Tim's praise for Harry
08 April 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Tim Sherwood led the praise for Harry Kane after the young striker's performance against Sunderland.
The Academy product, still only 20, marked his first start in the Premier League for us with his first Premier League goal as we marched to a 5-1 win against the Black Cats at the Lane.
Harry was heavily involved throughout and had a couple of near misses before turning home Christian Eriksen's cross for the key second goal on 59 minutes.
That put us 2-1 up and Harry then provided the assist for the fourth goal, a tap-in for Emmanuel Adebayor, his second on the night. Christian and Gylfi Sigurdsson completed the goalscoring.
"The front players were fluid, popping up in different areas of the field, difficult to mark and the main reason for that, for me, was Harry Kane," said Tim.
"I thought he was fantastic. He ran his heart out, stretched Sunderland and created space for the likes of Christian and Azza to get into the pockets.
"Harry has been patient, waited for his opportunity, he’s got stronger around his body and has more game know-how. He decided he didn’t want to go out on loan when Andre was here, he wanted to stay and fight for his place and he made a great decision."
