If you came here to argue about Harry Kane’s greatness then you’ve come to the wrong place. Harry will likely one day retire while holding the records for the most goals scored both in the Premier League and for England’s National Team.
Harry Kane is just 4 goals away from tying Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England. It took Rooney 120 appearances to reach 53 goals. Harry has already scored 49 goals in just 69 caps for England and he’s likely to blow past Rooney’s goal this Summer in the Nations League tournament and in the World Cup this Fall.
Kane’s 183 goals in the Premier League have him at 5th all-time. He’s 1 goal behind Sergio Aguero and 4 behind Andrew Cole. So it’s likely Kane will move into 3rd place on the all-time PL list early next season and then he’ll be chasing Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals.
How’d Harry get to this point? According to Harry Kane, it was this Tom Brady documentary The Brady 6: Journey of the Legend NO ONE Wanted that set him on the path to greatness. He spoke about it as a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night.
Harry Kane Talks About Brady Changing His Life
Jimmy Fallon: “What gets you inspired? What do you watch or what do you read where you’re like ‘that inspires me’?”
Harry Kane: “One thing that did inspire me growing up was actually a Tom Brady documentary. I was away at another club on loan. And I wasn’t getting in the team (getting any playing time). I was 18 years old and I was like ‘if I can’t play here, how can I play for my team Tottenham?’ at the time.
I come across this documentary on YouTube. I think it was called The Brady 6 and it was kind of about how he got picked in the 6th Round and then became who he became, one of the greatest sportsmen ever.
And it just gave me a real belief that it was possible for me to go on and kind of have that career. And thankfully I was able to do that.”
