Harry Kane boasts second-most goals in ALL 2022 World Cup qualifiers across globe with Liverpool outcast Minamino sixth

HARRY KANE smashed seven goals in two games to become the second-highest scorer in ALL qualifiers for next year’s World Cup.

The England skipper ended his country’s qualifying campaign with an impressive 12 goals against Group I opponents.

That total included the four he notched against San Marino and the perfect hat-trick he banged in against Albania last week.

His efforts helped England to score the second-highest number of goals in international football this year.

Other famous faces on the individual list include Liverpool’s out-of-favour Takumi Minamino, Barcelona star Memphis Depay and Bayern Munich talisman Robert Lewandowksi.

Minamino is one of two Japan internationals who notched nine goals during qualifying, with Vissel Kobe’s Yuya Osako being the other.

But his efforts on the world stage appear to have done little to convince Reds boss Jurgen Klopp that he deserves to start at Anfield.

Depay has found the back of the net 11 times for Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands but domestically is part of a struggling Barcelona side desperate for goals.

Lewandowski hit eight for Poland as he became the first player since Cristiano Ronaldo in 2014 to score 60 goals in a calendar year.

The Bayern goal-machine has been tipped by some to lift the Ballon d’Or this year for the first time in his career.

But none of these stellar names can match the total set by United Arab Emirates’ Ali Mabkhout.

The Al Jazira striker chalked up 13 goals in the UAE’s campaign, including a hat-trick against Indonesia back in October 2019.
