Harry Kane ended a six-goal drought for England as he got on the mark in their 2-0 victory over Albania in their World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

After a fairly slow start, the Three Lions captain showed good instinct in the box to head home the first goal of the game in the 38th minute.

For Kane, the goal came as a relief as it was his first goal in national colors in almost 500 days. It was also his 33rd strike in an England jersey.

Asides his goal, the Tottenham star teed up Mason Mount brilliantly in the second half to seal a convinving win for Gareth Southagte’s side.

Speaking after the game, Harry Kane was more than convinced England deserved to win.

“I thought it was a really good performance, to be honest” said the captain as per the Three Lions social media channel.

“It’s never easy coming away from home against a tough side – maybe we were a little bit slow to start and we changed our formation halfway through the first half and I think that definitely helped – we got more runners in the box and more attacking players.”

“Then obviously getting the goal before half time was great. I thought we controlled the second half well – they didn’t create too many chances and overall, it was a good night.”

Speaking on ending his goal-drought, he added: “I think I’ve always said as a striker, sometimes you go through spells where everything you touch goes in, and when it just doesn’t quite go your way.”

“I think I had a few off the line in that spell, an offside goal that I don’t think was offside, but that’s part of being a striker. You’ve just got to stay focused on doing your job for the team, and thankfully we did that as a team today – it was great to get the three points.”
