Harry Kane admits he could look to emulate Patrick Schick’s wondergoal when England face Scotland in their Euro 2020 Group D clash on Friday evening.
Scotland’s campaign got off to a disappointing start following a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic on Monday, with Bayer Leverkusen forward Shick scoring twice, including a stunning effort from almost 50 yards that flew over goalkeeper David Marshall.
The 25-year-old’s exquisite lobbed effort caught out Marshall who had ventured off his goal-line, and Kane admits it is a finish he could look to replicate if the opportunity presents itself in this week’s crucial clash at Wembley.
“Unbelievable,” he told ITV. “To see the keeper off the line is one thing but then to be able to put it in the back of the net is another.

“The keepers today like to play as sweepers so if there is an opening I like to try and look for that one.
“You never know, we might get another one this tournament.”
Kane produced a disappointing performance despite England beginning their campaign with a 1-0 win over Croatia on Sunday, and the Three Lions’ captain admits the strong competition for places means he does not consider himself a guaranteed starter at Euro 2020.
“You will have to ask Gareth but I never look at it that way,” Kane said. “We have great competition for places. Dominic has come in and done great.
“For me it is about how I train every day and when I play, try and give my best for the team. I think that is what everyone is doing at the moment and I am sure there will be rotation among all the players in this tournament.
“Everyone is waiting for the chance to try and make an impact.”
