The Tottenham superstar scored his 54th goal for the Three Lions in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifier against the Azzurri, surpassing previous record-holder Wayne Rooney.

It's official: Harry Kane is the all-time top scorer for England, with the national team captain surpassing Premier League icon Wayne Rooney on Thursday.

The Spurs sensation equaled the former Manchester United attacker's record in the FIFA World Cup quarterfinal against France, netting from the spot to draw level. Unfortunately, he went on to miss a second-half penalty and was unable to make history in Qatar.

However, the Tottenham ace wasted no time in making amends. The Three Lions returned to action on Thursday, kicking off their UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with an interesting trip to Italy.

And Gareth Southgate's men broke the deadlock against the Azzurri after only 13 minutes, with the 29-year-old striker having a hand in the opener as his blocked shot was converted by goalscorer Declan Rice.

Come the 44th minute, Kane was gifted the golden opportunity to surpass Rooney's record. The visitors were awarded a penalty following a handball from Di Lorenzo in the box. Harry stepped up, and unlike in the game against France, the striker converted with no hesitation. Check it out in the clips below.

And just like that, the Tottenham ace netted his 54th goal for the Three Lions, a feat that took him eight years and 81 caps to achieve. Eighteen of those came from penalties but Kane will not lose any sleep over that.
