Fans immediately took to social media to suggest he had "stolen" a goal of Kane during the crucial clash at Wembley.

But thankfully for the Spurs striker, he got on the score sheet in the 85th minute to send England into the Uefa Nations League finals.

Kane was credited with a goal for Tottenham against Stoke last season following a successful appeal, despite appearing not to touch the ball.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the dramatic ending, Kane said: "It felt good. It’s been one of those spells for me personally where the keeper makes a save or the ball gets cleared off the line.

"The lads stuck at it at 1-0 down. We showed character, we stayed calm and deserved to win. It feels good.

"We were disappointed we didn’t take our chances but in games like this against big teams you just have to stay calm and try to play.

"We were creating chances and thankfully Jesse got on the end of one and we really pushed off from there and got the second.

"We said after the World Cup of course it was a great summer but we want to keep progressing and get better. The only way to do that is to win games against big opposition.
