After surviving a lot of critisms since his failed attempt to join Manchester city during the transfer window, it seems that the England’s national captain, Harry Kane, is back to form as he scored thrice in Thursday’s match against Mura.
Tottenham hosted Mura in the Europa second match conference league and got them really thrashed to a final score of 5:1.
Kane believes that now is the time for Tottenham to rally behind Nuno Espirito Santo and get their Premier League season back on track.
Harry Kane also had a record of becoming the first Spurs player to score a hat-trick as a substitute since Ronny Rosenthal in the FA Cup back in 1995, while he is only the third man to hit three goals in a game in three separate major UEFA club competitions.
“Us as players and staff need to stick together and work hard,” he told BT Sport. “Our recent form has not been great, but we need to try to turn it around next game.
“Every striker wants to score goals. I probably wasn’t expecting to come on today, but it’s nice to get the minutes. Whenever you see the ball hit the back of the net it’s a good feeling. Hopefully, we can take it into the weekend.”
“We started the game really well, went two ahead, but we lost our way a little bit. They scored a great goal,” said Kane.
“We made it harder than we needed to. The momentum shifted in their favour. It was about coming on and doing a job for the team.”
Tottenham’s boss Nuno seems very happy with himself as he spoke about the match saying: “We started very well, our dynamic was good.
“The beginning of the second half, they scored. After that, we played good. A good game.
“It [the triple substitution] was needed. The best way to prepare the players is to play. The minutes were important for the boys.
“[There were] a lot of positives.” he concluded.
Tottenham will be facing Aston Villa in their premier league match this weekend.
