Harry Kane is determined to take his chance and become an established member of the Tottenham Hotspur side.

The England Under-21 international continued his fine start to the season with his second Europa League goal of the season, netting in the 45th minute as Spurs beat Limassol 3-0 on Thursday.

It’s competition for places and I’ve got to take my chances whenever they’re given to me

Despite goalkeeper Pulpo Romero denying Kane from the spot in the sixth minute, the 21-year-old was satisfied with his performance after scoring in the first leg of the play-off in Cyprus last week.

“As a striker you want to be scoring goals every time you go on the pitch, so it was great to get it,” Kane said.

“Two in two starts now, so I’ve got to continue this form and see where it takes me. I feel like I’m not a kid anymore. I’m 21, so hopefully I can establish myself in this team now.

“We’re playing well together and looking forward to the games to come. When you’re scoring goals and you’re playing well you can’t wait for the next game to come, and that’s how I feel at the moment.

“I want the next game on the pitch to show everyone what I can do.”

Kane is facing competition from experienced striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Spain international Roberto Soldado for a starting spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line-up.

But the Chingford-born striker, who was named in England’s Under-21 squad on Thursday, is just happy to see Tottenham performing under their new manager.

“It’s competition for places and I’ve got to take my chances whenever they’re given to me. Ade’s doing well too – as a team we’re doing well and we’re pleased,” Kane added.

“I played No.10 last week and got my goal there, played No.9 this week and it’s a different sort of role and got my goal again. I’m happy doing both – as long as I’m on the pitch playing.”
