2022 FIFA World Cup Player Spotlight: Gareth Bale

England’s talisman

Harry Kane wrote his name in the World Cup history books after scoring six goals in Russia 2018. He joins the top goalscorer talks as a +600 favorite to win the title, ahead of Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and Kylian Mbappe of France. His previous achievement on the international stage puts him with the likes of Ronaldo, Eusebio, and Gerd Muller. This assures him of a place as an Egland Legend as no one in the history of the nation’s national team has scored more often in competitive games.

In 73 games he played with the England men’s soccer team, Kane managed to score 50 times. His overall record stands in comparison with anyone in modern-day soccer records. The Tottenham striker holds multiple England records that feature most competitive goals (43), most goals at major tournaments (10), and most goals in a calendar year (12).

Traditional playing style

Many recognize Kane’s playing style as reminiscent of old-fashioned forwards. He is a goalscoring machine. As a tall and physical striker, he can manhandle defenses and create close scoring opportunities. Although Kane was initially criticized for his weak aerial game in his early days and lack of significant pace, he became more productive around that area as his career progressed.

The England captain has that natural ability to score. He’s young and fresh, with a commendable attitude as his nation’s leader. Furthermore, the 29-year-old is willing to run in behind defenders and go short, opening more chances along the way. He can pull off fast snapshots, which is good to see against teams that apply pressure quickly.

Potential World Cup legend

Our 2022 FIFA World Cup Player Spotlight: Harry Kane is incomplete without recognizing his proximity to Rooney’s record. He could secure record-breaking numbers and bring England its first major global title in 56 years. The team captain would make the transition from legend to World Cup immortal in a perfect world. There are several challenges along the way, but as -333 favorites to win Group B and +300 favorites to reach the final, it’s a confidence booster knowing the striker is surrounded by capable teammates.
