HARRY KANE has broken two more Bundesliga records after scoring for Bayern Munich once again.

The England captain’s 18th goal of the season put Bayern top of the Bundesliga with Friday’s 1-0 win at FC Koln.

His strike extends his lead as the league’s top scorer as Kane poked home after an effort was cleared off the line.

It means the summer signing from Tottenham is the highest-scoring Englishman ever in the German top flight and the first player to ever reach 18 goals from the first 12 games of a Bundesliga season.

Kane said afterwards: “It was a really good game for us today.

“Some people look at the result and might have expected a little more. But it was a fantastic game from everyone. We could have scored three goals in the first half alone.

“The result was the most important thing. It never looked dangerous, which is a good sign.”

His goal haul surpasses the 17 notched in a single season by Three Lions’ legend Kevin Keegan and England winger Jadon Sancho.

Keegan spent three years in Germany with Hamburg, winning two Ballon d’Ors during that time.

His 32 Bundesliga goals included 17 during the 1978/79 season as he fired his side to the title.

That record was equalled in 2019/20 as Sancho paired 17 assists with an equal number of goals across 32 league appearances for Dortmund.

He joined Manchester United a year later, clearing the path for Kane to break the record this season.

As well as 18 league goals, he has also found the net four times in as many Champions League matches.

Kane previously set a new record for the quickest player to reach 15 Bundesliga goals in a season, but has since been surpassed, as well as outscoring last season’s golden boot winner.

He is on course to break more records, with Robert Lewandowski’s 22 goals in the first half of the 2020/21 season now in his sights.

Bayern have four more league matches remaining before the winter break.

Kane now holds the record for most Bundesliga goals by an Englishman in a single season.
