Tottenham’s Harry Kane on England and his goal at Brighton

Albion suffered their first home defeat in seven months after Harry Kane’s first-half goal secured Spurs victory.

But the English captain was full of praise for the gulls.

Kane produced a tender streak on Saturday after Son Heung-Min whipped in a dangerous cross for Kane to nod past Robert Sanchez.

The visitors had to work for the three points as Albion once again faced one of the top teams that controlled much of the game.

Kane said: “Brighton are a really good side.

“They also had their fair share of shots from the edge of the box, so just a really good three points overall.”

Albion have already faced four of the top 7 last season, winning at West Ham and Manchester United, drawing at Anfield and then putting Spurs to a real test.

They are certainly not a rollover for any page.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side consistently found good positions and put the Spurs defense’s focus to the test.

But they lacked that final pass or finish to put the ball past Hugo Lloris.

Matt Doherty had to defend himself really well against Leandro Trossard and then against Kaoru Mitoma.

The Irishman admitted Brighton took control in the second half.

He said: “We kind of lost control of our drive forward and invited them in, but we managed to just persevere.”

Despite a fine display from Danny Welbeck, the hosts lacked the killer instincts that Antonio Conte’s side had at the other end.

Kane had two chances throughout the game and scored one that ultimately secured the three points for his side.

The academy graduate scored his eighth goal in nine games this season, his best start to a Premier League season to date.

The forward said: “I feel good, obviously very nice to score in most games, especially when it turns out to be a winning goal like today. It’s always great to help the team in this way.”

Albion fans would have been devastated if they lost the game to a goal from Kane, but in December they are hoping he does the same in an England shirt.

The England captain said: “As a striker you want to be in a good rhythm before a big tournament, there have been times I’ve done it and times I haven’t and I still managed to, for England do well those moments.”

“‘The World Cup is going to be so close and fast and we have so many games ahead of it, I have to try not to think about it, but when it comes, hopefully it will be ready.”
