“We’ve pushed him”- Southgate claims England environment has helped 28-year-old Tottenham star maintain form despite poor Spurs run

Gareth Southgate believes the England team’s environment is helping Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane maintain his form

According to England manager Gareth Southgate (h/t The Guardian), The Three Lions’s team environment has helped Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane maintain his goal-scoring form.

The 28-year-old striker has played an instrumental part for club and country throughout his stint as a professional footballer. The English captain has scored 227 goals and provided 49 assists for the Lilywhites in 346 games across all competitions so far. The striker has been an instrumental part of  Spurs for a long time despite managerial changes in the last couple of seasons.

Kane enjoyed a fruitful season last campaign when he scored 33 goals and recorded 17 assists for the North London club across all competitions. Despite his clinical exploits on the pitch, the English international has failed to open his goal-scoring account in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur this season.

The Spurs striker was linked to fellow English side, Manchester City. The move is said to be blocked by the club and this saga may have had an effect on his recent form. That being said the 28-year-old player has managed to continue his great form with the Three Lions.

English manager Gareth Southgate made his thoughts known on Kane’s current situation and his performances with the national side:

“There are obviously some games that are against a lower level of opponent, where it’s slightly easier to score goals. But he’s scored against some of the biggest opponents for us. I can’t talk about the club but I think he feels settled in our environment. I think it’s an environment where he knows we have belief but we have pushed him.”

Southgate himself has managed to do a wonderful job with the English national side as he took them to the final of the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship where they lost to Italy in a penalty shootout, in what proved to be a close encounter.

On the other hand, Nuno Espirito Santo has had a mixed start to life but would be hoping that Harry Kane can show the same kind of form for the Lilywhites that he has been providing for the England team. It could certainly ease some pressure from the Portuguese manager’s shoulders.
