Tottenham ease past Pacos de Ferreira with help of Harry Kane brace
On Thursday night, Harry Kane scored twice on his return to Tottenham as Nuno Espírito Santo’s men qualified with a 3-0 win over Pacos de Ferreira.
The day after the England captain announced he would stay with his boys’ club after the desired move to Manchester City never occurred, he somehow began to mend his relationship with the brace that helped clear the save from 1-0, cancelling the first game.
The last time Spurs played at his home in London, the fans shouted, “Have you seen Harry Kane?”
But all was forgiven for the Portuguese outfit, as more than 30,000 spectators let their star striker know he was still “one of us.”
Two goals in the first 35 minutes reminded everyone why Spurs refused to sell him to City, and Giovanni Lo Celso’s deflected free-kick closed the game.
Kane has increased his score to 223 goals for the club, and with his future close at hand, he will see a record 266 Jimmy Greaves Marker he can hit this season.
Tonight would always be Kane, and he could only find the result in 18 seconds.
Christian Romero’s long pass from above was controlled dead by the striker, but he stepped up his effort from above.
It didn’t take much more to mark his return with a goal as he pushed Spurs forward in the ninth minute of the night.
Harry Winx picked up the ball well, played in Brian Gill, and the Spanish winger was caught by Kane and shot at home.
This was a particular reaction from the stadium fans, and any concerns Kane had about how he would be received after this summer’s transfer saga would go away.
His second goal came 10 minutes before the break when his blocked shot fell to Lo Celso, who tried to bounce, but the ball returned to Kane, and he made no mistake.
