A look back at Harry Kane's milestone goals
Wed 11 November 2020, 18:24|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane reached the landmark of 200 Spurs goals in last Thursday’s Europa League triumph over Ludogorets.
Going into the clash in Bulgaria on 199 goals, it took Harry just 13 minutes to find that milestone 200th strike in our colours as he planted home Lucas Moura's corner with a header. In our next outing, he added goal number 201, the winner in Sunday's 1-0 triumph over West Brom, as he continued his potent start to the season. In 14 games this year, the marksman has notched up 13 goals already while has also shown his creativity with 10 assists for his team-mates.
His goalscoring exploits have put him hot on the heels of Bobby Smith, our legendary striker from the 1960s, who sits just in front of Harry in our all-time scoring charts on 208 goals. Jimmy Greaves still leads the way with a total of 266 Spurs goals.
To mark Harry’s latest Club milestone, we take a look back at some of his landmark goals...
15 December, 2011 - Shamrock Rovers 0-4 Spurs - UEFA Europa League
Kicking-off the list of Harry’s goalscoring milestones is his first ever strike in a Spurs shirt. Coming almost nine years ago and in the homeland of his grandparents, our number 10 was just 18 years old when he tucked home Andros Townsend’s knockdown in a comprehensive victory on the outskirts of Dublin. This was also the striker’s first of 36 goals so far in European football.
First goal at White Hart Lane
30 October, 2013 - Spurs 2-2 Hull City (8-7 on penalties) - League Cup
Having spent the following two years after that maiden goal gaining first-team experience out on loan with Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City, it wasn’t until the autumn of 2013 that Harry fired home Spurs goal number two - his first at White Hart Lane.
We'd beaten Hull three days earlier in a Premier League clash at the Lane thanks to a late Roberto Soldado penalty, and once again the Tigers proved a stubborn side to get past when we met in the League Cup fourth round. Taking us to extra-time after a Brad Friedel own-goal had cancelled out Gylfi Sigurdsson’s opener, Paul McShane then gave our visitors the lead. Yet, with just 12 minutes remaining, Harry then stepped up to score and send the tie to penalties. Eighteen were taken in total, our number 10 confidently dispatching his, but Hull's Ahmed Elmohamady failed to convert his spot-kick in sudden death which sent us through to the quarter-finals.
First Premier League goal
7 April, 2014 - Spurs 5-1 Sunderland - Premier League
Six months later and Harry had his first goal in English football’s top flight. Sunderland had taken a surprise lead in the clash at the Lane through Lee Cattermole, but it didn’t take us long to get back on terms through Emmanuel Adebayor. Then Harry, on his first league start for us, turned the game on its head as he deftly finished off Christian Eriksen’s delivery to put us in front. The creative Dane then added a third, Adebayor grabbed a second for himself before Gylfi Sigurdsson wrapped up the night as he flicked home the fifth late on.
23 October, 2014 - Spurs 5-1 Asteras Tripolis - UEFA Europa League
Harry’s first hat-trick for us came in Europe in a match jam-packed with iconic moments. In the second 5-1 win on this list so far, our number 10 opened the scoring on 13 minutes as he drilled an effort from 25 yards into the bottom corner. Erik Lamela then took the headlines as he struck with his most memorable of Spurs goals to date - that glorious ‘Rabona’ - on 30 minutes, before he volleyed home his second of the evening, mid-way through the second half.
Harry was then alert to tap home his second with 15 minutes to go before completing his hat-trick six minutes later with a header. The evening wasn’t over for the forward quite yet though as just three minutes from time, he swapped the front line for the goal-line as, following Hugo Lloris’ sending off, Harry stepped up to replace our skipper between the sticks for the game's final moments, although he couldn't keep out the visitors' late consolation.
First north London derby goal
7 February, 2015 - Spurs 2-1 Arsenal - Premier League
Harry Kane has scored 10 goals in 11 league games against our north London rivals - and the first two of those came in his maiden encounter with the Gunners back in 2015. Arsenal had taken the lead in the game through Mesut Ozil, but Harry fired us level as he reacted quickest to slot home the rebound from Jan Vertonghen’s saved header. Then, with just four minutes remaining, the striker timed his leap superbly to nod home Nabil Bentaleb’s cross and send the Lane into utter delirium.
10 January, 2016 - Spurs 2-2 Leicester City - FA Cup
Taking on Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup, we required the help of Harry off the bench to take the tie to a replay. We had got in front in the encounter at the Lane in the early stages through Eriksen, but the soon-to-be Premier League champions came back at us with Marcin Wasilewski bringing the game level, before Shinji Okazaki fired the visitors in front. With just over 20 minutes to go, Harry was substituted into the game and he delivered the necessary goal to keep us in the tie. Nathan Dyer was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box and our number 10 duly rifled home from the spot.
First Champions League goal
22 November, 2016 - AS Monaco 2-1 Spurs - UEFA Champions League
Harry is our all-time top goalscorer in the UEFA Champions League with 20 goals in just 24 appearances. His first came in just his second outing in the competition as we travelled to AS Monaco. It didn’t go our way in the European principality as Monaco ran out winners, but Harry still managed to find the target as he converted from the penalty spot at Stade Louis II.
