Chicago Fire 0-2 Spurs - Harry's delight
27 July 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane paid tribute to Lewis Holtby's role in his first goal of pre-season against Chicago Fire – but insisted he owed him one anyway!
The striker opened the scoring after just five minutes as we toppled the MLS side 2-0 at Toyota Park.
Lewis won possession from Fire defender Jeff Larentowicz and was clean through on goal but rolled the ball square for Harry to tap home.
Aaron Lennon completed the win and the Tour with a fine solo goal five minutes from time to make it wins against Fire and Toronto and a 3-3 draw against Seattle Sounders during our time in North America.
“We played well and it was tough out there, very humid, very hot and we had to keep the ball,” he said.
“It was good to get the 2-0 victory and for me, it’s always good to get on the scoresheet.
“It doesn’t matter what game it is, whether it’s pre-season or Premier League, a goalscorer wants to score goals and it was great to be able to do that.”
As for Lewis’ assist, Harry added: “He had to repay me after the first game in Seattle!” referring to his assist for Lewis’ opening goal against the Sounders. “It was great pressing from Lewis and he had the composure to slide me in and I just had to stick it in the net.”
