Internationals - Kane on target in England's six-goal thriller against Germany
Mon 26 September 2022, 22:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane slotted home his 51st goal for England as the Three Lions looked set for a memorable comeback victory against Germany in the UEFA Nations League on Monday evening.
The skipper fired his side into a 3-2 lead with another masterful penalty on 83 minutes after they had trailed 2-0 with 67 minutes on the clock at Wembley. However, Kai Havertz burst the bubble four minutes later for a final 3-3 scoreline.
Earning his 75th cap, Harry was again joined in the starting line-up by Eric Dier, now up to 47 caps after starting both matches on his return to the squad.
Harry went close in an even first half, but it looked grim for Gareth Southgate's men when Ilkay Gundogan slotted home from the penalty spot following Harry Maguire's trip on Jamal Musiala seven minutes into the second half. Havertz curled home for 2-0 on 67 minutes but England responded with three goals in 12 minutes from Luke Shaw, Mason Mount and then Kane's unstoppable spot-kick. Unfortunately, Nick Pope then spilled Serge Gnabry’s shot and Havertz tapped home for 3-3.
Already relegated from UEFA Nations League League A, Group 3, England's next fixture will be their 2022 World Cup opener against Iran in Qatar on 21 November.
Elsewhere on Monday, Destiny Udogie played 45 minutes as Italy Under-21s drew 1-1 in a friendly against Japan while Jamie Donley and Alfie Dorrington featured as England Under-18s beat Belgium 2-0 in Spain. Donley started and set up the opener for Amario Cozier-Duberry in his 74-minute shift. Dorrington came off the bench on 77 minutes. Luca Gunter was an unused substitute.
