With a second-half hat-trick against Slovenian team NS Mura in the Europa Conference League, Harry Kane came to Tottenham’s rescue and replied in style to the rising worries about his form.
Kane came off the bench to regain his scoring touch after failing to score in five Premier League appearances, just as Spurs were starting to look nervous against the underdogs.
With a 2-0 lead, they started the second half cautiously, and when the visitors – who were just created in 2012 – pulled a goal back, they looked potential of pulling off a major upset.
“Every striker wants to score goals,” Kane, who wanted to join Manchester City in the summer, told BT Sport. I wasn’t planning on being on today, but it’s wonderful to have the minutes.”
Kane’s treble demonstrated “why he is one of the top finishers, if not the best finisher in the world” during his 30-minute stretch, according to BT Sport summariser Clive Allen.
The performance came after a 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Sunday. “It was just fantastic, that Arsenal game is gone,” former Spurs striker Peter Crouch said on BT Sport. It doesn’t matter that the opposition is poor.
