Wayne Rooney insists Harry Kane will break his England record

Former England captain Wayne Rooney believes Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane will break his goalscoring record for the national team (h/t The Sunday Times).

Rooney is the all-time leading goalscorer for the England national team. The former Manchester United man scored 53 goals for the Three Lions in 120 appearances.

Our star striker Kane is currently on 32 goals from only 45 matches. And Rooney reckons it is only a matter of time before the 26-year-old overtakes his record for the England national team (h/t The Sunday Times).

“I don’t think it will take long for Harry Kane to claim my England record and it would be a proud moment for me.”

Kane has been brilliant for the England national team so far. The 26-year-old was key as the Three Lions made it to the semi-final in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Tottenham man won the Golden Boot for the tournament.

Following up on that, Kane was once again exceptional in England’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying phase. Our striker finished as the top-scorer in the qualifying campaign as well, with 12 strikes to his name.

Rooney also went on to compare Kane to former Netherlands striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, who tasted immense success during his time with Manchester United in the early 2000’s (h/t The Sunday Times).

“Harry is a classic No 9, the closest I’ve seen to Ruud. If I were building a team, he’s the one I’d start with. Harry Kane: there’s my No 9. Then I’d build the rest around him.”

It is high praise for Kane coming from the all-time leading goalscorer for England and Manchester United. And, it is without an iota of doubt, well-earned.

Kane has grown into one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe over the past five years. With speculations surrounding his future at our club, let’s hope he stays with Tottenham and goes on to topple all kinds of records.
