Harry Kane was in ruthless form for England earlier this evening, having netted a first-half hat-trick against Albania in a comfortable 5-0 victory.

The 28-year-old led the Three Lions out at Wembley in the World Cup qualifier and put his slow start in front of goal at club level behind him to net the perfect hat-trick.

Kane has only managed to score one Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur this season in ten Premier League outings (transfermarkt) and is already nine behind Liverpool’s Mo Salah in the race for the golden boot (BBC).

The Spurs man bagged England’s second of the evening when he found himself in space six yards out to head home Jordan Henderson’s cross.

Ten minutes later, Kane returned the favour when he played in Henderson to score England’s third goal.

He found the back of the net for the second time, thirteen minutes before half time when he made space for himself on the left-hand side to drill the ball high into the net.

On the cusp of half-time, Kane kept his best for last when he showed great athleticism with an emphatic bicycle kick to take home the match ball with the ‘perfect’ hat-trick, after scoring with his left foot, right foot and head.
