Kane’s goal against Senegal was his 52nd goal for his country and means he is just one shy of equaling Wayne Rooney’s all-time England record.
“I’m excited to get to do it,” Kane added. “If it can be in this tournament, great, because it means the team is probably doing well too. We’ll have to wait and see, but it was nice to be one step closer.”
“I was lucky to be playing when Wayne broke the record and I saw how much it meant to him.”
