England top scorer: How many goals does Harry Kane need to beat Wayne Rooney and become all-time leader?

ENGLAND are in Nations League action this week with some glamour matches.

Hungary, Germany and Italy await as Gareth Southgate's Three Lions prepare for the Qatar World Cup.

And Harry Kane will be hunting down the England top scorers record.

The Tottenham ace – who scored his first England goal in 2015 against Lithuania – said: “Of course I think it would be an incredible achievement to break the record.

“I was lucky enough to be playing on the pitch and actually scored when Wayne broke the record himself. I saw how much it meant to him and his family. I did not really think that far ahead at that stage.

“But to be where I am now – four goals behind Wayne with plenty of games coming up this year- is an incredible achievement.

“Whenever you are in amongst the names of Rooney and Lineker and Charlton and players like that you are doing something worthwhile.

“It seems like a long time ago when I made my debut. At the time it was just about playing for England – that was one of the best feelings and still is one of the best feelings every time I pull on that shirt."
