Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane on Thursday scored his 200th goal for the club against Ludogorets Razgrad in just his 300th appearance.

The England international scored the first goal in a 3-1 win over the Bulgarian opposition. The goal was his 12th of the season and the win puts the Lilywhites top of Group J of this season’s UEFA Europa League.

The Three Lions skipper scored his first goal for the club back in 2011 against Shamrock Rovers but he has had to wait nine years to complete his double century. He had loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Leicester and Norwich.

“Time goes so quick,” Kane told BT Sport after the game. “It feels like yesterday I was scoring that first goal for Spurs. It’s a great achievement to reach 200 goals, but for sure hopefully there’s a few more left. Let’s keep them coming.”

Jose Mourinho’s side have six points from three games after last week’s 1-0 loss to Royal Antwerp in Belgium.

“We had to bounce back,” he added. “I don’t think it was our greatest performance tonight but we got the job done. It’s never easy coming away in Europe, as last week showed.

“We put ourselves in a nice position. After the international break we play them again at home, so if we win the next couple it should be enough to get through.”

The 27-year-old has netted 121 of his goals with his favoured right foot, but has also found the back of the net with his left on 44 occasions and another 34 with his head and one with his shoulder. He also now sits third on Tottenham’s all-time scorers list behind Bobby Smith on 208 and Jimmy Greaves on 266.

Kane would hope to add to his goals when his side visit West Bromwich Albion on Sunday in a Premier League clash.
