Harry reflects on U21s draw at Villa
17 September 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane admitted our Under-21s first half show wasn’t good enough after inspiring the comeback for a 1-1 draw against Villa.
The striker was in outstanding form in the second half at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium.
Villa had the best of the first half and led at the break via Kevin Toner’s header in the 18th minute.
Harry led the recovery with a penalty three minutes into the second half and went on to strike the post. Laste Dombaxe also hit the woodwork and we were denied on numerous occasions by Benjamin Siegrist as it ended 1-1 in the Barclays U21 Premier League.
“We started slowly and had a poor first half, gave the ball away cheaply too many times and then got punished at a set-piece,” said Harry.
“We came in at half-time and had a chat, picked ourselves up and came out in the second half a different team.
“We got on the ball, played forward, made forward runs and had chances to win the game.
“We should have won with the chances we created but credit to the lads with how we came back because the first half wasn’t good enough.”
