Harry Kane became the player with the most Boxing Day goals in Premier League history with his goal against Brentford, according to Premierleague.com.

The World Cup campaign ended in heartbreak for Kane and England as the striker’s penalty miss against France meant that the Three Lions were knocked out in the quarter-final stage of the tournament.

According to Alasdair Gold, the Tottenham man has come in for plenty of abuse from fans following his penalty miss, with the journalist revealing on his YouTube channel last week that the 29-year-old has been sent some ‘disgusting’ messages through the post.

Some may have had concerns over whether Kane would have been affected by the incident but the striker emphatically answered those questions with a brilliant header in the 64th minute against the Bees.

The goal was the Spurs star’s 13th of the Premier League season and it was also the tenth time he has found the back of the net on Boxing Day, thus moving past Robbie Fowler’s tally of nine and clinching the record.

Records will continue to tumble for Kane over the next few years and there is no doubt that he will finish with the most goals in Premier League history if he remains in England for the rest of his career. I see Kane continuing to play at the top level until his mid to late thirties and so, the striker still has plenty of time to pick up some silverware to supplement his legacy.
