HARRY KANE scored his first Bayern Munich hat-trick as the German giants routed VfL Bochum 7-0.
In doing so, the England captain became the first player in history to score six or more goals in their first five Bundesliga matches.

Kane spent all summer embroiled in a will-he, won’t-he transfer saga as Bayern negotiated with Tottenham.
He dramatically left his boyhood club on the eve of the Premier League season in a £104million move, making his Bayern debut on the same day.
The former Spurs man went into today’s match having scored four times in four German top flight games – in addition to a further Champions League strike against Manchester United.
He then ran riot against lowly Bochum, putting them to the sword in clinical fashion.
Bayern went 1-0 up via Kane’s strike partner Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on just four minutes.
The 30-year-old didn’t take long to get his name on the scoresheet, making it 2-0 with a low shot after 12 minutes.
He could have added another just moments later, but horribly miscued a shot over the bar.
It wasn’t to matter, however, with Matthijs de Ligt and Leroy Sane efforts making it 4-0 by half-time.

Kane grabbed his second just nine minutes into the second half, sweeping home a 54th minute penalty in trademark fashion.
Wonderkid Mathys Tel made it 6-0 with nine minutes remaining, before Kane’s close range finish sealed his hat-trick and made it seven late on.
By the German definition of hat-trick, Kane did NOT score one today.
That’s because they define a hat-trick as three consecutive goals in a game.
As Kane’s treble was interrupted by goals from his team-mates, it does not count by the Bundesliga’s definition.
After the game, Kane posted a picture of himself with the match ball.
He wrote: “A new one for the collection!”
Earlier this week, Thomas Tuchel gushed over the impact of his new signing.
He said: “It’s a big thing, we took the skipper of England out of England.
“Anyone looking for a No9 would’ve been happy to have Harry in the team.
“He makes the team better and gives you what you want from a man.
“He can drop deep, turn, use speed of players around him, he can arrive in the box at the right time, he’s an excellent finisher and good penalty taker.
“I’m not sure what’s going on at other clubs but we’re more than happy that he finally took the decision and came to make us better.”
