‘What he’s done’ – Ian Wright says Tottenham man has fully changed his game now

Ian Wright has hailed Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane for his maturity and the way he has accepted a new role to help England’s other attackers, writes the TBR.

The Spurs striker finally broke his duck with a fine goal against Senegal this week. He has now been directly involved in four goals in as many games at the World Cup, which is a fantastic return.

Before the game against Senegal, Kane received a bit of criticism for his lack of goals.

The Englishman hasn’t been bad at all in this World Cup, but as all strikers are, he was judged on the number of times he found the back of the net.

That, however, felt a bit harsh as Kane has been brilliant. The way he has dropped deep to link play up and create chances for his teammates has benefitted England massively, and Wright has hailed that change in his game.

The Arsenal legend claimed that Kane has now accepted the fact that he will get criticised by people for not scoring as many goals as before. But, he believes the Tottenham man just does not care anymore because he of the ‘maturity in his head’.

He said on the Wrighty’s House podcast this week: “You look at Harry Kane’s maturity in his head – ‘Yeah I’ve not scored (but) I’m not bothered.’

“That was clinical what he’s done.

“Honestly, he has kind of accepted that ‘I’m going to get battered about it but I’m going to keep the ball at all costs because I’ve got people beyond me.’
