Along with England’s victory against Poland, Harry Kane acquired yet another landmark for the Three Lions with his goal.

Harry Kane bagged a spot-kick goal just under 20 minutes against Poland as England played their World Cup qualifying fixture at Wembley. But the visiting team grabbed the equaliser in the 59th minute with the help of Jakub Moder. However, a late half-volley from Harry Maguire saw the Three Lions a route to Qatar 2022.

Kane now becomes the all-time top penalty scorer with his opening strike from the 12-yard spot. With his 10th international goal from the spot, the Tottenham forward surpassed Frank Lampard’s record. Along with that, Kane has now netted on all seven days of the week for England. He, therefore, becomes the third player to do so after Wayne Rooney and Lampard.

He keeps on moving ahead.

With the help of Kane and Maguire, Gareth Southgate’s side now has three wins out of three. This means that they stand strong on top of Group I in the World Cup qualification round. We can say that Kane’s involvement in the international fixtures has been phenomenal. He has been part of 30 goals in 21 games, marking 22 goals and 8 assists.

Since October 2017, the Spurs striker has scored at least one time in each of his 12 appearances for his nation. And now, with his 34 goals, he has been chasing Wayne Rooney’s all-time record of 53 for England. Among some famous names, Kane is already sixth on England’s all-time scoring list. The other names who are ahead of him are Rooney, Bobby Charlton, Gary Linekar, Jimmy Greaves and Michael Owen.
