In the final pre-season friendly before the start of the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur secured an impressive 5-1 victory against Shakhtar Donetsk, with Harry Kane taking the spotlight by scoring four goals. Despite uncertainties surrounding his future at the club due to Bayern Munich’s interest and only one year remaining on his contract, Kane captained the team for the match.

The game was also significant as it marked Ange Postecoglou’s first match as the new boss in front of Tottenham’s home supporters at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The team had previously played two friendlies during a tour of Asia. The performance put on by Kane left fans hoping that it wouldn’t be a farewell showcase, as he demonstrated his clinical skills and proved his value to the team.

Kane’s scoring spree began with a penalty after a foul on James Maddison. Later, Maddison provided a precise cross that Kane headed in for his second goal. The promising link-up between the two players suggests great potential if Kane decides to stay at the club. Kane completed his hat-trick with a goal resulting from a well-placed pass by Dejan Kulusevski. His fourth goal came as he tapped in a rebound from a shot by Manor Solomon.

The match ended with a fifth goal scored by Dane Scarlett in stoppage time, contributing to a charity initiative raising funds for Ukraine amidst the ongoing Russian invasion.

As the Premier League campaign approaches, Tottenham fans eagerly await news about Kane’s future with the club. The team’s first league game is scheduled against Brentford on 13 August.
