Harry Kane has already caught up with the legendary Bobby Charlton, and it should only be a matter of time when he also closed to Wayne Rooney.
On the way to the record scorer of the English football national team, Kane with the victory hit at 2: 1 on Saturday against Switzerland by trading fold with the same 49 times successful Sir Bobby. Only four more hits are up to Rooney, and in the World Cup year it could not last until Kane has reached this brand.
“Before us is a big year with more international matches and more goals,” the captain said. Already on March 29 against the Ivory Coast, the 28-year-old could become the sole number two of the ranking. “You have to be ready for every moment for every moment,” emphasized Tottenham Hotspur scorer. It does not bother him that there are many penalties in his balance sheet. “I train a lot and often work,” Kane betrayed the nerves in the 78th minute.
National coach Gareth Southgate was pleased about the good test against the initially leading Swiss. Under Southgate England is still unbeaten in 21 games – longer than ever. However, the lost penalty shooting in the EM final does not count against Italy. And the World Cup title of 1966 Charlton Kane has ahead – still.
