In a remarkable debut for Bayern Munich, England striker Harry Kane demonstrated his prowess by scoring a goal and assisting another as his team secured a resounding 4-0 victory over Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga season opener on Friday.
Kane, who recently completed a high-profile 100-million euro (USD 109 million) transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich, wasted no time in making an impact. Just three minutes into the game, he orchestrated a superb assist to set up Leroy Sane for the opening goal. Kane’s football intelligence and ability to connect play were evident as he smoothly initiated the attack.
Despite the high expectations surrounding his debut, Kane revealed that he felt a mix of nervousness and excitement. Speaking to broadcaster DAZN after the match, he shared, “I was a little bit nervous (and) excited to play the game, of course. For sure there were a few butterflies, but as always when I get on the pitch, instinct takes over.”
Kane’s on-field contributions continued to shine, and in the 74th minute, he secured his own goal by calmly dispatching a low shot past Bremen’s goalkeeper Jiří Pavlenka. This pivotal goal not only snuffed out Bremen’s second-half fightback but also opened the floodgates for Bayern to seal their dominance.
Leroy Sane, who benefited from Kane’s early assist, added another goal to his tally, and the final flourish was provided by French teenager Mathys Tel, who found the net in injury time. This convincing victory ensured that Bayern Munich began the season as they often do: at the top of the league table.
The synergy between Kane and his new teammates was apparent throughout the game. His precise assists, combined with his goal-scoring prowess, reflect his seamless integration into Bayern’s attacking lineup. Kane’s contributions eased the pressure on a Bayern team that came into the season under scrutiny, following a 3-0 defeat to RB Leipzig in the German FA Supercup.
Kane’s performance underscored his footballing acumen, as he collected a close-range pass from Sane to initiate the opening goal. He chipped the ball over Bremen’s defense before Sane executed the finish. Despite Bremen’s attempts to make a comeback, Kane’s clinical control of a pass from Canadian defender Alphonso Davies allowed him to secure his debut goal, with a slight deflection aiding its path into the net.
As the match reached its conclusion, Kane was substituted in the final minutes, making way for Mathys Tel, who cemented Bayern’s victory by scoring in injury time.
The arrival of Harry Kane has injected fresh energy into Bayern Munich’s attack, and his standout performance on his Bundesliga debut has ignited optimism among fans for the upcoming season.
