Harry Kane delighted with England exploits; focuses on next Spurs match

The 22-year-old Tottenham man also praised Manchester United's Wayne Rooney for becoming England's top goalscorer.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane continued his impressive form for England by scoring the opener in the Three Lion's 2-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday night.

Though Wayne Rooney stole the headlines after his record breaking 50th goal for for his country, courtesy of a penalty won by Raheem Sterling, edging him clear of Manchester United legend and World Cup winner Sir Bobby Charlton, it is hard to disagree that Tottenham striker Kane's introduction was the catalyst to Roy Hodgson's breakthrough against the Swiss.

Until then, England looked to be lacking the attacking threat to occupy the visiting defence, with little more than half chances coming the way of Rooney and co. 

Kane took to his Facebook account after the match to congratulate Rooney, joke about his own attempts to pursue the goalscoring record, and turn attention to Tottenham's game with Sunderland at the weekend.


Delighted to get another England Football Team goal and for Wayne Rooney on his record - only another 47 to go for me! Bring on Sunday's game!

The 22-year-old's goal for his country, a smart left foot shot from inside the box, was his third in just four caps, and Kane could scarcely have hoped to enjoy a better international break after managing to score in his third consecutive qualifying match for England, having also scored in Saturday's win over San Marino.

For Kane, Sunday may not come quick enough, given his form this week and how he has struggled to score for Spurs so far this season. If he can get off the mark for his club side, and help Mauricio Pochetinno's men to a first league win, it would have certainly been a fine few days for the Londoner.
