Harry Kane scores from own half, nets hat-trick in Bayern Munich win

Harry Kane scored a hat-trick including a goal from his own half as Bayern Munich thrashed Darmstadt in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

The England captain, 30, got himself on the scoresheet three times as the reigning league champions ran out 8-0 winners at the Allianz Arena.

Kane had already opened the scoring for Bayern early in the second-half before he added a second – and his team’s fifth of the afternoon – with a brilliant strike with a little over 20 minutes remaining.

Picking up the ball inside the centre circle on his side of the field, Kane let fly with a long-range effort that left the scrambling Marcel Schuhen in the Darmstadt goal no chance as the ball flew in over his head.

A chaotic game – which included three red cards including two for the visitors – ended 8-0 with Kane rounding out his hat-trick with two minutes remaining.

Kane now has 12 goals, including two hat-tricks, and five assists from his first nine league games for his new club following his summer move from Tottenham Hotspur.

The win puts Bayern top of the table with 23 points from their nine games so far this season.

Second-placed Bayer Leverkusen have the opportunity to return to the summit when they host Freiburg on Sunday.
