Harry Kane is overjoyed with his team's 2:1 win. With two goals, the Englishman became England's top scorer (54 goals). His team showed their quality in the match against Italy in the right way. “It means everything,” Kane told Channel 4, as quoted by eurosport.com “We were so excited to put the England shirt back on and get back out here.
It had to be a penalty of course and once it hit the back of the net, so much emotion.
Just huge thanks to all the players, all the staff, the fans, my wife and family – everyone who helped me get to this stage, just a magical moment.
I just do what I do.
I practice, work hard. Picked my spot and put it away. Just a great night. We haven’t won in Italy for so long. To score and win this game is special”.
Wayne Rooney and his record
Previously, the record was held by Wayne Rooney, when he broke Bobby Charlton's record in 2015.
“I was on the pitch when Wayne broke the record and I know what it meant to him,” said Kane. “I remember when I presented him the boot for the record, he said ‘I would be giving this back to you one day’.
Just a special guy, a great England legend, so to hear that [his congratulations] is fantastic”.
Kane is happy with his team's performance and believes that they have a good chance of qualifying for the EURO. It will be an ideal opportunity to fix things from a few years ago. "The World Cup was a difficult way to end and it was tough to finish that way,” he added.
"We spoke this week, getting back to it. We are one of the best teams in Europe, we have to keep just knocking on the door.
To put in a performance like that today shows we are just ready for the next challenge. We have a difficult campaign ahead but hopefully we can get ready for next year."
