Kane Certain To Break England’s Goal Record

England rolled past Bulgaria with a straightforward 4-0 win at Wembley, with Harry Kane grabbing a hat trick. The path to Euro 2020 looks downhill from here, which means Gareth Southgate has the luxury of time to work on improving and fixing areas that are sub-optimal, particularly the midfield, where (Harry Winks aside) there isn’t much in the way of creativity.

Speaking of Kane, he’s up to 25 international goals, having leap-frogged the likes of Geoff Hurst and Stan Mortensen. Barring injury or sudden decline, he could challenge the all-time mark of 53 held by Wayne Rooney. Kane turned 26 in July, at the same age Rooney had 28 goals to his name. But, of course, Rooney scored his last international goal at the age of 30. And you’d expect Kane to go on well beyond that.
