Watch Harry Kane chip the goalkeeper to score for England

New, comments

Right, we needed that.

Your boy Harry Kane has his second goal for the England national team, and it was a beauty. He hasn't scored yet for Tottenham Hotspur this season, but perhaps this is exactly what he needed to get back on track.

Yes, this is against San Marino, but shhhhhh. It's still a gorgeous goal by a key Spurs player who was in need of a goal after a slow start to the season. This made it 5-0 in a match against the worst team in Europe.

Kane didn't get the start -- Wayne Rooney did, and equalled Bobby Charlton's England scoring record from the penalty spot -- but at least he got an opportunity as a sub. Kane should probably be playing up top with Rooney in the hole behind him, but that will never happen because the only manager who's ever understood the point of Rooney and what he's good at is Alex Ferguson.

In any event, good for Harry! Hopefully this snaps him back into form.
