Before he walked up to take a penalty against Real Madrid, Harry Kane disclosed what Jude Bellingham actually said to him.

In Bayern Munich’s 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first-leg match on Tuesday, Kane scored from the penalty spot.

With aplomb, he slotted past Andriy Lunin to make it 2-1 and create a new record for the Champions League.

But Bellingham, an international teammate, attempted to dissuade the star forward before he could put the ball in the goal.

He claimed to TNT Sports that he witnessed him “mumbling something” while he was in the zone.

“I don’t know what he was saying. I saw him mumbling something,” he said.

“Once I’m in that moment, I’m in my zone, trying to block everyone out. I’m sure he was saying something to try to put me off.”

However, before Kane left the Allianz Arena, he revealed what Bellingham really said to him.

In the mixed zone, the 30-year-old added: “In the moment, I didn’t know what he said but I spoke to him after and he said: ‘I know you’re going to go left of the keeper’.

“But it was nice for me because I saw the keeper go a little bit early and I put it away. Actually, on the pitch, I didn’t know what he said. I knew he was there, but I didn’t know what he said. But I went left anyway.”

Kane’s penalty gave his team the lead, but with seven minutes remaining, Vinicius Junior, who had opened the score, equalized it at 2-2.

The England captain is having an incredibly productive first season in Germany, increasing his season goal total to 43.

Next Wednesday, when Bayern plays Real in the second leg of the Champions League, he will try to lead his team to the championship.

Since he gave up the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen, this is Kane’s only opportunity to win a significant prize this season.
