen their captain skew a shot from an identical vary into the gloves of Jordan Pickford simply moments earlier than, Jan Bednarek and his troops virtually urged Kane to shoot from that distance. Large mistake.
The Tottenham striker unleashed a rasping drive after getting the ball out of his ft which swerved viciously and was in comparison with a Jimmy Anderson swinger by Jim Proudfoot on talkSPORT commentary.
You would virtually sense the discharge of a summer time’s value of angst and pressure from the 28-year-old, who tried to depart north London this summer time for pastures new.
Regardless of reported curiosity from Manchester City, Kane has remained at Tottenham after the switch window slammed shut and has continued to attain objectives at an unimaginable charge.
Talking after the sport in Warsaw, Gareth Southgate had nothing however reward and admiration for his skipper.
“You wouldn’t have observed from the way in which he has educated all week,” Southgate instructed talkSPORT.
“Bodily, he appears to be like in good situation provided that he hasn’t had as lengthy again within the staff.
“In fact, he has scored his three objectives which might have been the proper week for him, however for the equaliser on the finish.”
Damian Szymanski grabbed a late equaliser for the hosts within the Polish capital after a cross into the field from the ethereal Robert Lewandowski.
Earlier than the sport, a lot was made within the media of the assembly of two of probably the most lethal strikers on the planet.
Whereas Lewandowski is recurrently recognised as world class by his friends and pundits alike, Kane’s vacant trophy cupboard is maybe limiting his possibilities of coming into the elite dialog.
But former Spurs striker Darren Bent believes a scarcity of silverware will not be what we must always choose England’s No.9 on.
“In fact, as we’ve stated earlier than, he’s but to ship in finals,” Bent instructed talkSPORT.
“He has performed in a lot of finals and he’s but to ship. However he’s nonetheless probably the greatest centre-forwards on the planet.
“For those who take a look at his purpose return; we all the time say that the Premier League is probably the most aggressive and the toughest league on the planet, he has received 4 Golden boots in that point.
“He’s on the verge of changing into England’s report purpose scorer, you may’t inform me he isn’t world class.”
Whereas it stays to be seen if Kane will get his transfer away from Spurs, you can not query his professionalism and pedigree as a purpose scorer. Maybe worldwide success will silence these ultimate dissenting voices.
