Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane reflect on their goals for Tottenham Hotspur

Victor Wanyama’s goal against Liverpool on Sunday, without doubts, raised hopes for their unbelievable last minute equalizer, but the Kenyan professional footballer says he knew his goalless drought would be broken someday despite some insulting comments from teammates, and the day came with more blessings than expected.

Wanyama’s first goal for Spurs was voted England’s goal of the weekend. What a great inspiration for the Kenyan who featured for his country’s national team at the age of 15.

According to an online poll conducted by SkySportsl, Wanyama scooped 60 percent votes from fans, beating Egyptian, Mohammed Salah’s second goal that garnered 27 percent of votes.

Video of the 26-year-old’s beast-like, ferocious stunner driving into the Loris Karius net would have been nearly impossible if we didn’t see it for ourselves.

“It was a fantastic goal – it was the plan, no! I am so happy because he helps the team to achieve one point,” said Pochettino, who believes the spectacular performance and result were facilitated by hard work and confidence.

“He [Wanyama] has had a few shots in recent games and they’ve ended up near the corner flag so we told him not to shoot,” said Harry Kane, who grabbed a century of goals from his second spot kick.

“He’s proved us wrong!” Kane continued. “Fair play to him, he stuck it to us today. He’s produced one of the best strikes I’ve seen. I probably haven’t scored a better one than that to be fair!”

In his post-match interview, Wanyama, who previously played for Celtic and Southampton, said: “I’ve had a couple of shots when I’ve come on and the lads haven’t been happy with me and said I should stop shooting.

“I said ‘I will continue shooting and one day, one will end up in the back of the net’. That day was today.

“I’m really glad. You can shoot like that 100 times and maybe never score once, so I’m happy to score this time and help the team.”

“[On the game and Kane’s second penalty] It’s a difficult place to play,” the Kenyan footballer said, “they give us a tough time but as the game went on we got better and showed what we can do.

“It was a strange end to the game, we put a lot of pressure on them, they got one ball forward and scored so we were down 2-1 then Harry stepped up again and scored the penalty. I said for Harry to miss for a second time is impossible.”

“[On reaching 100 Premier League goals] Let’s just keep them coming,” Kane said.

“Prior to the season, I had an ambition to complete my 100 Premier League goals, and it’s a surprise that I did it earlier than I thought SO I’ll keep going and see how many I can get.”
