Kane’s landmark goal fires Spurs to victory over Wolves

Kane’s landmark goal With his 185th Premier League goal for Tottenham, Kane surpassed Sergio Aguero of Argentina, who had 184 goals while playing for Manchester City.

In his quest to surpass Jimmy Greaves as the north London club’s all-time record scorer, Kane moved 16 goals behind Greaves with his 250th goal for Tottenham in all competitions.

The 29-year-old scored a historic goal from close range in the second half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In the 2-2 draw at Chelsea last weekend, Kane tied Aguero with a header in stoppage time after scoring his first goal of the year.

Unbeaten Tottenham are at the top of the league after winning two of their first three games, but playing far below their potential.

Depending on other results over the weekend, their reign at the top may be short-lived, but the positive vibes inside the club right now are undeniable.

Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham, has turned around a club that was in shambles when he took over the previous season, guiding them into the Champions League and offering optimism for a sustained run as a top-four force.

Kane’s landmark goal

Conte received a fine for his role in the last weekend’s touchline altercations with Thomas Tuchel, which resulted in the Chelsea manager receiving a one-match touchline suspension.

This time, Conte was upset with his own team members because Tottenham was outplayed in the first half. The Italian’s rage eventually led to the desired outcome.

Matheus Nunes, who cost Wolves a club record £38 million ($44 million), arrived from Sporting Lisbon this week and made a spectacular start.

Seven Portuguese players filled up Bruno Lage’s starting lineup after Goncalo Guedes made his first Wolves appearance.

Kane, Clinical

Before Guedes cut inside for a low shot that barely missed the target, another member of Wolves’ Portuguese army, Ruben Neves, tested Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris from a long distance.

Neves’ dangerous long-range attempt narrowly missed the target, and Daniel Podence’s poor shot from a promising position went wide, leaving Tottenham supporters unhappy.

The legendary Ronaldo of Brazil seems equally unhappy by plodding Tottenham’s fragmented performance from high in the stands.

Wolves at least supplied some sharp moments to keep Ronaldo engaged as Nunes nearly scored his first goal with a header from Neves’ cross that whistled just wide.

Wolves lacked a cutting edge despite their quality in possession, Kane’s landmark goal which would be their undoing.

When Kane’s looping header forced Jose Sa to tip over at full stretch, they nearly paid for it.

Tottenham was jeered off after Pedro Neto smashed into the side-netting just before halftime because they appeared much more drowsy than they did during their sluggish first half against Chelsea last weekend.

Kane’s equaliser helped them survive that time, and he did so again early in the second half with a diving header that rebounded off the crossbar.

In a tight angle, Son Heung-shot min’s from outside the near post came as Tottenham began to find their footing.

In the 64th minute, Tottenham’s unexpected surge of pressure was rewarded.

Kane was perfectly positioned to head in Tottenham’s 1,000th home Premier League goal after Ivan Perisic flicked on a header.

Neves came within inches of scoring an equaliser with a free kick that curled just wide.

However, Wolves have now lost 10 straight league games, a depressing stretch when compared to Tottenham’s upbeat outlook.
