Recently, Gareth Southgate striker Harry Kane has come a little closer to Wayne Rooney, who still holds the title of top scorer in England’s history with 53 goals. This happened in the March match against Switzerland, and the Englishman reached the mark of 49 effective shots.
England head coach Gareth Southgate has no doubt that Kane will be able to overtake Rooney, and moreover – the manager is confident that this will happen soon. “I don’t think Harry will worry about which stadium he plays in when it comes to breaking the record. But it would be very unfortunate if it happened at an empty stadium.
I don’t have to think about whether to include Kane in the starting lineup when he can physically play. All players are also in the part of the season when they come to us after a lot of games, play more, and then return to the clubs for no less important matches. He may not play a full match because we need to look at everyone we have involved in this training camp,” said the English head coach.
It will be recalled that England will play against Hungary in Budapest on June 4 in empty stands due to the behaviour of local fans at Euro 2020. Against Italy, Wembley also will be empty on June 7 as the British will not be able to count on their own fans due to violations of their rules during the final game of Euro 2020, which the Three Lions lost to Gli Azzurri.
