Peter Crouch has lavished praise on Harry Kane for his all-round game after the striker put in another stellar display in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb this week.
Kane’s brace took the striker’s tally to 26 goals this season, with the 27-year-old also having notched up 16 assists so far (Transfermarkt).
The England captain is certainly showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon and looks statistically on course to having the best campaign of his career so far.
The striker’s first goal against Zagreb was a case of him being in the right place at the right time after Erik Lamela’s effort came off the post and fell into his path.
Just as Tottenham were getting a little nervy in the second half the longer the score stayed at 1-0, Kane popped up with another goal to double the home side’s advantage.
The 27-year-old pounced on a defensive mistake and did brilliantly to shift the ball and hit it through the defender’s legs into the back of net.
However, it was not just Kane’s goals that impressed Crouch but also the striker’s all-round contribution.
The former Spurs striker told BT Sport ESPN (10:13pm, 11 March): “His performance today was fantastic.
“It’s just his all-round involvement. He creates so much as well, he’s almost Tottenham’s best midfielder and centre-forward.
“It’s amazing. He also has the awareness to know when he needs to be in the six-yard box to finish things off.”
Spurs Web Opinion
If Tottenham had challenged for the Premier League this season, I believe Kane would be in a shout for the Ballon d’Or. He has certainly not been far off the best players in the world.
Hopefully, we can win either the Europa League or the League Cup this season to convince the 27-year-old that we are moving in the right direction and to get him to commit his future to the club.
