Tottenham Hotspur Harry Kane is obviously one of the underrated forwards in the Premier League and by extension in Europe at large.

The 26-year-old has constantly scored double-figure goals in the last six Premier League seasons - with a number of assists credited to his name at the end of each campaign.

Kane joined the North Londoners in 2009 as a youth player from Watford and he was promoted to the senior team the same year. He has since then scored a total of 140 goals from 208 EPL games.

According to Daily Mail, 185 of those goals came in Tottenham's colours, nine were scored for Millwall, five for Leyton Orient and two for Leicester during loan spells earlier on his career.

After achieving the feat, Kane, Kane expressed his delight on Twitter, adding that: "Very proud, on to the next 200."

Stats show that it took the forward 350 matches for the striker to achieve the record.

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is no doubt one of the most celebrated footballers of this generation but he needed 379 matches before reaching the 200 goal mark -29 more than Kane.

Sergio Aguero achieved the same feat after 396 games, while Thierry Henry and Wayne Rooney needed 439 and 449 respectively to reach the milestone.

This means that Kane's achievement is nothing but extraordinary. He was also responsible for his side reaching the Champions League final but lost to Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho has worked with some of the world's best in his time, but even he seemed astounded by what Kane has managed to achieve in such a short space of time.

"Harry knows how important he is, he is incredible,' said Mourinho, after the win kept their European hopes alive.

"He is a young guy and to have 200 goals at this age with the remaining years he has in front of him is amazing. It is very normal that he speaks about going for 200 more. I am with him."
