Hart Kane position among England’s all-time top goalscorers

England captain Harry Kane is well on the way to becoming the Three Lions’ most prolific ever marksman.

The Tottenham striker has made conducive progress since his international debut back in 2015, blasting his way up the list of legendary finishers with top spot now in his sights.

How many goals has Harry Kane scored for England?

As of September 4, 2021, Hary Kane has scored 39 goals in 62 appearances for England.

His first ever Three Lions goal came on debut, coming on as a substitute against Lithuania for current record scorer Wayne Rooney and nodding in a header a mere 79 seconds entering the field.

He would only find the next six times in his opening 17 Three Lions games but has since bagged 33 times in just 45 appearances – testament to how potent a finisher the Spurs star has become in recent years.

Hary Kane, 28, has three England hat-tricks to his name. His first came against Panama at the 2018 World Cup, before bagging trebles against Bulgaria and Montenegro in Euro 2020 qualifying a year later.

His 11 penalties are the highest total scored by any individual in an England, usurping Frank Lampard’s previous record of nine.

On a slightly quirkier note, Kane is one of only three players to have scored for England on every day of the week, along with Rooney and Lampard.

Who is England’s all-time top goalscorer?

Wayne Rooney currently tops the England goalscoring charts with 53 goals for the Three Lions.

He sits four goals ahead of Sir Bobby Charlton, the 1966 World Cup winner who saw his 49-goal tally lead the way for  45 years before being overtaken by Rooney.

Gary Lineker is England’s third-highest goalscorer ever, sitting just one goal behind Charlton on 48 strikes – while Jimmy Greaves sits fourth with 44 international goals.

Given Kane is not too far away from these totals, it is fair to assume that the current England skipper has a strong chance of setting a new record total before retiring.

However, it is important to acknowledge that Rooney was only one year older than Kane is now when reaching 50 goals – a reminder that the talisman will need luck with form and injuries to become the new all-time top scorer.
