On BBC Radio 5 Live, former Premier League striker Glenn Murray remarked, “What a moment for Harry Kane and these Tottenham fans.” to be able to perform it in front of everyone present at his home stadium.
The opportunity to become the all-time leading scorer for Tottenham Hotspur was “a special experience that he will never ever forget.” He was clearly waving to the box containing his family.
“Now that he’s done it, he needs to really go forward and claim that record for himself.”
After Shearer and Wayne Rooney, Kane is the third player to reach 200 goals in the Premier League. Having played 304 games, the 29-year-old took fewer games than the former strikers to attain the milestone.
