The game Kane is referring to was the 5-1 home win against Sunderland during the 2013/14 season when Tim Sherwood was in charge of the north London club.
In that game, Brazil international Paulinho was playing alongside Kane, who scored after 59 minutes at White Hart Lane.
Emanuel Adebayor (2), Christian Eriksen and Gylfi Sigurdsson were the other players to get their names on the scoresheet – two of those players have since left the club.
Midfielder Paulinho moved to England from Brazilian outfit Corinthians during the summer of 2013 for a fee of £17million.
Despite the big transfer fee, he was not able to live up to expectations as he struggled to find form and consistency during his time at the north London club.
Paulinho made 67 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, scoring ten goals and supplying seven assists.
He left the Premier League in 2015 to join the fast-growing Chinese Super League where he is currently playing for top tier side GZ Evergrande.
