Spurs 2-2 Hull (8-7 penalties) - Harry's home heroics
31 October 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane has spoken of his pride at scoring his first goal at White Hart Lane.
Our young striker put in a fine performance as he stepped off the bench in the second half of Wednesday night’s epic Capital One Cup tie against Hull City.
The England Under-21 international was lively up front alongside Jermain Defoe, and came close to winning the tie right at the end of the 90 minutes with a rasping effort that smacked off the woodwork.
It was only the beginning of an eventful night for the 20-year-old, though, as he scored in extra time to level the scores after the Tigers had gone 2-1 in front, before confidently despatching his spot kick in our 8-7 triumph on penalties.
And Harry said he was delighted with how events unfolded at the Lane.
“It’s very important and a proud moment for me to score my first goal at White Hart Lane,” he said.
“It was great to score the equaliser to get us back in the game and to go on and win it on penalties.”
On his earlier effort, which struck the intersection of the bar and post, Harry added: “It felt so good coming of my foot and I thought it was in all the way but then it struck the post at the last minute. That was unfortunate but it was great to get the win in the end.
“It’s going well so far. I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and if I get the chance, I’ll try to score. That’s all I can do at the moment.”
