Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reckons Harry Kane can definitely overtake Wayne Rooney and become England’s all-time record goalscorer.
Kane bagged his second Three Lions treble in their 4-0 victory over Bulgaria at Wembley on Saturday to held England maintain their perfect start to their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
After sweeping home from Raheem Sterling’s pass in the first-half, the skipper confidently dispatched two penalties in the second period – his 13th and 14th in succession from the spot to complete another routine win for Gareth Southgate’s men.
That hat-trick means that Kane has now scored 25 goals in 40 England appearances, moving him 28 behind former captain Rooney, who notched up 53 in 120 matches.
Asked on Instagram whether Kane can move to the top of the tree, Chamberlain said: “How many has he got? 28? 25 in 40? Yeah, I think he can definitely do that, I’m more disappointed I haven’t been thrown in the conversation personally. I’ve got a chance!”
