Harry Kane’s post-Tottenham journey has been a resounding success since joining Bayern Munich. The 30-year-old England skipper showcased his prowess with a two-goal performance against Heidenheim, bringing his Bundesliga tally to 17 goals in just 11 appearances. Additionally, his four goals in the Champions League propelled him beyond the 20-goal mark across all competitions.
In Bayern, Kane has found himself in a more dominant and creative environment compared to his former team. His recent double not only secured a Bundesliga record for the most goals after 11 matches but also marked his 14th goal in the last seven games, including international play against Italy. At this rate, Kane is poised to surpass 50 league goals this season, potentially eclipsing Robert Lewandowski’s record.
Leading the Bundesliga in shots on target (26) and big chances scored (13), Kane’s performance outshines his expected goals (xG) and positions him as the most reliable striker in Europe. His seamless adaptation to a new country and league has exceeded expectations, earning praise from England’s manager, Gareth Southgate, who highlighted Kane’s confidence and success in embracing a fresh challenge abroad.
As Kane gears up for England’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia, the Three Lions can anticipate reaping the rewards of their No. 9’s exceptional form. Southgate emphasized the significance of Kane’s move to a prominent foreign club and acknowledged the potential underestimation of the talent England has had over the years.
Facing Kane in their upcoming matches will undoubtedly be a formidable task for Malta and North Macedonia. Kane’s recent performances, including a goal from inside his own half in an 8-0 victory over Darmstadt, demonstrate his peak form. Grateful for the opportunities provided by his Bayern teammates, Kane’s contributions have positioned England as strong contenders for Euro 2024, provided their creative players continue to complement his goal-scoring prowess.
