Kane fires Spurs into FA Cup fourth round
Harry Kane fired Tottenham past third-tier Portsmouth and into the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
Antonio Conte rang the changes for Spurs for the match against League One Portsmouth but retained a heavyweight forward line including Kane and Son Heung-min.
The in-form Kane broke the deadlock in the 50th minute, receiving the ball on the edge of the box and bending a fine curled effort past the despairing dive of Josh Griffiths.
Kane, with four goals in four matches since missing the penalty against France that led to England's elimination at the World Cup, now has 265 goals for Spurs -- just one behind the club's all-time record scorer, Jimmy Greaves.
Spurs, who have won the FA Cup eight times, were unable to add to their tally but saw out the match fairly comfortably to win 1-0.
"It was a tough game," Kane told the BBC. "We were clear favourites and people probably expected a bigger score but credit to them, they stayed compact and made it difficult."
The 29-year-old said he was trying not to focus on overtaking Greaves.
"I try to not think about it," he said. "Sometimes you can think too much. Obviously I feel in good form and I feel fit. My mindset is to help the team and hopefully the goals will come."
