Harry Edward Kane (born 28 July 1993) is an English professional footballer. He plays as a striker for Tottenham Hotspur and the English national team.

Early life

Harry Edward Kane was born in Leytonstone, London. His father's name is Patrick Kane and mother's name is Kim Kane, both of whom are Irish. He has one elder brother, Charlie. When the family moved to Chingford, Harry attended Larkswood Primary Academy there until 2004, after which he started to study in Chingford Foundation School, in which David Beckham also studied. Kane described his childhood as:

I think the sporting genes come from my Mum's side of the family although the topic is a hot debate in the Kane household. Dad probably won't like me saying that, but I think my granddad Eric on my Mum's side was quite a good footballer, and played at a decent level.

Kane also said: "Most of my family were Spurs fans and I grew up 15 minutes from the ground, so I was always going to be a Spurs fan". He said that when he was a child he wanted to be like Teddy Sheringham, he thought of him as a "great finisher" and a role model because he scores a lot of goals.
