Scotland v England: Harry Kane picks ideal time to end England barren run after Golden Boot success with Spurs
Despite being prolific at club level, the Tottenham striker had gone over a year without a goal for his country before snatching a point off Scotland
Harry Kane ended a 575-minute run without a goal for England as he snatched a point in a 2-2 draw with Scotland.
The Tottenham striker has been prolific at club level since making the breakthrough at White Hart Lane.
Ox ends 607-day wait for a goal
He has collected back-to-back Golden Boots in the Premier League, with a 29-goal haul in 2016-17 seeing him net at a rate of one every 87.28 minutes.
Kane had, however, endured a barren run with his country which stretched back to before Euro 2016.

He now has six efforts for his country, having come to the Three Lions’ rescue against Scotland.
Hart refuses to rule out Man Utd move
Despite taking the lead in a 2018 World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park, Gareth Southgate’s side fell behind to a quick-fire free-kick brace from Leigh Griffiths.
Kane has shown himself to be a deadly finisher down the years, though, and all he needed was one sight of goal in stoppage-time to ensure that the game ended all square.
