The season hasn’t even kicked off and Harry Kane is already doing stupidly good things with a football.
Absent for spells of last season through injury, it seems he hasn’t lost his magic touch after scoring a sublime stoppage-time winner against Juventus in the International Champions Cup on Sunday.
With plenty of Mauricio Pochettino’s youngsters rightfully going to earn the plaudits for a fine first half in which Erik Lamela’s goal deservedly had them leading at half time, there’s still only one name that will take the headlines.
Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo turned the game on its head with two quickfire goals, before Lucas Moura struck an equaliser not long after.
The game looked destined for a penalty shootout with added time drifting away, but a certain Kane had slightly differing thoughts. And Twitter duly responded.
Retweet to spread the awareness for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane ending former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny’s career from the half-way line.

Harry Kane’s goal was Unbelievable

Some fans even took time to poke holes in the theory that the Tottenham forward only scores poacher-esque goals.
A theory commonly associated with complete fools whose football knowledge doesn’t stretch further than knowing Juventus play their football in Italy.
Harry Kane is such a tap-in merchant

There are always the pessimists, however.
Whether a joke or not, it remains a humorous approach to something as glorious as the strike we just witnessed.
Don’t let that Kane goal distract you from the fact that he should’ve squared it
