What is Harry Kane’s best ever goal?

Harry Kane became the all-time leading scorer in Tottenham Hotspur history when he grabbed the winning goal in a 1-0 win at home to Manchester City last week.

The England captain moved ahead of Jimmy Greaves to become the outright record holder with 267 strikes to his name.

To celebrate this landmark occasion, Sean Walsh and Jude Summerfield recorded a special edition of 90min’s Oh What A Night podcast, dedicating 75 minutes to Kane.

They discussed Sunday’s win, went through a timeline of Kane’s career and picked their favourite goal of his 267 so far.

On this edition of OWAN, Sean Walsh & Jude Summerfield discuss record breaker Harry Kane at length after he became Tottenham’s record goalscorer. If you can’t see this embed, click here to listen to the podcast!

Sean Walsh: What was your favourite Kane goal, if you had to pick one of the 267?

Jude Summerfield: This is always a tricky one. I’ll probably end up rattling a few off the bat that I won’t be able to choose between. There’s Arsenal in 2015/16, with the screaming and taking the mask off. I think for more like the aesthetics of a goal, the one against Palace in 2020/21 where he arrives on the edge of the box, hits it right-footed, it swerves towards the far post and goes in. It’s very top-of-the-side-netting. That’s just artistry right there. And then probably the header against Arsenal [in 2014/15] as an ‘I was there’ moment.

Sean Walsh: Should we talk about that a bit more? Because I don’t think we’ve talked about it enough. We talked about the Chelsea game [5-3 in 2014/15], it felt like part two of that kind of coming out. There was so much talk of Kane from the Arsenal side heading into that derby, ‘is he the real deal?’, the guy dressed like a pirate on AFTV saying the ‘whose name is Harry Kane?’ line and the shot of him in the stands after he scored the brace and he’s looking deadpan down the camera like he’s in The Office.

That was it, that was his game. I was so excited going into it, the atmosphere was great, we go 1-0 down but it doesn’t matter. We were battering them. It was probably one of the only times in my life where we killed Arsenal. We pinned them down, we dominated them, and we absolutely deserved to win. Kane gets the first goal, the scruffy corner, and then the 86th-minute goal where [Nabil] Bentaleb’s cross is so high, it’s like in 2017/18 where he hangs there so long and it’s the perfect ending. He comes in the end and he says straight into the camera ‘got to love a north London derby, eh’! The hero.

Jude Summerfield: That was a ridiculous derby. Spurs were just by the end…the side they were shooting towards, they were sucking the ball in. It was ridiculous, it was just a matter of time before we ended up breaking through. It seemed like a real good ‘we’re going to be decent in a season or two’ [moment]. The pieces are there. Maybe it’s different people in central midfield or another attacker but the foundation is there. Arsenal’s weren’t particularly good on the day or in their pomp.

Sean Walsh: I think in terms of my favourite Kane goal, I went with the Palace one [in 2020/21]. That’s the one I decided on in the last few days. I was actually lucky enough to be there for it, it was near the end of the lockdown. I was sat where the press area is at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, I was almost right behind from where he struck it. I think I was sat with Ben Haines at the time – socially distanced obviously – and there was this audible ‘how did he do that?’ from the media section and not just the benches. It was first time, not like he was taking a touch and picking it out like that cross against Everton in 2017/18 where it goes all the way in. He meant to do that [against Palace].

The difficulty that takes, and then one of my favourite other bits is Gareth Bale’s behind him and he gets really psyched about the goal. Imagine impressing Gareth Bale like that, think about the love in for him over the last couple of months because he’s retired. How cool is that?

Jude Summerfield: The myth of those players being on the same pitch at the same time, it’s sort of fan fiction. It makes it so much better. There’s pictures of it after where Bale is doing his big Wales celebration with Kane.

Sean Walsh: Genuinely impressed and going crazy about that goal. It’s such a cool moment. The annoying thing is that no fans were there.
