Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was praised for his heroics yesterday after his last-gasp goal secured a 2-2 draw against West Ham, with the Lilywhites coming from two goals down in the second-half.
Harry Kane saw his injury-time penalty saved but the ball came straight back out to him, allowing him to tuck away his ninth league goal of 2015- meaning Lionel Messi is the only player in Europe’s top five leagues to score more goals domestically this term.
It also secured Tottenham’s 16th point of the season in the final ten minutes, keeping them well in the running for the battle for a Champions League place. However, some fans weren’t happy with his alleged dive.

Harry Kane is so good that when he takes a penalty he plays a one-two with the keeper before scoring.

95:57 – Harry Kane’s goal vs West Ham was the second latest scored in the PL this season (after Skrtel vs Arsenal, 96:05). Drama.

I lost a little respect for Harry Kane. I don’t like divers. No matter how talented. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
