It wasn’t a centre-forward’s performance for the ages, and Harry Kane might well be disappointed with his personal showing for England in their win over Croatia in their Euro 2020 opener.
However, his former manager at Tottenham, Jose Mourinho, was completely satisfied with the contribution.
The Portuguese, speaking to talkSPORT, suggested that Kane’s movement helped to carve out the only goal of the game, and his intelligence, often overlooked, makes him one of a rare breed of striker that can also play as a No.10 or even a midfielder.
“Harry did half of the job without even touching the ball. It’s his movement.”
“Harry is the kind of striker that could be a striker, a No.10 or even a midfielder.”
