​Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted furiously to Harry Kane being selected for England duty, following the player's abject performance in his side's 2-1 loss to Spain in their UEFA Nations League opener on Saturday evening.

Taking to social media, Spurs fans contended that Kane is looking off the pace following the 2018 World Cup, and needs time to recover, rather than being played in a friendly competition. Kane was presented with his World Cup Golden Boot before the game, after his six goals in Russia saw him pick up the coveted award.

Here's how Spurs fans reacted to their talismanic striker's display:

Certainly, Kane looked well off the pace as his side lost to a very impressive Spain side. The England captain is clearly as integral to Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate's plans as he is to his club's manager, Mauricio Pochettino, and could find himself running out of steam if he continues to exert himself throughout the season.

The 25-year-old is arguably in the prime of his career, having already notched up a hefty goals tally in his relatively short ​Premier League career. Since making his breakthrough in the 2014/15 season, Kane has increased his league goal tally every season, and netted on 30 occasions.

Meanwhile, ​Barcelona are believed to still be the frontrunners to sign Ajax prodigy Frenkie de Jong, despite ​Spurs reportedly having a big offer turned down to sign the Dutchman in January. The 21-year-old decided to stay with Ajax following their qualification for the Champions League group stages, but could well move to Barça in the near future.
