Harry Kane is England’s all-time leading goalscorer, having broken up goals for his country since making his international debut in 2015.
The Tottenham striker scored one of his 54 goals for the Three Lions with a penalty against Italy, setting another record after beating Tottenham’s tally with Jimmy Greaves earlier this season.
Here’s how the England captain has fared well in previous international tournaments and how his goals have been achieved over the years.
Not much came out of England’s Euro 2016 campaign alive. To his credit, Kane managed to get himself out of the corner immediately after conceding four goals in a 2-1 defeat by Iceland in the round of 16.
In what was his first taste of major international football, Kane had 13 shots but was unable to hit the back of the net as the Three Lions were out.
World Cup 2018
England headed into the 2018 World Cup with little fanfare and a lack of pressure, with not much expected of Gareth Southgate’s side.
Instead, Kane scored five goals in the group stage and another against Colombia in the last 16 as England reached the semi-finals, where they lost to Croatia. In the end they finished fourth, losing the third place match to Belgium.

He could not overly influence the proceedings as England suffered a penalty shootout defeat in the final at Wembley.
World Cup 2022
