England scored more goals in 2019 than they have in over 100 years and their captain Harry Kane set some individual marks as the Three Lions swept aside Kosovo in their final match of the year.

England’s final goal in a 4-0 drubbing of the Balkans, scored by Mason Mount, was their 38th in the last 12 months, their most since 1908, according to Opta.

Mount, on as a substitute for the impressive Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, became the youngest Chelsea player to score for England since Jimmy Greaves in 1960 at 20 years and 311 days old.

Harry Winks scored the first on the night, and the first of his England career, after 32 minutes and England maintained their slender lead against spirited foes until deep in the second period when Kane doubled their advantage.

Marcus Rashford scored their third soon after, before Mount’s goal put the icing on the cake.

Kane’s Tottenham side have endured a difficult start to the season, and he has not been immune from criticism when playing for his club.

When he has put on the Three Lions shirt, the 26-year-old has been dominant since taking home the Golden Boot from last summer’s World Cup in Russia.

He has scored in each of England’s Euro 2020 qualification matches, and in each of his last six games for his country, equaling his own post-war mark for consecutive matches with a goal. He did so between October 2017 and July 2018.

'Ruthless' Kane will break Rooney's England goals record - Southgate

  'Ruthless' Kane will break Rooney's England goals record - Southgate The Tottenham forward is still 23 goals behind the all-time record, but his international boss thinks he is more than up to the task of breaking itGareth Southgate is backing Harry Kane to break the England goals record after the captain's hat-trick against Montenegro moved him to sixth on the all-time list.

In cricket, a player is said to have completed a century when he scores 100 or more runs in a single innings. The Cricket World Cup is the international championship of One Day International (ODI) cricket.

This list is a compilation of total centuries scored by international cricketers, split between different formats of the game. A qualification of 15 overall centuries is used for entry onto the men's list.

Kane’s goal was his 12th of 2019; nobody has ever netted more in a year while representing England.

Only twice before has a played scored a dozen in 12 months, most recently Dixie Dean in 1927.

Before the Everton legend’s feat the last man to do so was George Hildon in 1908, the year in which England notched their record tally as a team.

Kane now has 32 goals in 45 caps, the sixth-most in history for an England player, and no player has ever scored more while wearing the armband.

Nine more strikes will see him supplant Michael Owen’s tally of 40, and move the Spurs man into the top five.

England will be one of the top six seeds next summer as they look to fix the heartbreak of semi-final exits at the World Cup and this year's Nations League finals.
