Tottenham's official account tweet four words after Kane's brilliant assist vs Iran
England couldn’t have asked for a better start to their World Cup campaign, going three goals up against Iran in the first-half.
Spurs have contributed two players to the England squad this month.
The centre-back wasn’t selected in the starting XI for the opening game, with Southgate deciding to go with a back-four.
Tottenham’s other player in the team is of course England’s captain Harry Kane.
Kane surprisingly wasn’t on the scoresheet in the first-half, but wasn’t kept out of the game completely.
England’s number nine delivered a pinpoint pass to Sterling for England’s third and Tottenham’s account loved Kane’s assist.
It was Kane’s first assist at a major tournament for England.
He last recorded an assist for England in their 5-0 win over Albania 12 months ago in qualifying.
Tottenham’s Twitter loved Kane’s assist
As soon as the goal went in, Tottenham’s official account simply said: “That assist from Harry”.
Fans of other clubs have feared Kane’s playmaking abilities but can enjoy his work once he puts on an England shirt.
Tottenham have been benefitting from Kane’s ability on the ball for a number of years now.
His partnership with Son Heung-min is the most lethal combination in Premier League history.
Kane only has one assist for Spurs this season, coming in the 3-2 Champions League victory against Frankfurt.
He was singled out for praise after the match by Antonio Conte, but his goal scoring has taken most of the headlines this season.
Kane has even been applauded by Neymar, who is a big fan of the 29-year-old.
Tottenham’s Twitter account, as well as every England fan, loved Kane’s assist for Sterling.
If they can continue to combine like that in Qatar, who knows how far England can go.
