Harry Kane contributed three goals to the 8-0 win over SV Darmstadt – including a spectacular long-range shot. The striker’s goals don’t just help FC Bayern München, says coach Thomas Tuchel
He scored the 1:0 with a flying header, then the 5:0 with a wonderful long-range shot and finally the goal with his right foot for the 8:0 final score. In FC Bayern München’s resounding victory over Darmstadt, three-goal man Harry Kane once again proved his versatility.
In particular, the second of these three goals, which the 30-year-old scored from the center circle, will probably find a place in many a review of the year. Kane took his measure from more than 50 meters and smashed the ball under the crossbar – SVD keeper Marcel Schuhen could not prevent the impact.
“I took the ball and saw in the corner of my eye that the goalkeeper was in a funny position,” Kane explained on Sky after the game. “I thought to myself, ‘We’re already four, five goals up, so why not’
Twelve goals are now the 110-million-euro man has scored for his club in the Bundesliga. Twelve very important goals, thinks coach Thomas Tuchel. “The fact that he has scored is the most important thing for every goal scorer,” Tuchel is sure, “to grow into the club, to grow into the team, to arrive in the city. Nothing helps more than goals.”
“I think his whole family, his friends, his children are there. You can tell every time that’s the case for him, too,” Tuchel described his observation. “There were really great goals there in the second half. The one from Harry, of course, from over 50 meters, that stands out. “
