Harry Kane scored one goal and assisted another on his Bundesliga debut as Bayern Munich beat Werder Bremen 4-0 in their season opener on Friday.
Kane, who finally completed a lengthy transfer from Tottenham last weekend, immediately showed why Bayern are said to have paid more than 100 million euros ($110 million) for the striker.
Kane needed just three minutes to set up Leroy Sané to open the scoring, before he beat Bremen’s Jirí Pavlenka with a low shot in the 74th minute. A Bremen defender shot wide off the left post.
The England captain left the field shortly afterwards with what looked like a cramp, one of three late changes made by Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel.
Substitute Thomas Müller set up Sané for a third goal in the last minute, then Alphonso Davies set up a goal for Mathys Tel to score in injury time.

But it started with Kane thinking of a clever ball from inside his half to allow Sané to open the scoring on a counter-attack. Bremen’s defense should have done better.
Summer signing Kim Min-jae also has his first game for Bayern, who are trying to extend their record 11 consecutive Bundesliga titles.
There was a minute of silence before the game for former Bremen player Horst-Dieter Höttges, who died in July. Höttges was a member of the West Germany team that won the 1974 World Cup.
