Bayern Munich striker, Harry Kane, continued to make strides with his individual records despite a disappointing performance by England on Thursday, June 20.

The striker was on target for his side as the Three Lions put up another drab performance at the Euro 2024 in Germany.

Kane opened the scoring for England with his first goal of the tournament, slotting home from a few yards out after Kyle Walker created a chance for his team from nowhere.

The Three Lions, who were under pressure to improve after a narrow 1-0 win over Serbia in their group opener four days earlier, failed to hold on to their lead until half-time as Denmark’s Morten Hjulmand equalised in sensational style with a strike from at least 25 yards out.

Gareth Southgate went against his norm in the second half, making four substitutions with 20 minutes left.

Still, it was not enough to see his team claim a win as England were made to wait in their quest to advance to the knockout stages of the competition.

Harry Kane’s milestones

For Kane, his England stint paints a similar picture to the season he had at Bayern Munich.

Despite winning the European Golden Boot and emerging as the top scorer in the Bundesliga, he ended the 2024/25 season without silverware as his wait for a maiden career trophy persisted.

Against Denmark, the 31-year-old scored to become just the third player to score for England at four different major tournaments, joining Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen, according to Opta.

In addition, his strike in the first half meant he has amassed 13 goals at major international tournaments for the Three Lions - more than any other player.

What next for England?

With one foot in the knockout stages, England will try to appease its fans in their final group game against Slovenia on Tuesday, June 25, per the BBC.

Harry Kane fumes at Phil Foden

Sports Brief also reported on Harry Kane’s reaction to Phil Foden after the Manchester City star went for goal instead of passing the ball to him.

The City star was having a decent game in England colours after Southgate deployed him in his more natural position of just behind the striker.

However, Foden had a moment to forget late in the first half vs. Denmark as he failed to feed a crucial ball to Kane when the attack was on.
