Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane may not have won a trophy with his beloved boyhood club just yet, but he will have his eye on a few all-time scorer records.

Kane has made a brilliant start to his Spurs and England careers over the last five years and is well on his way to surpassing some of the biggest records in world football (Tottenham).

Harry now ranks as third in the charts for England goals scored as a Spurs player. Kane is on 25 in 40 caps so far, with just Vivian Woodward (27 in 21) and Jimmy Greaves (28 in 42) above him.

Jimmy Greaves – 28 goals in 42 caps as a Spurs player (at Spurs 1961-1969)
Vivian Woodward – 27 goals in 21 caps (1901-1909)
HARRY KANE – 25 goals in 40 caps (2011-
Gary Lineker – 19 goals in 38 caps (1989-1992)
Jermain Defoe – 16 goals in 49 caps (2004-2014)
Bobby Smith – 15 goals in 13 caps (1955-1964)
Martin Chivers – 13 goals in 24 caps (1968-1976)
Willie Hall – 9 goals in 10 caps (1932-1939)
Martin Peters – 9 goals in 34 caps (1970-1975)
Teddy Sheringham – 9 goals in 38 caps (1992-2003)
Glenn Hoddle – 8 goals in 44 caps (1975-1987)
Darren Anderton – 7 goals in 30 caps (1992-2004)
Peter Crouch – 6 goals in 8 caps (2009-2011)

In terms of the all-time England scorer, Kane is now in 14th place, but well on pace to beat Wayne Rooney’s 53 goals in 120 games.

1 Wayne Rooney – 53 goals in 120 caps (capped 2003-2018)
2 Bobby Charlton – 49 in 106 (1958-1970)
3 Gary Lineker – 48 in 80 (1984-1992)
4 Jimmy Greaves – 44 in 57 (1959-1967)
5 Michael Owen – 40 in 89 (1998-2008)
6= Nat Lofthouse – 30 in 33 (1950-1958)
6= Alan Shearer – 30 in 63 (1992-2000)
6= Tom Finney – 30 in 76 (1946-1958)
9 Vivian Woodward – 29 in 23 (1903-1911)
10 Frank Lampard – 29 in 106 (1999-2014)
11 Steve Bloomer – 28 in 23 (1895-1907)
12 David Platt – 27 in 62 (1989-1996)
13 Bryan Robson – 26 in 90 (1981-1991)
14 HARRY KANE – 25 in 40 (2015- )
15 Geoff Hurst – 24 in 49 (1965-1972)

Finally, one of the biggest records out there, the Premier League top ever goal-scorer. Famously held by Alan Shearer, who scored a whopping 260 goals in the Prem, Harry Kane is still some way off the total he needs. However, yet again, he is on pace to do so at just 27-years-old (Premier League).

Alan Shearer – 260

Wayne Rooney – 208

Andrew Cole – 187

Frank Lampard – 177

Thierry Henry – 175

Sergio Aguero – 170

Robbie Fowler – 163

Jermain Defoe – 162

Michael Owen – 150

Les Ferdinand – 149

Teddy Sherringham – 146

Robin Van Persie – 144

HARRY KANE – 128
