‘It’s never easy coming’ Kane happy to end England goal drought

Mon 29 March 2021 | 9:08

The Spurs striker scored against Albania to end his 500-day goal drought with the Three Lions.

England defeated Albania with a 2-0 result in their World Cup qualifying match on Sunday.

Harry Kane

broke the deadlock with a header in the 38th minute and ended his 500-day international goal drought. The 27-year-old also provided an assist for

Mason Mount

in the 63rd minute that secured the victory for

Gareth Southgate

’s side. In a post-match interview, Kane spoke about his 33rd international goal.

"I think I’ve always said as a striker, sometimes you go through spells where everything you touch goes in, and when it just doesn’t quite go your way,"

Kane told the

FA's website

.

"I think I had a few off the line in that spell, an offside goal that I don’t think was offside, but that’s part of being a striker. You’ve just got to stay focused on doing your job for the team, and thankfully we did that as a team – it was great to get the three points.”

England defeated San Marino with a 5-0 result last week. With their victory against Albania, the Three Lions have now won both of their World Cup qualifiers in Group I.

"It’s never easy coming away from home against a tough side. Maybe we were a little bit slow to start. We changed our formation halfway through the first half and I think that definitely helped. We got more runners in the box and more attacking players.

"I thought we controlled the second half well; they didn’t create too many chances. Overall, it was a good night."

England will play their next World Cup qualifying match against

Poland

on Wednesday.
