Harry Kane is enjoying life at Bayern Munich so far after moving to Germany from Tottenham this summer.
He recently scored the club’s ninth goal in his first eight Bundesliga games and helped the champions to a 3-1 win in Mainz.
Last night the Englishman scored in Munich’s 3-1 away win in the Champions League at Galatasaray.
His goal in Turkey means the striker has now scored 23 goals in the competition – level with former Chelsea star Frank Lampard.
But how many does the striker need to become England’s all-time goalscorer in the Champions League?

Wayne Rooney is currently at the top, with Kane only needing eight goals to break the record.
Rooney’s 30 goals in 85 appearances have remained untouched since his departure from Manchester United in 2018.
Raheem Sterling is second on the list with 27 goals in 82 games, while former Red Devils midfielder Paul Scholes is third with 24 goals in 124 games.
Kane has scored two goals in the competition so far this season. Before moving to Munich, the Englishman scored 21 goals in 32 appearances for Tottenham in the Champions League.
Another goal for the 30-year-old would bring him level with Luís Figo, Gonzalo Higuain and Scholes.
Victory over Galatasaray now means Thomas Tuchel’s side have won all three games so far in the competition and are currently top of Group A.
The German side are five points clear at the top, with Manchester United in third place with three points after their decisive win over Copenhagen.
After another goal in the Champions League: Kane said: “It was a really important win.” It was a difficult game in front of a fantastic backdrop and with fans who made things really difficult for us, especially in the first half.

“In the second half we had more space and played better. We now have nine points from three games, which is very good. Hats off to the Galatasaray fans, but also to our away fans who created such a great atmosphere.”
Tuchel’s side host Darmstadt in the league on Saturday – and Kane will be looking to add to his impressive tally.
