Harry Kane has already dominated one form of football. Could he do it again…this time, across the pond?
Tottenham’s all-time leading goal-scorer reiterated his desire to boot balls in the NFL at some point after his career in an interview with Fox’s Tom Rinaldi. Kane, 29, is one of world football’s biggest stars, a gifted playmaker and goalscorer.
He’s also a die-hard NFL fan, one who has kept up with the game for years. Kane has been a regular fixture at NFL London games in the past, even popping up at his home ground to watch the Vikings beat the Saints at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this year.

Kane is a known Tom Brady stan, a point he reaffirmed in his discussion with Rinaldi.
Before Harry Kane became one of the greatest soccer players in the world, he found inspiration from @TomBrady

It wasn’t the first time Kane has shrouded praise on Tom Terrific. In fact, Kane noted that Brady’s understated route to football greatness — from a sixth-round pick to seven-time Super Bowl winner — was one he molded his own journey after. After all, Kane was once just an unknown striker languishing on loan in the Championship, someone who didn’t seem likely to reach the upper echelons of European soccer.
For what it’s worth, Kane isn’t exactly lacking in pigskin experience, either. He’s taken part in a number of football-related drills, including this one with former Giants safety Landon Collins.
He’s also shown a propensity for splitting the ball through the uprights, something he showcased during one of Tottenham’s training sessions back in the day.
Perhaps NFL fans will get a chance to see the star striker make plays on the gridiron.
