Harry Kane breaks the record set by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

By scoring his 50th international goal in just 71 games, Harry Kane has surpassed both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

England avoided embarrassment as Kane’s late penalty earned them a draw against Germany in Munich, despite the fact that they had trailed for the whole of the second half.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker became only the second English player after Wayne Rooney to score half a century of goals, as well as the 72nd man in football history, achieving the feat significantly faster than Ronaldo, who took 114 games, and Messi, who took 107.

After the game, social media was flooded with tributes to England’s captain, with former Three Lions striker Gary Lineker leading the charge.

@HKane has 50 goals. This is an outstanding achievement. When England gives it their all, they play so much better. Lineker tweeted, “Too much skill to be excessively careful, and it doesn’t play to their strengths.”

Kane stated his delight at reaching the half-century mark after the game.

“You know, it’s a pretty lovely sensation.” In the beginning of the game, I had a couple of chances. “Obviously, the first one went over the bar, and Neuer came up big for the second,” Kane added.

“I thought it was just one of those days, but we kept going and perhaps played our greatest football in the final half-hour.” Physically, we were really powerful and capable of scoring the goal; it’s just a shame we didn’t succeed in the end.” I enjoy scoring goals and have done so in the past, especially for my nation. The most essential thing for me is to assist the team whenever possible. It’s good to get back on track with a win today; it wasn’t an easy place to visit, and now we have two games at home to attempt to earn two victories.”

Kane is currently just three goals behind Wayne Rooney’s all-time England goal total of 53, and at 28 years old, he’s a long shot to not just break, but absolutely obliterate it – but then again, we said the same thing about Rooney and Michael Owen, didn’t we?

With a well-taken close-range strike five minutes into the second half, Jonas Hoffman gave Germany the lead, but Kane converted from the spot late on after Nico Schlotterbeck was tripped in the box.

With only one point collected from two games, England is glued to the bottom of their Nations League group.
