Yes, Harry Kane 22, feels he can break Wayne Rooney’s England record. Both men were on target for England in the 2-0 win over Switzerland and the young Three Lions addition while feeling happy for Rooney for breaking the 45 year old record set by Bobby Charlton feels he has time to break the record.
Rooney reached the 49 goal mark against San Marino and crossed it against Switzerland recording his 50th goal for England. Really, its a great feat and like someone jealous would say “He won’t shut up about it”, i ask who will? Being the highest goal scorer for Country ever .. that’s a lot. Nigeria is still looking for someone to break Rashidi Yekini’s (RIP) 37 goals for Nigeria and i am not sure any of the present guys will do it … that’s talk for another day
So back to Harry kane, He is 22, had a fantastic season last season with Tottenham with 31 goals in all competitions but has been off the first 4 games of this season. At the moment, Kane has only 4 goals for England, Rooney at 22 years already had 15 goals for England. Rooney will be 30 soon and will still be relevant for England for like 2-3 years.
The big question is not if Harry Kane wishes to break the record rather it is a question of can he actually do it? Many believe he is not that talented a player (beef), others believe he is just a one-season miracle, interestingly my opinion of him is still open. I guess we will have to let Kane prove us wrong or right.
Will Harry Kane regain his form for Tottenham like last season?
