Harry Kane had a day to forget this Saturday, December 10, because he missed a penalty that could have been England’s draw against France, an action that, for sure, he will regret for a long time because he will no longer be able to play the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
But leaving aside this bad episode in the World Cup, there is a very striking fact in the career of the Tottenham attacker, given that, on several occasions, he has stated that after his time in football he wants to be a kicker in the NFL.
And the most recent thing he said was in an interview with ESPN FC, in which he mentioned that, in 10 or 12 years, he plans to get into the NFL industry, he was even bold in saying that he could be the best of this company.
“The desire to play in the NFL is real. Something that in 10 or 12 years I definitely want to try. It’s about the will to be the best. Even if I download a game on my phone, can I be the best in the world? If you play in the Premier League and the Cup and then play in the NFL, would you be considered one of the greatest sportsmen of all time?”
Harry Kane admires Tom Brady
But not only that, but the 29-year-old attacker also said that he admires Tom Brady very much because he stressed that both he and the NFL icon had a similar path to reach the elite, given that many thought they were not going to be the best in their disciplines.
“I started watching it on YouTube. We had a similar path that was questioned when we were young. Maybe we weren’t the best athletes when we were kids. He was a great inspiration. Few people thought he would become so good, or even play in the NFL, and he turned out to be the greatest of all time. At that moment, it gave me an impetus to say, look, anything is possible. If you have self-confidence, energy and hunger, you can,” he said.
