Harry Kane scored from the penalty spot as Bayern Munich drew 2-2 with Real Madrid in Tuesday’s thrilling Champions League semi-final first leg – and the striker set a new record for an Englishman in the process.

Vinicius Junior found the net against the run of play to put Madrid in front in the 24th minute in Munich, but Bayern rallied after the half-time break to drag themselves back into the contest and set up what promises to be an intriguing second leg.

Leroy Sane – who had earlier blazed a golden chance over the bar – levelled for the hosts in the 53th minute, cutting inside and unleashing a devastating finish past Andriy Lunin.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were then handed the chance to take the lead just before the hour mark at the Allianz Arena as Lucas Vazquez clumsily stuck out a leg and brought down Jamal Musiala for a penalty.

England captain Kane held his nerve to convert from 12 yards, taking his incredible tally to 43 goals in 43 games for Bayern in all competitions in what has been a phenomenal debut season from an individual perspective.

The strike also saw Kane break the record for the most goal contributions (11) by an English player in a single Champions League campaign, with eight goals and three assists in Europe’s premier competition this term – taking him beyond Steven Gerrard (10) and David Beckham (10).

Bayern appeared on course to take a narrow advantage to the Bernabeu in a week’s time but Madrid had other ideas, with Vinicius Junior scoring a penalty of his own in the 83rd minute after Rodrygo was fouled by Kim Min-jae.
