Harry Kane eyeing up 50-yard goal of his own for England against Scotland – and watch how it did it before for Tottenham

HARRY KANE has warned Scotland he is eyeing up a 50-yard goal of his own, after watching England’s rivals being floored by Patrik Schick’s wonder strike.

Scottish keeper David Marshall was embarrassed by Schick’s effort from the halfway line in Monday’s 2-0 defeat by the Czech Republic.

And before Friday’s Euros clash with the Scots at Wembley, England skipper Kane admits he is looking to perform a similar trick - again.

The Tottenham skipper scored a similar goal back in July 2019 in a pre-season friendly against Juvdntus, beating Wojciech Szczesny from a similar distance to secure a dramatic 3-2 injury time win.

Of the Shick goal, he told ITV: “It was unbelievable - to see the keeper off the line is one thing but then to be able to put it in the back of the net is another. It was probably the goal of the tournament - that will be a hard one to beat.

“But every now and then I will look for that one. The keepers today like to play as sweepers waiting for that ball in between, so if there is a ricochet or an opening I like to try and look for that one.

“You never know we might get another one in this tournament.

“I thought Scotland played quite well, they had a few chances, the Czech keeper made some great saves and obviously they scored one from 50 yards which changed the game.

“Scotland were good, obviously we will be assessing that game and looking at the things we can exploit. All in all, we are ready for a tough game.”

Kane says England will look back to Paul Gascoigne’s classic Euro 96 goal against the Scots for inspiration.

He said: “That was such a good game in the history of English football, Gazza’s goal was one of the greatest goals an Englishman has ever scored in a major competition.

“There are nice memories to take from that but we just need to focus on this one. We are expecting a tough game against a good side.”

Kane, who suffered a frustrating match in England's opening 1-0 win over Croatia, says he does not consider himself undroppable despite having the England armband.

He said: “I never look at it that way. We have great competition for places. Dominic (Calvert-Lewin) has come in and done great. For me it is about how I train every day and try and improve and when I play, to try and give my best for the team.

“I am sure there will be rotation among all the players in this tournament and everyone is waiting for the chance to try and make an impact.”
