On Thursday afternoon, the legendary Man United great witnessed Harry Kane break his milestone for the most goals scored for Britain all-time.
Wayne Rooney has acknowledged that he predicted Harry Kane, after only four international appearances, would surpass his record for most goals scored for England. Rooney likened the target of Manchester United’s offense to Cristiano Ronaldo because of the man’s innate “selfishness” when it tends to come to put the ball in the back of the net for his nation.. Rooney made the comparison because of the Manchester United goal.
Kane surpassed Wayne Rooney as Britain’s all-time top goalscorer on Thursday afternoon when he converted a penalty kick in the 3 Lions’ 2-1 victory over Italy in Napoli. Rooney had previously held the record for most goals scored for England. The forward for Spurs had the same opportunity to accomplish this while competing in World Cup in Doha; however, he missed a critical penalty in the quarterfinal match against France, which resulted in his nation being ousted from the competition.
When England played Switzerland in 2015, a young Harry Kane was standing on the pitch when Wayne Rooney scored another penalty kick to move himself up to the top spot on the scoreboard, despite the fact that his former teammate on the England national team told him that he would eventually hand over the record to him, the Spurs talisman admitted on Thursday that he would eventually pass the record on to him.
Rooney noted in his article for The Telegraph on Friday, “I told Harry he was capable of doing so even though Prior to that time, Harry had earned only 3 goals for England.
Even back then, when he had only 4 England caps underneath his belt, I felt he had the potential to become England’s all-time leading scorer if he continued to play the way that was, and I was interested in providing him support.
Kane, who is only 29 years old and looks as quick close to the goal as he did when he was younger, has every opportunity to put a significant distance among himself and the other players. Rooney believes that the striker will achieve an astonishing 70 goals by the time he hangs up his cleats for the international team, and he compares comparison of the striker’s laser-like focus on the target to that of Ronaldo.
“Knowing Harry, it’s not something that will go to his head,” Rooney added. “It’s not something Rooney went on to say that, knowing Harry, it’s unlikely that it will cause him to become overconfident. It is my opinion that when he finally hangs up his cleats, he will have moved the record for England to a spot that makes it extremely challenging for another player to surpass it. He will continue to play, however.
