By Tottenham correspondent Tony Hughes
Harry Kane scored a sensational goal to lay the foundations for England’s comeback win against Germany – and Twitter instantly compared him to the late, great Johann Cruyff.
Roy Hodgson’s side came from two goals down to beat the world champions 3-2 in a thriller in Berlin on Saturday night.
Kane paved the way for England’s comeback at the hour mark when he produced a neat Cruyff turn inside the box on the right channel and then banged the finish into the bottom corner of the net.
An equally outrageous goal from substitute Jamie Vardy levelled the scores after 74 minutes before Kane’s Spurs team-mate Eric Dier capped a memorable fightback with a bullet header in the last minute.
The spirit and skill of England’s youthful team was captured in the instant feedback of supporters on social networking site, as Kane was compared to Dutch great Cruyff, who died of cancer on Thursday.
What a comeback! Germany were completely dominant until Harry Kane’s Cruyff tribute, looked a completely different team since then.

England’s come back vs Germany one of the best friendlies I’ve seen. Also fitting that Kane used a Cruyff turn to score the first.
