Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane’s assist during England’s 6-2 victory against Iran at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Monday left Ian Wright speechless, according to ITV Sport.
England ran riot in Doha, and although Kane did not score, he did provide two assists in a spectacular Group B opener.
The biggest assist came in the first half, when the 29-year-old set up Raheem Sterling for England’s third goal of the day.
He sent in a magnificent cross straight into the path of Sterling, who tucked the ball into the back of the goal with a first-time finish, much like Kevin de Bruyne in Manchester City’s colours.
That was Kane at his finest, and more example of why he is regarded as one of the top forwards in the world, as Wright couldn’t believe what he was seeing from the Tottenham man.
“Wow, Harry (Kane),” Wright said. “That’s a fantastic goal. Come on, people! The manner he placed it in and the finish are both difficult. Let’s go!”
Harry Kane is England’s key player and best performance, but the fact that he didn’t score but saw his colleague score six goals is amazing.
He also shown that he can provide near-perfect performances while failing to register a single point.
Kane would not admit it, but he will be frustrated that he did not score because, although he will want to help England win the World Cup, he will also want to win back-to-back Golden Boot trophies.
