Speaking about the goal after the match, Kane said, “It is probably one of the best goals of my career. I could see in parts of the game that the keeper was off the line. I thought if I get a chance to shoot, I’ll shoot. Thankfully it went in.”
Erik Lamela had scored the only goal of the first half, striking from close range in the 31st minute to give Spurs a 1-0 lead. Juventus substitute Gonzalo Higuain equalised in the 56th minute.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who had got the crowd roaring with an attempted overhead kick barely minutes into his first pre-season match, fired Juventus ahead 2-1 in the second half. Kane’s goal completed the comeback after Lucas Moura equalized for Spurs.

“It was a great goal. Unbelievable from Harry. It is good for him to set off pre-season with scoring,” said Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino.
