Who could possibly have imaged a few years ago that Harry Kane would one day be widely regarded as one of the world’s elite strikers?
The Tottenham star was plying his trade with Leicester City when they were in the Championship during the 2012-13 campaign and spent time on loan at Leyton Orient, Millwall and Norwich City before that.
Now he’s worth over £200 million - according to Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy, anyway - and on Real Madrid’s radar following three, soon to be four, prolific seasons.
Kane began to show people that he’s the real deal during the 2014-15 campaign when he scored 31 goals in 51 appearances for Spurs.
In the previous season, he’d only managed to score four goals in 19 matches. Many Spurs fans at the time weren’t convinced he was good enough for the club and, in truth, that opinion was perfectly understandable.
But he’s come on in leaps and bounds since then and the only question people are asking themselves now is whether or not he’s too good for Spurs.
Kane's breakthrough match
One of Kane’s breakthrough matches came in October 2014 against Asteras Tripolis in the Europa League.
Erik Lamela made the headlines for scoring a sensational ‘rabona’ strike - but Kane helped himself to a hat-trick as Spurs hammered their opponents 5-1 at White Hart Lane.
In what proved to be a hugely entertaining game, Hugo Lloris was sent off in the closing stages of the match for bringing down Tasos Tsokanis as the last man.
All three substitutions had already been made, meaning one of Spurs’ outfield players were forced to go in goal.
Kane goals in goal for Spurs
Step forward, Harry Kane.
Full of confidence after this hat-trick, the youngster pulled on Lloris’ jersey and took his place in goal to defend a free-kick.
What happened next, however, was absolutely comical.
Jeronimo Barrales hit a tame free-kick which Kane somehow allowed to squirm under him and into the back of the net.

Oh, Harry. Stick to scoring tons of goals, mate.
