"La competición no forja el carácter. Lo revela". Imanol Ibarrondo
19th of March 2015, Raheem Sterling centres perfectly and the ball out of the blue and as if magnetized, is headed into the back of the net by Harry Kane, who scores just 80 seconds after setting foot on the pitch at the legendary Wembley Stadium. It’s his debut for England.
A move that now has thousands of englishmen dreaming of reaching the next World Cup.
Without doubt Harry Kane is the revelation of the Premier League and exaggerating only a little, of Europe. No other player like Spurs’ number 18 has had so much impact on their club. Many are those who are claiming that he should have been named best player of the Premier.
But who is Harry Kane? What does the future hold for him? Let’s analyze the player who, in just a few months, has enamoured the UK.
His story is a peculiar one. His position is not that of a pure striker, but his goal average is enviable. In fact, in some of his early matches he played in midfield, and that has added value to his football.
Let’s analyze him on a 5 basic points:
In this sequence of a match many of Harry Kane’s the qualities we have discussed are summarized:
So who does the future hold for him? This season presents some spectacular numbers but an exception in his still short career. His game is not like what his body language says. But sudden hatchings and misleading body language has always been and will always be. Kane could be the next.
Things are going well for him, but in my opinion, we have to wait a while to confirm if confidence is giving him good luck or if he really is his own master. I have no doubt he will be one of the reference players in English football in the coming years. He shows promise although it is too early to determine whether he will be the great striker of the next decade.
What is certain is that today and at his age, he has achieved something only by getting chosen: a whole country dreaming of something big. Harry Kane has England at his feet!
