since 2014-15 his goals per season have been:Kane isn't someone like Benzema. When the going gets tough and it's a really big match, just like the Euro game England vs France, he misses the decisive penalty. He doesn't have it in him to panenka it in.
We'll see how he does against the big boys in the knockout stages. But i wouldn't hold my breath if he continues to be underwhelming just like when he was at Tottenham.
Hype is outrageous...
29, 28, 35, 41, 24, 24, 28, 25, 32.
That’s nine seasons in a row of at least 24 goals a season. Which is an average of 30 goals per season. Playing for Spurs in arguably the most competitive league in the world.
His goal plus assist is even better:
34, 30, 40, 45, 30, 26, 44, 35, 37.
That’s an average of 36 G+A per season. Again, at Spurs.
This season at Bayern he has 21 goals in 15 games. And 28 G+A in 15 games. Meaning he is nearly averaging two goals scored or created per match.
All time top scorer for England with 61 goals in 87 matches, plus 15 assists. Meaning a G+A of 76 in 87 for the national team. Surpassing Rooney’s 53 goals in 120 apps or Charlton’s 49 in 106. All time top scorer for Spurs. Fastest player ever to reach 20 UCL goals (24 apps). Only England player to ever score in every major tournament qualifying game for a single tournament. Top scorer at 2018 World Cup.
But despite scoring a penalty earlier in that same game, I agree, he missed that second penalty against France. So the hype is just nonsense. Nothing player. Much like that time I wrote off Franco Baresi and Roberto Baggio’s careers after they missed those penalties in 94. Losers.
