Harry Kane has no concerns about his slow start to the season and is sure the goals will soon start to flow.

Tottenham and England striker Kane has not scored for club or country since his early goal against Turkey on May 22 during preparations for Euro 2016.

His goal drought continued on Sunday when England were indebted to a late Adam Lallana goal in a 1-0 win over Slovakia in Trnava.

But the 23-year-old says there is no worry on his behalf about a lack of goals, as his start to 2016-17 mirrors last season, when he failed to score in his first six Premier League games and ended the campaign with the Golden Boot after scoring 25 goals.

"Unfortunately there was a lot of talk last year and I managed to prove a lot of people wrong, so people will talk this year as well," Kane said.

"It's part of football. It's what they're doing. I am confident in my ability. I know that if I continue doing what I am doing the goals will come, that is all I can do.

"I think I didn't score in my first seven or eight games and then to go on and win the golden boot proves that it was just a matter of time.

"People might talk now or if I don't score in the next five or six games, it doesn't bother me. I am a confident player.

"I know if I keep doing what I am doing I will score goals and that is what I am going to do."

Kane was at the centre of a red card call on Sunday when he had his ankle trodden on by former Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel.

Martin Skrtel picked up his second yellow card for a stamp on Harry Kane. The sending off ended up being costly for Slovakia in a 1-0 defeat

But he said the nasty looking incident has not left him with any ill-effects, and he is confident of being available for Tottenham's first game after the international break, which comes against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

"The ankle is okay now," he added. "I will have a check on it and see if it's fully okay, but there were a few challenges that I felt could have earned him a yellow card but it didn't come.

"It was just a matter of time, it was a silly thing for him to do because he was on a yellow. The ref has seen it and I think it deserved another yellow card."
