After his Monday four goal haul, the Tottenham striker now matches Gary Lineker’s England total of 48 goals.

Kane said, “Everytime I don an England shirt, I feel proud. When I score goals, it’s one of my most enjoyable feelings in my life.” “It is nice to be one of those people.

“We need to continue working. It feels like our team has been steadily improving each year. It is important to take advantage of every session and learn from it. 

Southgate of England said England can be proud about their season as international football ends in 2021.

“I enjoy the job – it is a great privilege. Southgate explained that while the team supports what is being done, there are still ways to improve and many more things to come. The qualification was obtained in Budapest, Warsaw, and Albania. 

“I must credit our players and all staff for an excellent year. While we can’t control the intensity of the opposition, their mentality and how they applied themselves to the game was remarkable.

Southgate spoke highly of Kane who now stands five goals ahead Wayne Rooney, 53, and Smith-Rowe’s score of Trent Alexander Arnold as England’s greatest ever goal scorer.

“If we’d left Kane for half an hour more, Wayne Rooney’s family would still be calling us.” Southgate stated. Southgate said, “He’s a fantastic goalscorer. We wanted to give it the chance tonight and we were pleased with his performance.”

“I felt Emile gave a great account throughout the week. His tight control and excellent communication skills are exceptional. He should continue doing what he’s doing. The game ended with a young team tonight. 

Alexander-Arnold should have a great night in England. With a few assists, he showed his talent and will return home knowing that he was a part of the success.

Southgate’s team had to wait for their last win in the campaign, despite beating Albania 5-0 at Wembley. Poland kept within three points of Andorra (4-1). 

But the victory over San Marino put England on an unassailable tally of 26 points and gives the Three Lions another shot at tournament victory after losing the Euro 2020 final at Wembley against Italy in the summer.

Southgate currently earns £3million a year, but he can expect sharp pay rise taking him beyond the £5m mark if bonuses are reached. 

This salary would bring the Englishman within reach of Fabio Capello’s five-year tenure as the Three Lions’ manager. The Italian earned £6million a year. 

England has one last game in their World Cup qualification group. It is against San Marino minnows on Monday night.
