England captain Harry Kane put in a great performance on Friday as he played the full 90 minutes in England’s 5-0 thrashing of the Czech Republic.
It was a great way for the Three Lions to start their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, as they showed their rivals that they are a force to be reckoned with.
While Raheem Sterling deservedly took home the accolades after scoring a hat-trick, Kane was once again at his best.
The Totteham striker has been playing a slightly deeper role in recent games for England as he often drops into midfield and tries to find the runners with his passing.
This worked brilliantly for England’s first goal as Kane played a lovely ball through for Sancho who squared it for Sterling to tap it in.
While Kane’s hold up play, intelligence, and passing have shone through in recent internationals, his goalscoring record over the past two years for the Three Lions is also outstanding.
In fact, the Golden Boot winner at last years’ World Cup has scored more international goals since the start of 2017 than any striker barring Cristiano Ronaldo.
Surprisingly, Eriksen is third in the list, having hit the back of the net 14 times for Denmark since 2017.
