Harry Kane trolls himself on Twitter over penalty miss

New, comments

That’s the way to handle it...

Harry Kane had a chance to give Spurs a 3-1 lead in the second half of their Premier League win over Southampton on Wednesday night. Dele Alli was hauled down in the box and Spurs had a penalty to increase their lead.

The normally clinical Kane stepped up to the spot and struck one of the worst penalty attempts of the season, blasting it way over the crossbar:

Not the greatest moment in the prolific striker’s career whatsoever. Instead of being mad about it and sulking, he took to Twitter to make fun of himself. In a comical tweet, he put out a call to all National Football League teams saying he could be their place kicker if needed:

It’s good that he’s got the confidence to joke about the miss instead of being hard on himself. Thankfully the incident didn’t play a factor in the outcome as Spurs went on to win handily after the embarrassing moment. We call all laugh about it now.
