Harry Kane finds form
Harry Kane had a rather slow start to the European Championships this summer.
The Tottenham star headed into the competition on the back of a scintillating club campaign that saw him notch both the most goals and most assists in the Premier League.
As a result, there was a lot of expectation that Kane would be integral to England’s success this summer.
However, the Euro 2020 group stage would see Kane fail to find the net in all three games, with the Three Lions’ only goals having instead come from Raheem Sterling.
But, in the knockout rounds, Kane finally broke his duck, scoring some crucial goals – the first of which came as England’s second in a historic last-16 win over Germany.
Kane would then net a brace as the Three Lions hammered Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-finals.
Harry Kane is well and truly BACK! 👑

Then, on Wednesday, Kane netted a goal that will no doubt live long in the memory of all England fans.
Gareth Southgate and co. were taken to extra time by Denmark. However, Raheem Sterling would win a penalty shortly before the end of first-half extra time.
Kane stepped up and, despite missing the penalty, scored on the rebound to send England into their first-ever European Championship final.

Harry Kane can overtake Gary Lineker vs Italy
His winning goal at Wembley etched Kane’s name into the history books of his nation.
The Spurs forward has now scored 10 goals at major tournaments for England – four this summer and six at the 2018 World Cup.
This means that Kane is tied with Gary Lineker for the most England goals at major tournaments.
So, if he scores on Sunday vs Italy, then Kane will become the Three Lions’ all-time top-scorer at major tournaments.
