Gary Lineker posts classy message to four-goal England hero Harry Kane

Posted by

There are some parallels to Harry Kane’s career for club and country with Gary Lineker.

The former Tottenham and England man retired from international duty on 48 goals, but still kept banging them in for Spurs.

With his four-goal salvo coming as part of an incredible 10 goals scored against San Marino on Monday night, that’s drawn Kane alongside Lineker.

With a good few years left at the top yet, he’ll soon surpass both Lineker and the next person on the list – Sir Bobby Charlton, who has 49.

Wayne Rooney is only a little further ahead on 53, and Kane might be expected to pass that within the year.

Far from being annoyed that he’d be pushed further down the all-time scorers list for England, Lineker sent Kane a classy tweet in the aftermath of the match.

At just 28 years of age, there’s no ceiling to what Kane can achieve if he puts his mind to it.

Antonio Conte will surely be hoping that he translates his international form onto the Premier League stage too.
