It’s taken just eight minutes for Harry Kane to find the back of the net for Tottenham Hotspur on his return to Spurs’ starting lineup tonight.
The prolific striker is captaining the north London outfit in the second-leg of their Europa Conference League tie against Pacos de Ferreira, a day after he stated he’d be staying at the club after trying to exit.
It was another Harry, Winks in this case, who sparked opportunity for Spurs as the midfielder brilliantly shut down the hope of a Pacos counter with a lovely slide tackle on the left side.
Winks then looked up and took advantage of the Portuguese side, who had not regrouped after losing possession, by sending a pass through to Bryan Gil.
The promising summer signing took the ball into the box before drilling a pass into Kane, the star readied himself to control the powerful pass superbly as he slotted into the bottom corner from close range.

Nuno Espirito Santo will be absolutely delighted to see that the saga surrounding Kane hasn’t affected his composure in front of goal, he’ll be hoping that remains the case against Premier League opposition.
