Harry Kane (Tottenham), who is running toward the best striker ever in England, has left a monumental achievement in the history of the club.
Kane scored the winning goal in the 15th minute of the first half in the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) round 22 match against Manchester City (hereafter Man City) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th, leading the team to a 1-0 victory.
The goal scene came from just one counterattack situation. After Pierre-Emile Hoivier cut off the opponent’s pass in the Man City camp, he advanced to the penalty box and passed the pass to the right, and Kane, who was rushing through it, calmly finished it with his right foot.
Kane recorded 5 shots, the most among both teams that day, but only scored 1 goal. However, this one goal was enough for his team’s victory and his own record. 바카라
This goal was Kane’s 267th goal in the Tottenham uniform. With this, Kane became the player with the most goals in Tottenham history, surpassing Jimmy Greaves (266 goals), who reigned as the top goalscorer in the 1950s and 1960s. Kane achieved this record by playing 416 official matches for Tottenham alone from 2011, when he made his professional debut, to this day. He scored 200 league goals, 22 in domestic cup competitions and 45 in European club competitions.
After the match, Kane couldn’t hide his joy at rewriting history. In an interview with Sky Sports in the UK, he said, “Greaves is a hero. Being mentioned with one of the best strikers is a special experience. Exceeding his record is a huge thing for me,” he said, “It is a magical moment. I expected a record to come with a win. We achieved this in front of our home fans and we will never forget this moment.”
‘Soccer head’ England has countless legends. Among them, Kane is running towards the best goalscorer of all time. With this goal, Kane has scored 200 goals in the league alone since the EPL was launched in 1992, which is the third all-time following Alan Shearer (260 goals) and Wayne Rooney (208 goals). However, while Shearer played 441 games and Rooney played 491 games, Kane achieved it in 304 games, so the pace is much faster. At the current momentum, Shearer’s record breaking is also likely. In addition, Kane is jointly with Rooney for the most goals in A matches in England with 53 goals in his A match career, so it is only a matter of time before he becomes the top scorer alone.
