Harry Kane’s Champions League record beaten comfortably by rising star


Harry Kane has already crossed plenty of milestones in his career due to his unbelievable consistency in finding the back of the net.

During Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, Kane set a record along with Son Heung-min for combining for the most goals in a single Premier League season (14) after his the striker’s second goal was set up the South Korean.

The England captain’s second goal on Sunday also meant that he became just the third player in the history of the Premier League after Robbie Fowler and Andy Cole to score more than 25 goals with his head, left foot & right foot.

There will surely be plenty of records to fall before the 27-year-old hangs up his boots including potentially Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goal record, Wayne Rooney’s all-time England goal record and Jimmy Greaves’ tally for Spurs.

However, one record that Kane can no longer boast of is being the quickest player to reach twenty goals in the history of the Champions League.

The striker’s record of reaching 20 Champions League goals in 24 appearances was beaten by Borrusia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, who netted a brace in the Bundesliga club’s 2-2 draw against Sevilla last night to reach the 20 goal mark in just 14 appearances.
