Wed 11 September 2019, 06:02|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane bagged goal number 26 for England as the Three Lions won an entertaining Euro 2020 qualifier 5-3 against Kosovo at St Mary's on Tuesday night.
The skipper rattled home England's second goal after Kosovo took a shock lead inside a minute. Gareth Southgate's men responded in style to lead 5-1 at the break with goals from Jadon Sancho (2), Raheem Sterling and an own goal.
It was far from over though as the visitors responded twice to make it 5-3 at the start of the second half. England had further chances on the break and there was the rarity of Harry having a penalty saved as it stayed 5-3.
That made it four wins out of four for the Three Lions at the top of Group A. Danny Rose and Harry Winks remained on the bench.
Elsewhere in Euro 2020 qualifying, Moussa Sissoko was back in France's starting line-up for cap number 59 alongside captain Hugo Lloris (114 caps) as Les Bleus beat Andorra 3-0 at the Stade de France. France are level with Turkey at the top of Group H and will be buoyed further by third-placed Iceland's defeat against Albania.
Heung-Min Son captained South Korea to a positive start in the second round of 2022 World Cup qualifying in Asia with a 2-0 away win against Turkmenistan in Ashgabat.
Serge Aurier earned his 58th cap and captained the Ivory Coast to a 2-1 friendly victory over Tunisia.
In Under-21 qualifying action, young Academy striker Troy Parrott, 17, came off the bench to help the Republic of Ireland come from 1-0 down to beat Sweden 3-1 in Kalmar. Troy scored twice, the first a shot rifled into the roof of the net for the equaliser, the second and the clincher, a delicate chip in added time. ROI top Group One.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Davinson Sanchez started and played 56 minutes for Colombia in their goalless friendly draw with Venezuela in Florida.
