Harry Kane Makes History, Surpasses Drogba’s European Goal Record with Crucial Champions League Double against Lazio!

50

On Tuesday, Harry Kane netted a crucial goal for Bayern Munich against Lazio, marking a noteworthy milestone in his career journey.

The England captain demonstrated instinctive prowess by opening the scoring, bending low to convert Raphael Guerreiro’s deflected shot. Kane did not only equalized Bayern’s aggregate score in the Champions League last-16 clash but also achieved his 50th European goal milestone in the process.

This achievement equals the record set by Didier Drogba, who scored 11 goals for Marseille and 39 for Chelsea during his illustrious career filled with trophies. In the second goal, Kane surpassed Drogba’s tally, further solidifying his European scoring legacy.

The 30-year-old striker’s European goal tally might appear unexpectedly modest considering his prominent status in the game.

For instance, 25-year-old Kylian Mbappe trails closely behind him, having scored all his goals in the Champions League. Nevertheless, it underscores Kane’s loyalty to Tottenham, despite his departure from north London. Since leaving, the England international has flourished, exemplified by his opening goal on Wednesday, bringing his total to 32 goals in 33 appearances this season. Bayern’s success will heavily hinge on Kane’s scoring prowess.

A victory on Tuesday will undoubtedly ease some of the pressure on manager Thomas Tuchel, who had faced rumors of being sacked if he fails to guide his team past the last 16 stage.
