After scoring for Bayern Munich against Darmstadt yet again, Harry Kane has created a new record in the Bundesliga.

The captain of the Three Lions scored Bayern’s second goal against Torsten Lieberknecht’s team on Saturday, as the defending champions defeated them 5-2.

After Thomas Tuchel’s team fell behind early in the game, goals from Serge Gnabry, Mathys Tel, and Jamal Musiala ensured the win. Kane broke the record for the most goals scored in a Bundesliga rookie season when he scored in the 45th minute.

The former Spurs player has already reached his best-ever total during a single league season with his current total of 31.

Before leaving the Lilywhites in August 2023, the 30-year-old scored 280 goals in 432 games. Since then, Kane has kept up his incredible goal-scoring for Bayern, amassing an incredible 36 goals in 34 games across all competitions.

The former Tottenham forward also scored a hat-trick last week as Tuchel’s team defeated Mainz 8-1 in Bundesliga play.

In addition, England manager Gareth Southgate has summoned him up as the Three Lions get ready to play Brazil and Belgium in back-to-back internationals the following week.

Some had speculated that Kane would find it difficult to adjust to life at the Allianz Arena after departing so late in the transfer window.

That being said, Southgate has shown complete confidence in the Munich player and feels that a well-established career can only improve England’s chances this summer.

“From a selfish England perspective, it’s good that his future is settled now for the next few years,” he said.

“Potentially that can be a distraction for players. But also it’s good for him that he’s got to go and perform at a new club now. He’s been at one club for so long.

“To have a change means you’ve got to impress new teammates, new staff, new fans and also there’s the life experience of adjusting to a new country.

“There’s a lot of positives there.”
