Euro 2020: Harry Kane can overcome goal drought in style this summer

Harry Kane has suffered a disappointing start to life at the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament, but the Tottenham forward has proved before that he is able to bounce back in style.

The England captain has failed to even register a shot on target in the first two games against Croatia and Scotland, nevermind scoring as he searches for his second successive international golden boot award.

Having secured the award in the 2018 FIFA World Cup during England's run to the semi-final, many had hoped that the Spurs striker would continue his international tournament form as England looked to go one further.

However, Kane and co have not quite lived up to expectations thus far, often looking bleak in attack with Raheem Sterling scoring the only goal of the tournament in England's 1-0 win over Croatia.

Despite securing an impressive result over the 2018 World Cup finalists in the first fixture, Gareth Southgate's side were left frustrated as they were held to a goalless draw against fierce rivals Scotland.

Ineffective throughout the match, Sky Sports gave Kane the lowest match rating of the game with a woeful score of 3/10.

Described as undroppable, Kane has been subbed off in both games at this summer's tournament.Whether he is carrying an injury or is distracted by transfer talk, Kane looks a shadow of himself at the moment.

Whatever the problem though Kane has proven on multiple occasions that he can silence his critics with goals and we are backing him to bounce back.

Kane's August curse

Kane is a goal machine. But when it came to playing in August for Spurs in previous seasons, he just could not find the back of the net.

In fact, it saw him pass 1,000 minutes of Premier League football in the month of August without a goal.

During Tottenham's first three games of the 2017/18 season which were all played in August, Kane was once again unable to get himself on the scoresheet.

A victory over Newcastle United had set Spurs up nicely for the season with goals from Dele Alli and Ben Davies. However, a defeat to Chelsea and a draw against Burnley saw Kane go three straight games without a goal..

Only a matter of hours into September and Harry Kane was back among the goals. After joining up with England for the following summer's World Cup qualifiers, Kane recorded an impressive brace against a defensively stubborn Malta side.

This did Kane the world of good as he got past his early season hoodoo showing his class for England once again.

Kane continued his form as he joined up with Tottenham for their Premier League fixture against Everton. Clearly with his barren run in August behind him, Kane added to his brace for England with yet another brace in a 3-0 hammering at Goodison Park on September 9, 2017.

A man now in form would silence his critics even further just days later on September 13, 2017, as Tottenham faced Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. One of Kane's finest performances for Spurs saw him guide his side to victory over the German giants with yet another brace.

Kane had now scored six goals in four appearances for both club and country since his goal drought making him one of the most in form forwards in Europe.

The England striker went on to record three more braces in his next four Premier League appearances, destroying any memories of his early season goal drought.

Kane finished the 2017/18 season as the Premier League golden boot runner-up behind Mohamed Salah, and was able to beat off competition from the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Antoine Griezmann for the 2018 World Cup golden boot.

Therefore, if that season is anything to go by, it is only a matter of time before Kane decides it is time to unleash his goal scoring beast. As shown throughout his career it can sometimes take Kane a couple of games to find his feet, but once he does, there is no stopping him.
