Harry Kane showed once again why he’s world class and the best striker in today’s time as he broke Newcastle legend Alan Shearer’s long-standing record of the most goals in one year in the premier league. Playing his last league match of the year, Kane needed one goal to smash Shearer’s record. And boy did he turn out in full form as a highly motivated Kane hit three past a helpless Saints defence who were unable to contain the striker who has been in red-hot form this entire year. Kane guided his team to a 5-2 win and with that helped Tottenham move up to fifth in the standings. It was even a sweeter day for him on a personal level as he went on to score 39 league goals in 2017 and move ahead of Shearer’s 36. He also became the highest scorer this year with 56 goals, moving ahead of Messi and Ronaldo.
Kane’s footballing ability and poacher qualities in the box are unmatched to none. His clinical finishing, movement, heading and powerful shooting paired with his immense passion of the game have made him the leading forward in today’s day and age. The boy from Tottenham has surpassed the likes of Aguero, Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar and Lewandowski to become hot property in modern football. As the records kept tumbling for him, Kane’s never ending appetite was not satisfied as he wanted more. Despite heading his record 37th goal Kane was as hungry as ever and went on to score 2 more to bag another hat trick. His total of 8 hat tricks this year is more than any of the premier league player combined together and also the only time that a player has scored back to back hat tricks twice.
“It was hard not to think about it going into the game being level,” Kane said.
“As always, I wanted to win the game first and foremost but of course I wanted to score as a striker. To get that goal early on and get that record was a great feeling and I could enjoy the rest of the game.”
