Harry Kane flies towards Rooney’s record. The Tottenham forward already has the all-time top scorer of the English team in sight and his perfect hat-trick against Albania last Friday – with the right, with the left and with his head – brings him even closer to the Manchester United legend. If nothing goes wrong in the next few years, Kane is going to smash all records scorers of the English team since In 66 international games he has 44 goals and 14 goals. At 28 years of age, he still has plenty of room to fatten up his personal stats.

Wayne Rooney He left the national team several seasons ago and is now enjoying his coaching career managing England’s second division Derby County, but before he managed to put his name at the top of the national team. In 120 games played, Rooney scored a total of 53 goals and handed out 21 passes. Behind the former Old Trafford captain there are still three more players: Bobby Charlton (49 goals in 106 games), Gary Lineker (48 goals in 80 games) and Jimmy Graeves (44 goals in 57 games), the same ones that Harry Kane already has.

After a summer in which his move to Manchester City was thwarted, Kane is now trying to lead a Tottenham that, with the help of Antonio Conte, seeks to continue climbing positions in the Premier League standings.
