PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It's not very often England score six goals and Harry Kane is not on the scoresheet. That was the case on Monday afternoon as the Three Lions started their World Cup campaign with a resounding 6-2 win over Iran. Iran's two late strikes may have taken a bit of the gloss off the victory but Gareth Southgate can be very pleased with their start to the tournament. One of the favourites to win the Golden Boot after his triumph in Russia four years ago, chances were at a premium for Kane in his 76 minutes on the pitch. He did, however, show another side of his game that Tottenham fans know about all too well. Perhaps maybe not known or fully appreciated for his incredible vision and range of passing outside of N17, it was on full show at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Closely marked by an opponent on the corner of the box, the England captain managed to find a yard of space to deliver a pinpoint cross that Sterling finished off expertly after getting ahead of his marker The Chelsea man will of course get the credit for the goal but his celebration said it all as he ran off and pointed at Kane for creating the opportunity for him. As good as the strike was from the attacker, the assist was just as impressive from the Tottenham star. "You know why he doesn’t look up? Because he’s a forward, when you’re up there you need the quality, just get the ball in the danger area. Great pass," said Alan Shearer at half-time in the BBC Studio.

." Kane was at it again 19 minutes from time as he plucked the ball out of the sky and played in the onrushing Marcus Rashford, who cut inside and finished off in style seconds after coming on. It was forward play at its very best as Kane demonstrated his hold-up play and quality to pick out the Manchester United man for his team's fifth of the afternoon. The goals may not have come for Kane in England's opener but he showed that he will be involved in them one way or another with his two assists. That in turn is only going to benefit the likes of Sterling and Saka who play off him in England's front three. The trio linked up extremely well and the chances are always going to be there for the Chelsea and Arsenal stars due to Kane's quality in the final third. Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski know very well what playing up front with Kane at club level brings and Sterling and Saka are going to discover that over the coming weeks if England go far. Winning the Premier League Golden Boot and Playmaker awards in 2020/21 after notching an incredible 23 goals and 14 assists in 35 league games, Kane has continued to assist his teammates with ten in 2021/22 and three this term in all competitions. While of course he will be fully focused on helping England go far and looking to keep hold of his Golden Boot, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him top the charts for assists going on what he produces for club and country. Kane is so much more than a goalscorer and more should be made of his remarkable range of passing and vision that he provides for Tottenham week in, week out. It may in fact be on the world's biggest stage where people finally stand up and take notice of the side of his game that is criminally overlooked.
