Tottenham star Kane wants more England goals after surpassing Shearer

Harry Kane wants more goals for his country after overtaking Alan Shearer on England's all-time scorers list.

A hat-trick for the Tottenham Hotspur star in Thursday's 7-0 win over Montenegro has taken his tally to 31, surpassing Newcastle United icon Shearer.

Kane said: "We all know how impressive Shearer was at scoring goals. A milestone to hit and hopefully a few more to come.

"We have had one slip up in the group and responded really well. Got the job done and wanted to put on a show in our 1000th game and with five goals in the first half I think we did that.

"We want to win that game away from home (against Kosovo). We will enjoy this with one eye on Sunday."
