Kane awarded Spurs second goal against Stoke after successful appeal
Tottenham Hotspur’s striker Harry Kane has been awarded his team’s second goal in their 2-1 victory against Stoke City after appealing to Goal Accrediditation Appeals Panel.
After being originally rewarded to Kane’s teammate, Christian Eriksen, the English International striker has appealed to Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel.
The Panel have released a statement confirming that Kane’s appeal has been accepted and the goal has been awarded to the 25-year-old hitman.
“The goal had originally been awarded on the day to Christian Eriksen, but after taking the player’s testimony into account and reviewing the match footage, a three-person panel agreed that the final touch on the ball belonged to Kane,” the statement read.
A number of players have expressed their shock from the decision including Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, English football’s legend Alan Shearer and even Salah himself along with a number of Liverpool players.
Harry Kane has raised his goal tally to 25 goals, to reduce the gap with the league’s top scorer Mohamed Salah to four goals, in their race for the golden shoe.
Spurs, who are looking to hold on fourth position, will host the league leaders Manchester City in the 33rd round of the English Premier League.
On the other hand, Liverpool, after their European success and their advance to UEFA Champions League semi finals, will face Bournemouth at the Anfield Stadium.
