Harry Kane, from the Premier League to the NFL
The captain and historic goalscorer of the Three Lions said Wednesday that he would like to play as a kicker in the National Football League.
“It’s something I definitely want to explore. The NFL is something I’ve been following for about 10 years and it fascinates me, so I’d love to try it,” said Tottenham triggerman Harry Kane about the possibility for changing football for football.
The English number nine played a part some publicity events for three games that the NFL will hold in England next season, two of which will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium; Jaguars-Bills, on October 8, and Ravens-Titans, on the 15th of the same month.
It is not the first time that the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner has expressed his desire to try his luck as a kicker in the NFL once his Premier League career ends. In 2020 he said he intends on giving it a shot within the next ten years which would mean around the age of 35 he could be pondering a switch to footy across the pond.
“I don’t expect to walk up and suddenly start kicking field goals. I know it’s going to take a lot of practice, a lot of hard work. But it’s definitely something I’d love to do”, he said at the Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 World Cups. Last year Harry Kane was present at the game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium , game in which he confessed his admiration for Tom Brady.
