With his penalty-kick goal against Poland on Wednesday, Harry Kane became England’s all-time leading penalty scorer.

Kane scored in the 19th minute of the World Cup qualifier at Wembley Stadium, but Poland equalized in the 58th minute by Jakub Moder.

However, England will win 2-1 thanks to a late Harry Maguire goal, making it three wins from three to begin qualification for Qatar 2022.

Kane shattered Frank Lampard’s Three Lions record with his 10th career international goal from the penalty spot.

Also, Kane has now scored for England on all seven days of the week, becoming just the third player in Three Lions history to do so, joining Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard.

In recent years, the Tottenham striker has been in prolific form for England, scoring 30 goals in 21 European Championship/World Cup qualifying matches (22 goals, 8 assists),

Kane has scored at least once in each of his last 12 such starts, dating back to October of last year.

Kane has 34 international goals, one less than Wayne Rooney’s all-time England record of 53.

Kane is now sixth on England’s all-time scoring list, trailing only by Rooney, Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker, Jimmy Greaves, and Michael Owen.
