The England captain broke the tie for the hosts at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium just over seven minutes after the Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon, after Juventus loan Dejan Kulusevski passed the ball to Kane.
There was nothing Brentford goalkeeper David Raya could do against the searing shot that flew into the top corner of the goal.
BT Sport Football published the video of the goal Captioned: ‘Harry Kane with a rocket. Simply sensational free kick from the Spurs captain opens the scoring!’

Spurs are looking to maintain their run for a European final, but much uncertainty remains over Kane’s future with the club.
Some reports suggest that Kane plans to end his contract with Tottenham before leaving next summer on a free transfer.
Daniel Levy has promised he will not sell Kane to an English rival despite strong rumors
But the club can also listen to offers to sell it this year. While Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been adamant he would not sell Kane to an English rival, Manchester United remain heavy favorites to sign the 29-year-old in the off-season.
Peter Crouch said that after speaking to Kane about his uncertain future at Tottenham, Man United are “the only real option” if an exit occurs.
Another report suggested that Kane’s representatives had met with PSG boss Luis Campos to discuss a move to the French capital this summer.
Levy told Tottenham fans that he understands their frustration that the club has not lived up to expectations, though he vows to work “tirelessly” to improve Spurs’ fortunes.
