Kane now England’s sixth top scorer, eclipsing Shearer, Lofthouse and Finney with quickfire hat-trick in 1,000th game – The Sun

HARRY KANE became England's sixth top scorer, eclipsing Alan Shearer, Nat Lofthouse and Tom Finney during his nation's historic 1,000th game.

The Tottenham man, 26, scored a quickfire hat-trick – his 29th, 30th and 31st goals for his country – as the Three Lions roared to a 5-0 lead in the first-half.

In doing so Kane leapfrogged three national icons – now just nine goals behind Michael Owen in fifth place.

There were plenty of frustrated fans ahead of kick-off with Gareth Southgate leaving out the likes of in-form Tammy Abraham and James Maddison.

But it was Oxlade-Chamberlain – preferred to the Leicester playmaker – who got England off to a flyer with a thumping low effort to make it 1-0.

Kane then scored two headed efforts in just six minutes – both from Ben Chilwell crosses – as the Three Lions all-but booked their spot at Euro 2020.

It got even better 13 minutes later as Marcus Rashford scored a lovely, composed effort to make it 4-0.
