Harry Kane failed to score as Tottenham Hotspur opened their new stadium against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, much to the chagrin of many fans.
The England captain started up front in the very first official Premier League game at the new stadium, but had to watch on as Son Heung-Min and Christian Eriksen scored the goals on a momentous evening for the club.
Roy Hodgson’s men were beaten 2-0 as Spurs regained the initiative in the race to qualify for the Champions League.
Kane, of course, scored in the final game at White Hart Lane as Manchester United were beaten 2-1, but he showed no signs of bitterness after his blank against the Eagles.
Writing on Twitter, he said: “What a feeling to play and win in our new home.”
And supporters are hopeful that he is merely saving his goals for next week when Spurs take on Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!

So wanted you to get the first ever goal there. Bit gutted if I’m honest but was great to be there and witness the first game. Well played to all the boys.
