Bayern’s Harry Kane Dominates in Bundesliga Debut with Spectacular Goal and Assist

Bayern’s Harry Kane scored once and assisted on another goal to lead the league champions to a 4-0 victory at Werder Bremen in Friday’s season-opening match and a successful start to their league campaign.

The record champions in their new look have dominated to start the 60th Bundesliga season. Bayern Munich entered Werder Bremen with their purple highlight away uniforms, and they easily defeated them 4-0 to start Thomas Tuchel’s first season in charge.

Bayern’s Harry Kane Debut Reflections

Harry Kane told he had “a few butterflies” before making his Bundesliga debut. They did not appear.

Kane, who finally finished last weekend what had been a drawn-out deal from Tottenham, immediately demonstrated why Bayern is said to have paid more than $110 million for the attacker.

“There was a little bit of nervous excitement to play the game,” Kane remarked. “I’m in new surroundings, and I’m very eager to start the season with my new team and a big club. So there were undoubtedly some butterflies. But as always, I believe that once I’m on the field, instinct takes control and I just play my regular game.

Bayern’s Harry Kane Swift Impact

Harry Kane only required three minutes to free Leroy Sané for the game’s first goal, and it took him until the 74th minute to defeat Bremen’s Ji Pavlenka with a low drive. The shot was slightly deflected inside the left post by the studs of a Bremen defender.

The England captain was one of three last-minute substitutions made by Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel after leaving the field with what appeared to be a cramp.

Substitute Sané’s third goal was assisted by Thomas Müller in the waning seconds, and Mathys Tel, another replacement, assisted Alphonso Davies to round out the scoring in stoppage time.

The time right following halftime was the best for the home team. “They came out in the second half and had a few chances, which made it hard, but then it was wonderful to get their second goal, followed by the boys off the bench came on and completed the job for us,” Kane said.

Sané was given free to score on a counterattack after Kane dinked a deft ball forward into space from within his own half. The defense for Bremen needed to do better.

“We had a couple more opportunities in the first half to put the game away early, but we maybe should have done a little bit better with those opportunities. But later, we played better defense,” Kane remarked. “We spoke about how much better we were at making the first contact. Set pieces are important if we want to be a competitive squad this season in all competitions. I’m also quite glad to start over. It will be crucial moving forward for the remainder of the year.
