England international Harry Kane is looking forward to participating for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League opener against Newcastle United. The 24-year-old has just returned after a stressful World Cup campaign but he does not seem to have plans for an extended rest with the curtain raiser against Newcastle United on his mind.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Kane revealed his ambition to represent Spurs during the opening game versus the Magpies. He added to speak about his goalless streak during the month of August and he is hopeful of changing the trend following his goalscoring exploits at the World Cup, he said: “I'll hopefully be back for the first game and hopefully I can try and score in August this year," he said with a smile.
"Not many people get to say they've won a golden boot in a World Cup, it's a big achievement.I said before coming into the tournament I wanted to prove I could do it in these big tournaments. The Euros [in 2016] was disappointing for me and if anything I wanted to prove to myself I could score at this level. I've scored at every other level and it was important I did that. I'm extremely proud.”
Tottenham have progressed immensely under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino over the past four seasons and much of this has come about from the prowess of Kane in the forward department. Kane never looked like making the starting lineup under the predecessors behind Pochettino but the Argentine’s confidence in his ability has truly paid dividends with him scoring his 100th Premier League goal in the season just past.
Spurs are presently preparing themselves for their pre-season tour of the United States where they are scheduled to take on AS Roma, Barcelona and AC Milan. Thereafter, they have a game at Girona before tackling Newcastle United in their Premier League opener on June 11.
