Despite Tottenham’s lackluster performance in a goalless draw at Burnley, Harry Kane is having the best week of his life.
The 21-year-old striker made his first-team debut for Roy Hodgson’s England side midweek against Lithuania, coming off the bench and scoring just 79 seconds into his shift.

When he returned to Tottenham from international duty, Kane was handed to captain’s armband for Spurs’ match against Burnley. With Hugo Lloris out injured, Kane became the youngest player to wear the armband in the Premier League this season.
Although Kane failed to score against Burnley and didn’t see much time on the ball, he was still grateful for the all that has happened in his career so quickly.
Yes you could say it has been the best week of my life – to score, to make my first start and score for England, and to be captain today.
It has been an unbelievable couple of weeks and one I won’t forget for the rest of my career.”
While this last week has been especially exciting for Kane, his season as a whole has been quite memorable. He is currently tied for the league-lead in goals with 19, and has tallied 29 times in all competitions. If Kane scores one more goal this season, he will become the first player to score 30 goals in a season for Tottenham since the great Gary Lineker in 1992.
