Tottenham supporters have been drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern in the last few days after seeing their team bow out of the Champions League on Wednesday night courtesy of a 4-3 aggregate defeat to Serie A champions Juventus.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men went into the return leg at Wembley earlier this week having salvaged a 2-2 draw with the Italian giants in Turin three weeks ago, despite falling 2-0 down after just ten minutes. And things looked to be going well for Spurs when Son Heung-min gave them the lead at the national stadium, but two goals in three second half minutes from first Gonzalo Higuain and then Paulo Dybala sealed victory for the Old Lady, thus seeing last season’s runners-up progress to the quarter-finals for the fourth time in six years.
Consequently, there have been many downbeat and despondent Tottenham fans in the Tavern in recent times, yet they are likely to be interested by a recent report from The Daily Star, which details some potentially huge news for striker Harry Kane.
The 24-year-old has once again been in scintillating goal-scoring form for the North London outfit this term with 35 goals in just 38 appearances for Pochettino’s side, thus seeing him exceed the 30-goal mark for the third time in the last four seasons.
And things could be about to get even better for the striker, as reports suggest that he is set to be named by Gareth Southgate as England’s captain for the upcoming World Cup in Russia.
And this is sure to come as a big boost to Kane ahead of a potentially huge summer for the 24-year-old.
Landlord’s verdict: Harry Kane has once again proven why he is one of the best strikers in world football with 35 goals in just 38 appearances for Tottenham this season, yet things could be about to get even better for the 24-year-old.
And that’s because reports suggest that England manager Gareth Southgate is set to name the forward as the national team’s captain for the upcoming World Cup in Russia, what with Kane having already donned the armband before, and one of a select few players seemingly guaranteed to start if fit.
And this huge news is sure to come as a big boost to the Spurs striker, who will surely be hoping to continue his fine goal-scoring form between now and the end of the season in a bid to take that momentum into this summer’s World Cup finals.
Tottenham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
