Wayne Rooney: 'Harry Kane goals will come'

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney backs misfiring Spurs striker Harry Kane to rediscover his goalscoring touch shortly.

Wayne Rooney has backed England teammate and misfiring Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to set the Premier League alight once more this season.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a goal-laden breakthrough season last term, netting 31 times in all competitions, but Kane has so far struggled to hit those same heights after failing to score in any of his four Spurs games this season.

On Sunday, the young striker refuted claims that he was a one-season wonder, and Rooney - who became England's most prolific goalscorer of all time on Tuesday - is convinced that he will rediscover his goalscoring touch shortly.

"I always remember when I was younger, when you go through stages of not scoring, I always tried to do too much," the Manchester United hitman told The Telegraph.

"The thing to do is to keep it simple, keep doing the things you know and the chances will come and so will the goals.

"I was delighted when he scored. He has given the manager something to think about."

Despite struggling for the Lilywhites, Kane has continued to thrive at international level, netting in the 6-0 win over San Marino and Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Switzerland.
