The 29-year-old became his country's greatest ever goalscorer when he broke Wayne Rooney's record of 53 with a penalty against Italy last week and followed it up with a 55th in Sunday's win over Ukraine. Harry Kane, who has won 82 caps, says he intends to play for his country for as long as possible, so reaching a century is not out of the question. "Getting 100 will be tough for sure, but I never count out anything," he told Planet Sport. Kane set up his foundation towards the end of 2022 with the goal of helping children with transforming a generation's thinking about mental health.
Three days later England comfortably beat Ukraine 2-0 at Wembley, meaning they took maximum points from the hardest double-header in a group completed by North Macedonia and Malta. The Euro 2020 runners-up will be expected to record another six-point haul when they face the latter nations in the summer, but Southgate will not allow complacency to seep in. "I would expect everyone would want to be here and want to be a part of it," the England boss said of June's Group G games away in Malta and against North Macedonia at Old Trafford.
Bellingham enjoyed another fine international break where he was once again one of the standout players as England beat Italy and Ukraine to take control of their Euro 2024 qualification group. The 19-year-old has also starred for Borussia Dortmund again this season, with his performances helping Edin Terzic's side to the top of the Bundesliga. Bellingham already has 24 England caps and scored his first goal in the World Cup win over Iran, with Henderson suitably impressed by what he has seen at close quarters.
