Harry Kane gave himself a solid chance to overtake Lionel Messi and become Europe’s top scorer in 2017 after scoring a hat-trick against Burnley on Saturday, December 23. Kane equalled Messi on 54 goals for club and country in 2017 with his opener against Southampton on Boxing Day, but then moved ahead of the Argentine by completing his hat-trick at Wembley. Not only has Kane beaten Messi to the record, he’s also finished ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Edinson Cavani.
By scoring his treble against Southampton, Kane also broke Alan Shearer’s record which had stood for 22 years as he finished the year with 38 Premier League goals.
