An England Stroll With A First Harry Kane Goal


England cantered to a 4-0 win at Wembley against Lithuania tonight  in their 5th group game in qualifying for Euro 2016,  and there were first goals for their country from both Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane, who made his debut for England in the second half.

Wayne Rooney hit the post after only 4 minutes and Rooney then scored after 6 minutes to put England 1-0 up and it was his 47th England goal.

And Wayne’s now just two goals behind Sir Bobby Charlton’s England record of 49 goals and one behind Gary Linekar’s 48.

And just before half time it was Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck who put England 2-0 up with a header,  and that’s Danny’s 14th England goal after only 33 appearances.

After 58 minutes Sterling put the ball in the back of the net for his first England goal after 13 appearances, and it was more good work and an excellent cross from Wayne Rooney out on the right wing that made it easy for the Liverpool forward.

Wayne makes then as well as scores them for England.

After 71 minutes Harry Kane came on for captain Wayne Rooney for his England debut, and it took him just 79 seconds to score his first England goal, with a good header.

The win puts England on a maximum 15 points after 5 games played, and we are 6 points ahead of second placed Slovenia in Group E, and it’s hard to see England not qualifying for the finals in France next year.

But England have been great in qualifying before and flopped in the finals of most major tournaments.

Maybe 2016,  with top players like Wayne Rooney, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson, Harry  Kane and Joe Hart, England can do very well.

Let’s hope so – we’ve been waiting an awful long time for another England success since 1966.

    Ah, well. No achievement since, I dunno, 1929 or something? I’ll enjoy the next EL or CL qualification. Or – got to admit I miss this – a domestic cup final.

    What do you think works well with the way things are under the current incumbent? More importantly what progress has been made in 7 years?

    I think I’m the only one in the UK who’s not getting carried away by Kane, it’s great to see an English striker who’s in red hot form but I just can’t help find the nation getting carried away. It’s his 1st full season with Spurs, if he’s doing it year after year I’d be excited.

    As per usual so much hype over someone who’s performed very well over 5 months. Kane is currently being used as an example for why young lads should get a chance and listening to the radio you’d think he’s been doing it for years. Now Dyke and everyone wants to change rules based and using Kane as an example. I remember a Michael Ricketts of Bolton having an outstanding season and scoring for England on debut. Not saying Kane will go that way but we need to be grounded with youngsters, perfect example at our club is Aarons, hardly kicked a ball yet a saviour to quite a few

    BDG,
    You say you have to admit you miss a domestic cup final in a way that somebody who helped enforce prohibition might miss a glass of Whiskey, like reaching a cup final would be some kind of guilty pleasure. God forbid it ever happens.

    Our Toon,
    Don’t fall in to the what progress trap, we’re now financially stable and in a great position to launch an assault on Europe, and the debt isn’t really debt, it’s only owed to good old Mikey and luckily once he’s got all his money back and many times more he’d never dream of watching us sink.

    Ahaha…..i think most logically sound minded individuals would acknowledge that there hasn’t been any progress. Debt doubled, constantly flip flopping every season and penny pinching.

    I could go on, I just don’t get “supporters” like BDG. If they look at nufc and see ambition I’d hate to see what they see as success or ambition in there private lives and working lives!!

    Our Toon,
    ‘$upporters’ like BDG think the league cup is winning the title and we last done it in 1929. What chance have you got.

    I found this

    It is about a Peruvian 1st division club Melgar in Arequipa and the writer is bemoaning the locals preferring to support bigger clubs in the leagues

    http://blogs.gestion.pe/hoysiatiendoprovincias/2015/03/equipo-centenario-y-su-rentabilidad.html

    As part of his musings he mentions the club that a local lad , a certain Norberto Solano , went to play for, and holds us up as a shining example.

    This what he says

    “NUFC is the typical case of successful club backed by fans and not by the results. Not won a first division title since 1927 (the last tournament win was the cup in 1955) never won and practically does not participate in the Champions League or the Europa League.

    Its success is from having a strong relationship with their city and their fans, with an average gate of 50,688 per match, it far exceeds big teams like Juventus, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid and most successful teams in its own league as Liverpool or Chelsea .”

    Nicer than constantly calling them sheep I think.

    Jeff…do you feel unappreciated?

    …do you think it’s uncalled for when part of the fan-base question the solidarity of those who are just thinking about getting better seats!

    Pick yourself up for Christ sake and grow some…

    Wonderful quote and inescapably sad of course.

    Your starting point for achievement for NUFC is a league title? And you think I am “taking the pi$$”? What level of spending would enable that?

    Misread you “winning the league…” Apologies (for that error) – yes, any cup will do, and that should be possible, but since we’ve never won it it’s hard to put the blame on Ashley, and since I’ve never owned or managed the club, harder still to pin any particle of blame on me.

    BDG,
    My starting point was a league cup, formerly known as the Milk cup etc and that might take not millions but taking it seriously as one of two realistic chances of silverware.
    2nd,
    I am of course not blaming you for our cup demise, but you fully support an ownership that wants nothingbto do with any kind of cup success.

    BDG,
    I am not blaming Mike Ashley for not winning it I am accusing him of not wanting or not bothered about winning anything other than profit margins with us which is not all football is about.

    It’s the almost perfect excuse for the remaining apologists, we haven’t won anything for so long, how can you blame Ashley, he knew this from the beginning and there is a big difference between wanting to win something and to deliberately avoid trying.
