Tottenham Talisman Harry Kane Celebrates Honours With World-Class Wonder Goal Against Wolves
Though most of the 3pm Premier League fixtures were devoid of goals, with only two deadlocks broken out of the five matches by a single goal, once again Tottenham Hotspur hero Harry Kane stepped up to provide the spectacle.
At Spurs’ temporary home of Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon, it took Kane just over twenty minutes to open his account for the day with a simply exquisite strike, a fitting way to celebrate receiving his MBE that will be awarded in the New Years Honours and was revealed earlier in the day.
Kane is receiving the prestigious award after his stunning summer captaining England and bagging the Golden Boot, only the second player from the country to do so after Gary Lineker in 1986, over 30 years ago.
When the news was announced – alongside his national team coach Gareth Southgate receiving an OBE – Kane took time to tweet;
"I am very passionate about our country and very patriotic so to get an MBE makes me immensely proud. It has been a great year for club and country. It shows hard work pays off but I could not do it without the team-mates, family and friends I have got around me. Thank you."
It seems, however, Kane saved his true gratitude for on the pitch in front of the adoring Lilywhites, who have become used to his heroics over the past several seasons.
A breakout star in 2014/15, Kane has gone on to make close to 250 appearances for Spurs and bag over 150 goals.
Against Wolves in Gameweek 20, Kane collected the ball from teammate Son Heung-min, picked his spot – almost routinely - and curled it past Rui Patricio on the 22nd minute mark. Superlatives escape,
A world-class strike from a world-class player.
Harry Kane MBE.
