Harry Kane is set to tell Gareth Southgate that he wants to be selected for England’s World Cup clash against Wales on Tuesday evening, according to The Telegraph.

Kane is just three goals away from breaking England’s all-time goalscoring record which is held by former Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney, who netted 53 times for his country.

The 29-year-old is yet to find the back of net in England’s opening two Group B fixtures against Iran and the USA and is said to be desperate to play as much as possible.

Kane is the current Golden Boot holder after he scored on six occasions at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and already has ground to make up on the likes of Kylian Mbappe, who has registered three goals for France already.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward suffered an injury scare after sustaining a knock on his ankle against Iran which resulted in him undergoing a scan on the issue with Southgate revealing ater the USA match that the Three Lions captain did feel some discomfort in the joint when striking the ball (Guardian).

Kane is determined to break as many records as he can and will want to find the back of the net against Wales to kickstart his World Cup campaign as he becomes the first man to win consecutive Golden Boots.

Wales have looked shaky at the back in their two matches and it should represent a good opportunity for Kane to get off the mark.
