Having scored a wonderful header to put Tottenham in front against Southampton on Wednesday night, Harry Kane must have been licking his lips when given the opportunity to score a second goal from the penalty spot minutes later.
But the England international star had quite the moment to forget at St. Mary’s as he stepped up to unleash his spot kick.
Clearly made a fool of by the less-than-firm turf around the penalty spot, Kane proceeded to push the ball up into the air with the pressure of his left foot and completely sky the ball into space with his right. It was not the prettiest of moments, and it came much to the surprise of Tottenham’s darling Harry.
Fortunately for him though, the miss didn’t prove too costly, as Spurs went on to score another couple of goals and run out 4-1 winners.
Fans on Twitter couldn’t help but see the funny side of it, though…
And Harry Kane just auditioned for and NFL team as a field goal kicker! #SOUTOT

That was a dreadful penalty by Harry Kane. On the bright side if this were the NFL, that may have been a good field goal.
