Harry Kane scores on Bundesliga debut
England striker Harry Kane scored one and assisted another in his starting debut as Bayern Munich won 4-0 away at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga season opener on Friday.
Kane assisted on Leroy Sane’s opener just three minutes in, before scoring midway through the second half. Sane scoring another and French teenager Mathys Tel, who had replaced Kane, getting on the scoresheet in injury time to ensure Bayern finished atop the league table.
Kane, however, endured a losing debut with Bayern Munich on Saturday when his new team crashed to a 0-3 defeat by RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup, just hours after the England skipper sealed a move from Tottenham.
Dani Olmo was the star of the show, producing a virtuoso performance and scoring a hat-trick in Munich as Kane’s dream of clinching his first major silverware was shattered. Kane came on as a 64th-minute substitute with Bayern already trailing 2-0 but soon after Olmo completed his hat-trick. The record England goalscorer joined from Tottenham for a fee in excess of 100 million euros ($109.6 million) earlier Saturday.

Bayern fans had lined up hours before kick-off to get their “Kane 9” shirts printed at the club store. Kane, who was given the number nine shirt vacated by Robert Lewandowski, had indicated on social media that he was “feeling good” and “looking forward to the match” after taking part in his first training session as a new Bayern player.
But he couldn’t turn the tide as Leipzig were awarded a penalty three minutes after his introduction. Olmo converted the spot-kick to seal a first Super Cup title for Marco Rose’s side. Kane, who has lost three finals with Tottenham and one with England, must wait for his first-ever trophy.
Leipzig had earlier stunned the Allianz Arena, taking the lead inside three minutes. David Raum’s free-kick wasn’t dealt with by Bayern and Olmo calmly stroked the ball beyond Sven Ulreich. The goal shook the hosts into action and Bayern’s best chances of the first half were crafted by Serge Gnabry and spurned by French teenager Mathys Tel.
