He may be an unstoppable goal-scoring juggernaut of a striker these days, but it wasn’t very long ago that Harry Kane was struggling to convince anybody that he was going to be able to cut it at the tippy top level.

To that end, Rafael van der Vaart has shared his first impressions of Kane upon seeing the youngster training at Tottenham for the first time way back when.

Spoken with genuine fondness and admiration, the Dutchman freely admits he thought Kane was a bit… well, a bit shit.

Less than a decade on and Kane has scored no less than 150 goals since the start of the 2014/15 season, 15 for England and 135 for Spurs.

As anyone who saw him on loan at Leicester or Norwich early in his career will duly attest, it’s still a source of slight but constant surprise.

    Captain Kane! I heard he is trying to claim one the goals scored by Ronaldo against Spain. Then he would have 3 and Ronaldo only 2.
