Harry Kane broke his nose in Tottenham's FA Cup defeat against Crystal Palace
White hot: Kane is in line to start for England this summer after another fine season

By Matt Farr

Former England forward Rodney Marsh has demanded an apology on Twitter for criticism of his comments about Tottenham goalscorer Harry Kane.

Marsh felt the wrath of football fans two years ago by claiming during Kane’s breakthrough season two years ago that he was worth £100million.

He also insisted that he was a much better player than Angel Di Maria, who had struggled to impress for Manchester United following his £60million move that season.

However, after Kane played a starring role during Tottenham’s thrashing of Stoke in the Premier League encounter on Sunday, Marsh took to his personal Twitter account to demand an apology.

Kane bagged three goals and an assist  – all in a blistering first-half onslaught – as Tottenham recorded a comfortable 4-o victory over Stoke at White Hart Lane, and Marsh stated he was standing by his £100million valuation of the player.

The hat-trick was Kane’s third in only his last nine appearances for the club, continuing the 23-year-old’s rise as one of Europe’s most prolific goalscorers.

The England international now has 22 goals from 27 appearances in all competitions this term, picking up where he left off the previous season with 28 goals from 50 matches.

He has now scored an incredible 86 goals from 153 appearances for Tottenham, since making his Premier League debut for the club in the 2012-13 season.
