Harry Kane Compared To Tom Hanks For His Dive Vs Wolves
Harry Kane was criticised for 'diving' against Wolves on Sunday night, so much so that one commentator even compared him to Tom Hanks.
Jose Mourinho's side took an early lead through Tanguay Ndombele but failed to add to their lead before Romain Saiss equalised late on, to earn the hosts a point.
Late in the game Kane attempted to get his side back ahead as he ran onto a ball into the box but tumbled to the ground under pressure from Saiss.
No foul was given and Kane also wasn't booked for diving, but clearly the commentator on beIN Sports wasn't impressed as he referred to the England captain as 'Tom Hanks,' for all his acting.
Best thing about tonight is the beIN arabic commentator calling Harry Kane 'Tom Hanks' for his constant acting and diving- Osman (@OsmanZtheGooner) December 27, 2020
Shock horror #kane diving yet again, but I wonder if the media including @BBCMOTD will still call him clever! Seems if your England captain you can do what you want! That dive is utterly embarrassing. England captain and kids will be looking at that! Imagine it that was salah :eyes:- ian wayne (@Ianwayne22) December 27, 2020
Many players dive (including my own team, Wolves) and I hate when they do, but Harry Kane takes it to another level. Why does such a good player have to be such a wanker. #totwol He's helping to ruin a once great sport. And the pundits don't rip him and others to bits. Shocking.- Richard Ralph (@TheDowg) December 27, 2020

Kane dives and Alan Smith says it's the only option he has??? I mean WTF?? How about calling him out on it and say why does Kane feel the need to dive?- Rob (@goonerrtw) December 27, 2020
Absolutely spot on! Harry Kane is a cheat. Constantly going to ground and looking at the ref for support. It seems it's acceptable to dive if your the England captain .- ian mahon (@idmahon) December 27, 2020
After the match Mourinho criticised his players for lacking ambition, "I am frustrated with the result, we had control of game, we had 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn't," the Spurs boss said.
"It's not just about not scoring but also not being dangerous and ambitious and for me that's the problem.
"But I don't think is very, very obvious to go in that direction and not to go in other directions. The other direction for me is you score a goal in the first minute, you have 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn't.
"It's disappointing (to concede as they did) and tomorrow we are going to have a similar meeting of other meetings we've had and we're going to practise the same thing we practised that we have after other situations. But we have 89 minutes to score more goals."
