Harry Kane becomes England’s joint-top scorer alongside Wayne Rooney as he fires a penalty past Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris to equalize in the World Cup quarter-final against France


Harry Kane became England’s joint-top scorer alongside Wayne Rooney after equalizing against France in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

The 29-year-old fired his penalty into the top left corner past Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris to net 53 goals for the Three Lions.

After being denied a penalty in the first half, Kane had the chance to pull England level in the 54th minute.

Bukayo Saka beat Aurélien Tchouameni, who broke the deadlock for the Blues, before bringing down the Arsenal winger.

And Kane got it right, sending Lloris the wrong way in what is his second Qatar goal.

Kane has scored 53 goals in 80 games, 35 games less than Manchester United legend Rooney.

And it was no less than what England deserved to have been in control since Aurelien’s marvelous strike in the 17th minute.

England legend Stuart Pearce was lyrical at Kane’s kick as he urged Gareth Southgate’s side to continue their relentless onslaught on goal.

Commenting on his brilliant kick in the talkSPORT comments, he said: “Fantastic punishment from the captain, beautiful.

“If you want to know what to do now, watch the Dutch yesterday.

“They leveled up and took their foot off the accelerator.

“England must keep turning the screw.”

As well as his two goals, he also contributed three assists – the most joint with Bruno Fernandes.
