Alasdair Gold has revealed that Harry Kane had an emotional moment to himself with the away section at the Brentford Community Stadium after the travelling Spurs fans sang the striker’s name throughout the game.
On Boxing Day, Kane took to the field for the first time since his penalty miss against France, which led to England being knocked out in the quarterfinal stage of the World Cup.
The Tottenham striker was on the receiving end of taunts from the Brentford fans, who were singing ‘you let your country down’ at the 29-year-old while Spurs fans rallied around the striker and drowned out those chants by singing ‘he’s one of our own’ (Tom Barclay).
Kane certainly did not let the taunts affect him, with the striker meeting Clement Lenglet’s cross with a brilliant header on 64 minutes to bring Spurs back into the game.
Gold has now revealed that the support from the away fans struck a chord with the England captain, who was first to applaud them after the final whistle.
The journalist said on his YouTube channel: “Before kick-off, they were singing ‘one of our own’ and all of this and you could see that meant something to him.
“After the game, he went over and he had a moment by himself. The other players came but he was way ahead of everyone. He applauded the fans, it’s clearly something that struck a chord with him.”

We certainly have one of the best away fans in the league and they did their job on Monday by singing Kane’s name throughout the game and letting the striker know that he will always be loved at N17. His brilliant header against Brentford has put to rest any fears of the penalty miss against France potentially affecting his confidence.
