The England captain had only been on the pitch for a matter of seconds before his whipped cross was diverted into the net, and he then went one better by lashing in Tottenham’s 3rd goal of the match not long after. Kane then wrapped up an enthralling pre-season spectacle with a fine free-kick.
Although Spurs have improved their squad significantly over the summer, Kane is still very much the main man. Tottenham’s chances of success this year will once again hinge heavily on the striker, who has already laid down a marker.
Conte whipping Spurs into shape
Conte’s brutal pre-season training approach has gone viral in recent days, and the Italian’s tough stance is seemingly paying off. Although there were some question marks defensively, Tottenham looked formidable at times going forward in Conte’s preferred 3-4-3 formation.
With much more still to come from Spurs, and more signings expected, there’s every chance that Conte’s savage methods could reap the ultimate reward over the coming months. He wants Tottenham to challenge for trophies rather than make up the numbers – and it would be foolish to bet against him.
