Harry Kane’s goal against Borussia Dortmund proved not only to be a vital away goal for Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League second leg, but it also had equal significance for the forward.
When the striker superbly curled the ball beyond Roman Buerki just four minutes into the second half, it took Kane to the top of a prestigious list.
Harry Kane is now Tottenham’s all-time leading goalscorer in European competition.
The forward has overtaken Jermain Defoe in first place by netting his 24th goal and tops an impressive list of Spurs players from yesteryear.
Harry Kane – 24 goals
Jermain Defoe – 23 goals
Martin Chivers – 22 goals
Mark Falco – 13 goals
Alan Gilzean – 13 goals
Martin Peters – 13 goals
It is remarkable to think that at just 25, Kane has achieved the feat and could go on to easily double his tally in the next few years at the club.
