Harry Kane Shines in Spurs v. Man City Match

Tottenham Hotspurs forward, Harry Kane, became the club’s all-time top scorer on Sunday, 5 February.

The 29-year-old claimed the point 15 minutes into the 1-0 match against Manchester City, at his team’s home stadium in London, England. It marks Kane’s 267th goal, eclipsing Jimmy Greaves as the club’s previous top scorer.

“It’s quite surreal, a magical feeling to do it in front of the home fans and to win the game, I wanted to do it at this special place and in front of these amazing fans,” the England Captain said during the ensuing press conference.

The goal also happened to be Kane’s 200th for the English Premier League (EPL), making him the third-highest scorer in EPL history. Currently, only former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer (260 goals) and former Everton forward Wayne Rooney (208 goals) have scored more.

However, the Spurs forward is not ready to stop any time soon; “Alan has set the record to beat. I’ll see if I can beat it,” he told an international publication.

The match put Tottenham in fifth place on the EPL table, with 39 points – just one point below Newcastle in fourth place.
