Midway through the second half, Christian Eriksen put a free kick into Stoke’s box and on platter for Kane. The ball went into the net past Jack Butland, but in real time it was inconclusive as to who actually scored. The match went on, and Premier League review officials eventually said that Kane didn’t get the goal and it was awarded to Eriksen, his second of the game.
Here’s a replay of the goal, courtesy of NBC.
However, in post-match comments and on social media, Kane said that he actually did get a touch on the ball.
That goal, had it been given to Harry, would’ve been his 25th of the season in the Premier League and cut Mohamed Salah’s lead in the Golden Boot to four. I have no idea if calls like that can be overturned, but I’m willing to bet that Kane will use that as further motivation to get on the scoresheet next weekend in a big home match against presumptive Premier League champions Manchester City.
