“Form is always temporary,” Gareth Southgate said after Harry Kane’s hat-trick against Albania at Wembley put England closer to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
Kane was withdrawn in the dismal 1-1 draw with Hungary last month, but he was back to his best in the 5-0 thumping of Albania. The striker now has 44 goals in 66 appearances, nine fewer than Wayne Rooney’s record of 53, and Southgate may start him against San Marino on Monday to ensure England’s position in Qatar.
“Form is always temporary,” Southgate said. “What pleased me most was his all-round performance. We know he’s going to score goals. I liked the way he was aggressive in his hold-up play and running in behind. His link play was on song.
