Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has backed Harry Kane to return to his goalscoring ways for his club following the international break.

The 29-year-old was not risked by Gareth Southgate for England’s 5-0 win against Andorra yesterday evening with the captain taking his place on the bench as an unused substitute.

The Telegraph reported ahead of the game that Southgate would have to factor in Kane’s history of ankle issues as one of his main areas of concern when taking to the 3G pitch at the Andorra stadium.

The Three Lions skipper is likely to come back into contention when Hungary are the visitors to Wembley on Tuesday night.

Robinson backed Kane to find the back of the net while on international duty and head back to North London ahead of next Sunday’s clash at Newcastle United ready to hit the ground running.

Kane has failed to score in the opening six Premier League matches of the new campaign.

Robinson told Football Insider: “There was a couple of chances against Villa that you would have expected to him to take. He’s been out of form this season, there’s no two ways about it.

“Things are starting to settle down a bit now though which should help. Everyone is fed up of talking about him and his future. As he is settling down his performances are improving.

“He has not been at his best since before the Euros. There are signs of improvement but there is definitely a lot more to come from him.

“The international break will help him. I think he’ll get a few goals under his belt for England and then return to Spurs at his best.”

Anyone who doubts Kane at this stage of his career is foolish and he will soon be back firing in the goals for Spurs after what has been a difficult first few weeks of the season with his future dominating the summer transfer window.
