Harry Kane managed to get his name on the scoresheet in England’s 5-1 win over Montenegro, coming in for praise from Ian Wright for his efficiency in front of goal against all kinds of opposition.
“That’s what is so great about him. Opposition like this or even sterner opposition. Harry Kane is going to be dangerous for us. I like the role he is playing for us, at the minute,” the Arsenal legend said on ITV (via HITC) after the game.
And while BBC Sport pundit Wright is right to highlight Kane’s goalscoring proficiency, the 25-year-old brings so much to his side overall.
His decision-making and execution on the counter-attack are just two strengths of his game that can go under the radar amid his goalscoring exploits.
Against Montenegro, there was a play where the England captain received the ball on a counter and held it up tremendously before finding Callum Hudson-Odoi on the other flank who had an abundance of space to exploit.
That very play is what makes Kane such a complete centre-forward and one that both England and Tottenham are lucky to have.
Ultimately, when Kane is not able to find the back of the net (which is barely ever), he still has the skill set to offer the team something else in a way a striker in the poacher mould cannot.
A goalscorer, as Wright has pointed out and as his record suggests. But on his recent England showing alone, it is not hard to see that Kane is much more than that.
