Harry Kane is one of England’s best ever strikers
Rooney, Lineker, Shearer — where does Harry Kane rank in England’s all-time scoring charts?
England captain Harry Kane is well on the way to becoming the Three Lions’ most prolific ever marksman.
The Tottenham star has made startling progress since his international debut back in 2015, blasting his way up the list of legendary finishers with top spot now in his sights.
But just when may Kane take on the mantle of England’s greatest ever goalscorer? Who is he battling against? Which have been his greatest goals?
We have taken a closer look.
How many goals has Harry Kane scored for England?
As of September 4, 2021, Kane has scored 39 goals in 62 appearances for England.
His first ever Three Lions goal came on debut, coming on as a substitute against Lithuania for current record scorer Wayne Rooney and nodding in a header a mere 79 seconds entering the field.
He would only find the next six times in his opening 17 Three Lions games but has since bagged 33 times in just 45 appearances – testament to how potent a finisher the Spurs star has become in recent years.
Kane, 28, has three England hat-tricks to his name. His first came against Panama at the 2018 World Cup, before bagging trebles against Bulgaria and Montenegro in Euro 2020 qualifying a year later.
