Harry Kane now has 52 goals for his country following England’s last 16 win over Senegal in which the England skipper scored the second of three goals which confirmed England’s pathway to the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
They will now face current champions France in the last eight fixture on Saturday.
When did Harry Kane first play for England?
Kane first debuted for England on 27 March 2015 after being selected by the then manager Roy Hodgson for England’s UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match against Lithuania.
Kane came on in the second half replacing Roone and scored within 80 seconds with a header from a Raheem Sterling cross.
He now has 67 caps for England and 48 goals.
How many penalties has Harry Kane scored for England?
After last night’s match against Germany, Kane now has 15 penalties for England. He is the leading penalty taker for England and has scored 14 out of the 17 penalties he has taken.
Kane tops the list of penalty takers that includes Frank Lampard, Rooney, Alan Shearer and David Beckham.
Against which opposition is Harry Kane most successful?
Harry Kane has scored against 24 countries in total and 13 of those countries have seen more than one Kane goal.
Unsurprisingly, Kane’s efforts in the recent Euros qualifying fixtures have meant he is now most successful against San Marino. He has a total of five goals against the microstate and his four goals are the highest number of goals he has scored in any international match.
The Spurs striker has four goals against Montenegro, Bulgaria and Albania and three against Panama.
What are Harry Kane’s overall goal statistics?
Before he was captain, Harry Kane had seven goals to his name. Kane took on the captaincy role ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and now has a total of 49 caps as England skipper.
He has scored 21 goals at home, 20 goals away and 9 goals at neutral stadiums. Kane has seen most success as an England goal scorer during World Cup qualifiers, scoring a total of 17 goals. The 28-year-old also has 15 goals to his name in European Championship qualifiers.
Kane has a total of five hat tricks for England which is one behind the all-time record for the Lions. Jimmy Greaves has six hat-tricks to his name and the last one was scored against Norway in a friendly which saw England win 6-1 thanks to Greaves’ four goals.
With so few goals between them, England fans will be excited to watch Kane’s overtaking of the England and Manchester United legend’s goal tally.
Rooney has 120 caps for England with 53 goals whereas Kane is at almost half the number of caps with only a 1 goal difference. If Kane is able to surpass Rooney’s 53 goal total at this year’s World Cup, he will undoubtedly become known as England’s greatest ever striker.
Kane may well achieve this accolade when England take on France in the quarter-final stages of the competition this weekend. ITV will be the broadcasters for the quarter-final fixture while fans can also stream on ITVX with a free account.
