Kane’s goal added to those from Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Raheem Sterling, and extended England’s perfect start to their Euro 2016 qualification campaign.
The 21-year-old has scored 29 goals in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season, and was given a warm welcome when he replaced Rooney with 20 minutes left.
He’ll now be hoping to make his first start for his country in the friendly match against Italy on Tuesday evening. Reports in the Daily Star suggest that Danny Welbeck will miss the game through injury, leaving a space open for the in form Spurs star.
Kane was quick to acknowledge praise from his supporters on social media website Twitter after the game…

The England newcomer, who was quoted by the Star, also added during a TV interview: “It’s not a bad start. I dreamed of this and it’s just a bit of a blur at the moment. I’m delighted for the lads.
“It’s the best moment of my career. To represent my country at senior level is the top and hopefully I can continue to keep doing it and hopefully this goal is the first of many.”
