Tottenham and England Forward, Harry Kane has equaled Jimmy Greaves’ 266th goal record as he netted in Fulham defeat to Tottenham on Monday.

The England captain fired a clinical strike from the penalty area at Craven Cottage, the only goal of the match.

Greaves’ record in Tottemham had stood since 1970, but Kane’s first goal in his last three appearances gave him a share of the milestone.

The 29-year-old is now one short of becoming the third player to net 200 Premier League goals, after Alan Shearer (260) and Wayne Rooney (208).

Kane is also level with Wayne Rooney as England’s joint record goalscorer after bagging his 53rd international goal in the World Cup quarter-final defeat against France in December.

Greaves, who died aged 81 in 2021, is regarded as one of the most natural goal scorers in football history.

A member of England’s 1966 World Cup-winning squad, who netted 44 times for his country, Greaves is the highest scorer in English top-flight history with 357 goals.
