King Kane sets UCL record

Harry Kane set a new record by becoming the first player in history to score nine goals in his first nine Champions League matches.

The England international once again was in the headlines as his side fought back to settle for a 2-2 draw with Juventus. It was a poor start for Spurs, with just 9 minutes of play, Pochettino’s men were behind by 2 goals. However, Kane pulled one back for the north London club with a calm finish past Gianluigi Buffon in the 35th minute. Christian Eriksen ensured Spurs head into the second leg of the tie with the momentum with a brilliant free-kick to equalise in the 71st minute.

The 24 year old also equaled a Steven Gerrard record with his effort in the first-half. It took the Spurs star to seven goals in the Champions League this term, equaling Steven Gerrard’s record for an English player in the competition. The Liverpool legend scored seven goals back in 2008/09.
