All hail Harry Kane! England winners & losers as striker hits new heights in legendary career in win vs Italy
All hail Harry Kane! England’s new record goalscorer.
On a night which saw England make history in Naples, it was their captain who stole the show when he struck from the penalty spot to score his 54th international goal.
The finish pushed him past Wayne Rooney at the top of the England scoring charts and helped the Three Lions claim their first win on Italian soil since 1961.
Declan Rice was also on target, with the West Ham skipper opening the scoring early on before Kane’s spot kick doubled the visitors’ lead before half-time.
Italy responded well after the break and pulled a goal back through Mateo Retegui, but they couldn’t find an equaliser, even after Luke Shaw had been sent off 10 minutes from full-time.
The win sees England get off to the perfect start in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, while the Italians are left to lick their wounds after a first home European qualifying defeat in 24 years.
