Tottenham Hotspur’s lead man Harry Kane was at tip top form for England against Spain last night in the UEFA Nations League.

England needed a win to give themselves any chance of topping the group ahead of Spain and Croatia.

Kane led the team out as captain, with Harry Winks making his second appearance for his country, and Trippier and Dier also featuring from the start.

Harry Kane was simply immense for the entire 90 minutes as the created all three of England’s goals in a momentous 3-2 victory.

For the first goal, Harry Kane picked the ball up on the half way line from a Pickford pass, quickly turned and fired a pass out to Rashford, who in turn picked out Sterling. The Man City man burst into the box and fired home into the top corner.

Kane turned creator again not long after in the first half as he held up the ball beautifully before twisted and turning into space. He then curled a delightful ball ahead of the Spain defence for Rashford to run on to and finish.

A third goal was added before the break, and it was that man Kane setting it up again. Ross Barkley chipped a lovely ball over the top of the defence to Kane at the back post who had the presence of mind to tap it across the face for Sterling’s second.

Kane walked his team into the tunnel at half time, captain’s armband around his sleeve, his team 3-0 up against the Spanish.

What a game from the big man.
