We ask the question that every single English fan and Spurs supporter has been wondering for the last five years, is it possible for Harry Kane to improve?
Even if England and Tottenham Hotspur’s skipper Harry Kane is already considered one of the top strikers in the world if not the best, there is still a lot of doubt about the real level of performance he could reach because he is still only 25 years of age. This past World Cup performance really brought out some of the best qualities that Kane has as a leader and a centre-forward, but during the most crucial matches, he still wasn’t able to produce the key moment that could define the outcome of the game in his team’s favor. As we all know in the past since he began playing for Tottenham Hotspur, Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino already compared the Englishman to the qualities of Brazilian legend Ronaldo, which is a really exaggerated statement because Harry Kane is still far away from the same level this striker had back in the nineties decade. But we are certain that Mauricio Pochettino meant to make this comparison as a provocation rather than a rash assessment, Kane is a striker for his club after all.
But this brings out the question, is Harry Kane really capable of producing moments of brilliance at the very top level against the toughest of opponents? We believe he can but there is a certain number of obstacles the England skipper first needs to get past in his career. The next five years will be crucial for Harry Kane to grow as a striker and improve many of the trades he already has, as well as learn some new tricks that we are sure already practices every day in training because he is that kind of player. To those who didn’t know about this, Harry Kane is a football nerd, one of the most obsessed players of the sport who is destined to stay linked to it one way or the other. So it’s only natural that he thinks about getting on par with the best players in the world, but Kane remains grounded on the possibility. Harry Kane was questioned this Friday about the chance of being at the same level as Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, he obviously responded with modesty.

“I think it’s hard to compare with them two, I said before those two set the standard in football over the last ten or so years. I don’t think I’m up there with them yet. That’s my aim, I aim to improve. This summer was great but it’s on to more things and can I improve. All I’ll be thinking about is trying to score. I listen to Michael Owen talking about it, the Balon d’Or being presented before the game, and all he wanted to do was get on the pitch and score. That’s how a lot of us professional footballers work. I’m very proud to get that, but all I’ll be thinking about is what I can do in the game tomorrow. That hunger is all that’s important. But team trophies are the main thing for me. We haven’t won one since 1966 so for any England players that’s their aim, to bring a major trophy home. I want to play for England for next 10 years and have many more big tournaments,” said Kane in front of the press ahead of England’s Nations League match against Spain this Saturday.

Kane’s new football boots, an homage from Nike to Harry.
For this match against the Spanish National Team, Harry Kane and England do not rest after reaching the last World Cup semifinals and will have to compete again in a very complicated match against a renovated Spain managed by Luis Enrique. Getting the World Cup’s Golden Boot award was a great honor for Harry Kane and the sportswear brand that represents him made an exclusive golden pair of boots that he will wear for that match on Saturday. The pair in question is a special edition of the Hypervenom Phantom III Elite, which has a lot of interesting details that describe Harry Kane’s World Cup success as the tournament’s top scorer. But the question still remains, Kane can improve without question but we are still wondering if he can get to those legendary status levels that could take him to win a major trophy for either his club or his country. We’ll find out soon enough.
