By Abdulkabir Olatunji The Europa League semifinal draw has just…
Harry Kane has been awarded what seems like a dubious goal after the Premier League Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel awarded him Tottenham Hotspur’s 2nd goal against stoke over the weekend.
The ball seemed to have gone in without anybody touching it from Christian Eriksen’s free kick but Harry Kane claimed to have scored it on the pitch and after the game telling the press:
“I swear on my daughter’s life that I touched the ball, but there’s nothing I can do,” he added.
“If they turn it around, they turn it around. If they take my word, they take my word.
“It is what it is – the most important thing is that we won the game.”
See the goals from the match next but pay attention to Tottenham’s 2nd goal
Spurs appealed the initial award of the goal to Christian Eriksen and today’s decision means Kane now has 25 goals moving just 4 goals behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah who has 29 goals in the race for the EPL’s highest goal scorer this season.
The Egyptian reacted to the decision on Twitter thus:
Wooooooow really ?
Football fans on Twitter have not taken kindly to the decision slamming Kane for chasing personal glory at the expense of his team mate. See their tweets next:

The dubious goals panel unanimously agreed to give the goal to Kane in the hope he'd stop ringing them, leave their HQ, and grow up.

I like Harry Kane as a player, but he’s lost my respect after this ‘claim’ for his goal. One of the reasons why Tottenham will never win anything. On other hand Salah wanted Ings to score so bad he looked disappointed when he couldn’t score and Salah had to score rebound.

Harry Kane begged the FA to give him Eriksen's goal, swearing on his daughter's life in the progress.

If I was Christian Eriksen I’d be fuming, imagine having someone as sly and as selfish as Harry Kane in your team
