As Harry Kane placed the ball on the penalty spot, memories must have come flooding back.
It was the first time the Manchester United transfer target had stepped up to take a penalty in an England shirt since blazing the ball over the bar in the closing stages of the Three Lions‘ heartbreaking 2-1 World Cup quarter-final defeat to France in Qatar 103 days earlier.
But with the added pressure of knowing a goal would make him his country’s all-time leading goalscorer, Kane was the calmest man inside the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
He raced away to celebrate with both relief and pride painted across his face. He had moved ahead of Wayne Rooney‘s record of 53 England goals and taken his tally to a record-breaking 54.
With him now having cemented his place at the top of England’s goalscoring charts, he will be dreaming of surpassing Alan Shearer‘s record of 260 Premier League goals and writing his name into Premier League folklore as the division’s deadliest striker of all-time.
But although Kane has had no trouble in achieving personal milestones, having also become Tottenham Hotspur‘s record goalscorer earlier this season, he is still yet to win a trophy in his career.
