Tottenham striker Harry Kane says Oliver Skipp’s wonder goal against Chelsea was created on the training ground.
Handed another start in midfield with Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma currently on the sidelines, the England Under-21 international opened the scoring seconds after half-time with a thunderous strike from distance.
“It was great. First goal so it’s always a special one and to do it in that game it means a lot,” said the 22-year-old. “I think I cut across it slightly. It wasn’t completely clean but when it drops on the edge of the box we do a lot of work on getting those second balls. It just bounced up nicely so I thought I’d give it a hit.”
Kane, who completed the scoring with a goal from close range in the 82nd minute, delivered his verdict on his teammate’s strike and stated that the team’s work on the training pitch played its part in Skipp’s screamer.
“It was top quality wasn’t it,” said the England captain. “It was as good as you can hit them really. Like Skippy said, we work a lot in training on edge of the box finishing from second balls. He’s been working hard so nice to see it pay off.”
