‘Amazing’: Oliver Skipp left stunned by one Tottenham player vs Portsmouth yesterday, says he’s ‘quality’
Tottenham Hotspur youngster Oliver Skipp has told the club’s official website that he was left stunned by Harry Kane’s goal against Portsmouth yesterday.
Spurs came through a difficult third round tie in north London and Kane’s brilliant second-half goal proved to be the difference for Antonio Conte’s side.
Tottenham struggled to create any clear-cut openings during the first-half but a moment of magic from their talisman booked their place in the fourth round.
The 29-year-old played a quick one-two with Ryan Sessegnon on the edge of the box before unleashing a shot into the top corner.
Skipp was full of praise for Kane after the game and feels the striker doesn’t even need half a chance to find the back of the net.
Skipp on Kane
The youngster spoke to Spurs Play after yesterday’s third round clash and was asked about Kane’s delightful goal.
“Amazing. His goal at Palace, quick finish and then the goal today,” Skipp said.
“He’s something you need, especially in those types of games when they are going to stick players behind the ball and make it difficult for us.
“We’re always delighted to have someone of his quality and we know, that wasn’t even half a chance really, give him a little bit of space and he will always deliver.”
Kane is now just one goal away from equalling Jimmy Greaves’ long-standing record at Tottenham. He’s now scored 265 goals for the club in all competitions and will have one eye on breaking the record against Arsenal next weekend.
“It’s incredible. Credit to him and how he performs in every game, we’re talking about a world-class striker,” Skipp added.
“We see it in training so it doesn’t surprise us as much as other people but it’s incredible that he’s on 265 and I’m sure he’ll get a few more before the season ends.”
Spurs were lacklustre in the first-half once again yesterday but certainly should have scored more than one in the second-half.
Emerson Royal saw his header rattle off the post, while Skipp himself missed a glorious opportunity to put his side two ahead.
Spurs fans will be hoping Kane can continue his brilliant goal scoring record against Arsenal next weekend and add to his tally of 17 goals this season.
