Kane scores from halfway line in Juve win

22nd July 2019, 02:51 by Michael Holland

Harry Kane scored from the halfway line as Tottenham beat Juventus 3-2 in the International Champions Cup.

With the score level and two minutes of added time on the clock, Juventus had possession on the halfway line but Spurs' pressing saw the Serie A giants dispossessed and it rolled into Kane's path.

The England forward did not hesitate, taking a stride towards the ball before surprisingly hitting it first time. The height and power on his hit was perfect and sailed over the head of former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who was sent scrambling as the ball hit the back of the net at the National Stadium in Singapore.

"I think it was a great goal," Pochettino said. "It's unbelievable from Harry. I think it is good for him to start the pre-season scoring. It wasn't the priority to win the game, but to compete in our best way and in the end to win is always better than not winning.

"We are happy with the performance but the most important thing is that we are happy that all the players finished in a good condition to train tomorrow and build step by step our fitness. This type of situation happens because of the quality of the player to see the position of the 'keeper.

"Sometimes you try and it's possible to touch the net, and sometimes you try and the goal is out. It's his talent that in that moment the ball arrived and he decided to shoot. It was a little bit lucky that the goal touched the net."
