Harry Kane scored yet another Champions League goal in Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Olympiacos this evening.
The England captain, who now has eight goals in as many games for club and country this season, coolly dispatched a 26th minute penalty to put Spurs in front – his 15th Champions League goal and 25th in total in Europe.
Kane now leads Tottenham’s all-time top goalscoring list in European competitions and is now two in front of former Tottenham striker and current Rangers forward Jermain Defoe.
And although the 26-year-old has endured a difficult start to the campaign for Spurs, epitomised by another quiet performance in Athens, his first-half strike made him the third fastest player ever to score 15 Champions League goals.
Those have come in just 20 appearances, a highly impressive record. And it means that only ex-Spurs flop Roberto Soldado and Ruud Van Nistelrooy have managed to achieve that feat in fewer games, just one less than Kane’s 20, in fact (19).
Check the impressive statistic below.
