Harry Kane’s penalty against Colombia in the World Cup last-16 tie made him the first England player to score in six consecutive internationals since 1939.
Having been fouled by Carlos Sanchez, England’s skipper ― after a lengthy delay caused by Colombia’s protests to referee Mark Geiger ― duly kept his cool to break the deadlock from 12 yards.

It brought up the Tottenham star’s sixth goal of the tournament, and also saw him equal Tommy Lawton’s 79-year-old record.
Kane’s strike also sees the 24-year-old match Lionel Messi’s total record of World Cup goals, on his debut at the tournament. He is now leading the race for the Golden Boot in Russia and with a place in quarter-finals against Sweden booked, Kane will be looking to add more goals to his dream first World Cup.