First Spurs goal as captain
19 February, 2017 - Fulham 0-3 Spurs - FA Cup
Leading from the front as our skipper for the day, Harry scored all three goals as we cantered into the sixth round of the FA Cup with victory over Fulham. Sixteen minutes in, the striker clipped home Eriksen's cross before the pair repeated that trick eight minutes into the second half to double our advantage. Dele then stepped in as the provider as he slotted the ball in for Harry to run onto and curl home for his hat-trick.
100th career goal
26 February, 2017 - Spurs 4-0 Stoke City - Premier League
Harry’s 100th career goal came as he fired home another treble. Taking on Stoke City at White Hart Lane, the striker scored all three of his goals within 23 minutes. He lashed the first into the far corner of the net on 14 minutes, hit the second on the half-volley from the edge of the box before he rolled home off Eriksen’s free-kick from 30 yards, with a slight deflection, to complete his hat-trick. Then, the marksman turned provider for Dele, crossing in for his fellow England international to lash home from close range.
100th Spurs goal
9 September, 2017 – Everton 0-3 Spurs – 9 September, 2017
Harry’s 100th Spurs goal came in rather strange circumstances. On a sunny day in Merseyside, the striker caught out goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with his cross-shot to give us the lead at Goodison Park. Eriksen then doubled our lead before Harry turned home Ben Davies’ cross in the second period for goal number 101 to wrap up a comfortable win over the Toffees.
Spurs' record Premier League goalscorer
13 January, 2018 - Spurs 4–0 Everton – Premier League
In a dominant performance against Everton at Wembley, Harry scored a double to take him clear of Teddy Sheringham and become our record goalscorer in Premier League history. Heung-Min Son had opened the scoring for us in the first half, tapping home on 26 minutes, before he turned provider for Harry two minutes into the second half for the striker to equal Teddy’s record with his 97th Premier League goal.
Then, 11 minutes later, the striker then went one better as he turned in Eric Dier’s teasing cross from close range to make him our outright highest goalscorer in Premier League history with 98 strikes to his name. The 4-0 win over the Toffees was then wrapped up by an Eriksen goal late on.
100th Premier League goal
4 February, 2018 – Liverpool 2-2 Spurs – Premier League
Very soon after overtaking Sheringham to become our record goalscorer in the Premier League, Harry entered the competition’s 100 club with a goal against Liverpool. In an action-packed game at Anfield, our hosts had taken the lead within just three minutes through Mo Salah, but we rallied after that early setback and took the game to the Reds.
Chance after chance came for us before an unforgettable rocket from Victor Wanyama brought us level with 10 minutes left. We then missed a great chance to win the game as Loris Karius saved Harry’s penalty, only for Liverpool to go down the other end and retake the lead in injury time – a second for Salah. But, Harry would come to our rescue deep, deep into added time as we were awarded another penalty and, from the spot, our number 10 made no mistake as he slotted home our equaliser and his 100th goal in the Premier League.
150th Spurs goal
6 November, 2018 - Spurs 2-1 PSV Eindhoven - UEFA Champions League
Perhaps one of the most dramatic and important goals from Harry in his Spurs career to date was his winning goal against PSV Eindhoven in 2018. Taking on the Dutch outfit in an all or nothing Champions League clash at Wembley, we knew we needed a positive result after picking up just one point from our first three group stage games. Against PSV, however, it started in the worst possible way as after just two minutes the visitors were in the lead through Luuk de Jong.
A catalogue of chances then came our way but we just couldn’t find a way through the Dutch side’s defence - until the 78th minute. Fernando Llorente was key, teeing up Harry as he rifled home for goal number 149. Then, with just a minute to go, our number 10 got the winner, number 150, as he headed home to keep our European hopes alive in a season where we went on to reach the final.
Spurs' all-time top European goalscorer
5 March, 2019 - Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Spurs - UEFA Champions League
Progressing into the next round of the 2018/19 Champions League via a second-place finish in the group stage, we were handed a tough draw in the round of 16 as a two-legged tie with German league leaders Borussia Dortmund stood between us and a place in the quarter-finals. Yet, as it played out, we ended up breezing past the German side with outright victories in both legs.
In the home tie, we cantered to a 3-0 win, largely thanks to an imperious performance from Jan Vertonghen at left-back. Then, in the second leg at Dortmund’s imposing Signal Iduna Park - where they had been unbeaten all season up to that point - Harry showed ice-cool composure to rifle home the game’s only goal and give us victory in Germany. That goal also made him our all-time leading goalscorer in European competition on 24.
200th career goal
15 July, 2020 - Newcastle United 1-3 Spurs - Premier League
Harry hit the ground running with a bang as football returned to our lives following the Premier League’s suspension amid the Coronavirus outbreak. Scoring seven goals in our final eight games of the 2019/20 season, our number 10 was certainly enjoying a purple patch of form in front of goal. Two of his strikes came against Newcastle United in a resounding 3-1 win and the first of those was the 200th goal of his club career - a fine header from a Steven Bergwijn cross.
200th Spurs goal
5 November, 2020 - Ludogorets 1-3 Spurs - UEFA Europa League
Harry’s fine form has since continued into this new campaign with the striker now on a run of 28 goal involvements in his last 17 games. Against Ludogorets last Thursday, he was involved in two of our three goals – a goal and an assist - in the 3-1 Europa League win. His goal, the opener as he headed in Lucas Moura’s corner on 13 minutes, saw him enter an elite club in our history. That was Spurs goal number 200 for our homegrown forward and only two other players have managed such a tally for us - Bobby Smith (208) and Jimmy Greaves (266).
