In the 70th minute of Sunday’s World Cup qualifier between England and Andorra, the Three Lions extended their lead after Jack Grealish and Mason Mount cut the Andorran defence apart.
Grealish slipped the ball through to Mount with a lovely pass as he was driving forward on the edge of the area, the Chelsea star then left his defender sliding with some tidy footwork.
Mount was then brought down recklessly, leaving the referee with no choice but to award a spot-kick.
Harry Kane stepped up and showed that he’s still cool, calm and collected despite a summer transfer saga, as he tucked the ball right into the bottom left corner with a fine strike.
