Harry Kane Becomes The Fastest Player To Score 20 Goals In The Champions League

Published

on

Harry Kane bang a brace on Wednesday night, two important goals in Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-2  triumph over Olympiacos at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The win sends Spurs through to the Champions League Round of 16, qualifying along with Bayern Munich out of Group B and making the final match against Bayern at the new stadium a dead-rubber match.

By virtue of scoring two goals, Harry Kane became the fastest player to score 20 goals in the Champions League during Tottenham’s victory over Olympiakos on Tuesday.

The England striker found the net twice as Spurs overturned a two-goal deficit to beat the Greek side 4-2 in Jose Mourinho’s first home game since taking charge of the club.

The 26-year-old’s brace saw him reach the 20-goal landmark after just 24 appearances in the European competition – two fewer than previous record-holder Alessandro Del Piero.

The double against Olympiakos on Tuesday means that the Spurs star has scored six goals in the Champions League this season – already surpassing the five he managed during the competition last year.

Mourinho’s side didn’t have things all their own way as they quickly fell behind to goals from Youssef El-Arabi and Ruben Semedo in the first 20 minutes.

Kane also beat the likes of Ruud Van Nistelrooy (27), Filippo Inzaghi (28), and Mario Gomez (32) in reaching the figure.
