England goal King Kane aims for a century

Harry Kane thinks he could score 100 goals for England.

The 29-year-old became his country’s all-time top scorer when he broke Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 with a penalty against Italy last week and followed it up with a 55 in Sunday’s win over Ukraine.

The Tottenham striker, who has made 82 appearances, says he intends to play for his country for as long as possible, so turning a century is not out of the question.

“Sure getting 100 will be tough, but I never rule anything out,” he told the PA news agency.

“I’m still young, I’m 29, still fit and strong. I want to play for England for as long as I can.”

“Every game that there is, I will be getting ahead to try to play.

“We’re going to go step by step. The next step will be to try to get to 60.”

“One hundred is not out of the question, it will be extremely difficult, but we will have to see how the next few years go.”

Kane’s record-breaking moment means the number 54 will always be significant and is marking the achievement in a special culinary way.

He has designed a takeaway burger on the menu at TOCA Social bar in London, a football-based entertainment venue in which Kane has invested, with 54 per cent of each sale going to the Harry Kane Foundation.

So how is it going in the kitchen for the England captain, who has hired a private chef to help him up his game?

“I enjoy a burger and wanted to go a healthier route,” he added.

“It’s just food that I enjoy eating. It’s half healthy and half enjoyable.”

“My skills weren’t that bad. I make breakfast for the kids most mornings, but it’s pretty basic.

“I feel like it was okay and I handled it pretty well. It wasn’t as bad as people might think.”

Kane established his foundation in late 2022 with the goal of helping children transform a generation’s thinking about mental health.

The launch coincided with an appearance on CBeebies Bedtime stories, which she revealed had a blast with her three children.

“I think they loved it, but it was weird for them because I’m usually the one who reads them stories in their rooms at bedtime,” she said.

“I think it was strange for them to see me on TV reading stories. But it’s not just my kids, my friends at Spurs and England say their kids loved it and they watch it most nights, so I’m glad I did a good job”.

“But that was fun and different and with three kids, it was nice to do something different for the other kids around the world.”

With a World Cup Golden Boot, three Premier League Golden Boots and Tottenham’s all-time goalscoring record under his belt, Kane has already achieved an incredible amount.

But standing alone as England’s top scorer ranks number one and it’s an achievement he never thought possible when he started out as a boy playing for Ridgeway Rovers.

“This is at the top. I am extremely passionate about my country, I love playing for England,” he said.

“Even when I was younger, England meant everything to me, watching them grow up.

“To be in that company now. To think of all the legends and English strikers who have played the game and to be number one now is beyond my dreams.”

“Playing for England is special and to have this record is special.

“I don’t think I dreamed that far. I dreamed of playing for England and scoring for England; being the record scorer wasn’t even in my dreams.”

“I’ve had so many great moments and I look forward to more to come.”
