And Harry Kane will be chasing the record England top scorer.

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

“I was lucky enough to play on the court and actually score when Wayne broke the record himself. I saw how much it meant to him and his family. I didn’t even think that far back then.

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

“Whenever you’re under the names of Rooney and Lineker and Charlton and players like that, you’re doing something worthwhile.

“It seems a long time since I made my debut. Back then it was just about playing for England – that was and still is one of the best feelings when I put on this shirt.”
