Tottenham Hotspur hitman, Harry Kane, is a genuine candidate to become England’s best-ever goalscorer if his free-scoring form for the national team continues to thrive
Kane’s hat-trick against Bulgaria on Sunday made him the club’s third-best marksman for England, as he has now scored 25 goals for the national team.
According to the club’s official website, Kane is currently three goals adrift of Jimmy Greaves, who tops the list with 28 goals in 42 caps for the Three Lions as a Spurs player (1961-69).
But, before reaching that landmark, the 26-year-old will have to surpass Vivian Woodward first, who netted 27 goals in 21 caps for England back at the beginning of last century (1901-09).

What’s more, he has recently joined the elite, making to all-time England’s top 15 goalscorers, currently topped by Wayne Rooney who has 53 goals in 120 caps on his account.
Although he has almost reached the halfway to Rooney’s record, Kane has admitted he is ‘a long way off’ before shattering the Manchester United’s legend achievement with England.
“When I score for England, it’s obviously something that people bring up,” he told The Guardian. “But I’ve said before it’s still a long way off and there’s a lot that can happen.”
