    On this day in 2011, Harry Kane made his Tottenham debut.

    The then 18-year-old started in a Europa League play-off against Hearts – with boss Harry Redknapp playing a youthful side after a 5-0 first leg victory at Tynecastle Park seven days earlier in Edinburgh.

    It looked like being a dream debut for Kane, who won a first-half penalty, but saw his tame effort saved by Hearts goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald in a goalless draw at White Hart Lane.

    However, Kane didn’t have to wait long until his first Spurs goal – which came in his sixth appearance against Shamrock Rovers in December 2011.

    Kane scored just once in six appearances that season before enduring unsuccessful loan spells at both at Norwich and Leicester in the following campaign after making his Premier League debut for Tottenham during the opening day defeat at Newcastle in August 2012.

    It wasn’t until the 2013-2014 season where Kane really broke into the first-team, netting in three consecutive league games under Tim Sherwood and ended the campaign as a regular starter ahead of summer signing Roberto Soldado.

    But it was 12 months later when the young forward really announced himself on the Premier League stage, scoring 21 goals in 34 matches which saw him win the PFA Young Player of the Year award and also named in PFA Team of the Year.

    Since making his debut in that drab 0-0 draw, Kane has gone on to score 188 goals in 287 appearances in all competitions and currently sits 3rd on the club’s all-time top goalscorer list – just 20 behind second-place Bobby Smith.

    Kane is also Tottenham’s all-time top goalscorer in Europe with 30 – overtaking another popular striker Jermain Defoe – and is also Spurs’ highest scorer in the PL with 143 goals.
