Harry Kane is a lethal striker.

After 25 Premier League goals this season, the striker knows exactly where the back of the net. Whether it’s the white of Spurs or the white of England, the 22-year-old can finish.

He showed his abilities after just two minutes in England’s friendly against Turkey.

Dele Alli slipped the ball through to him and, although he was offside, Kane calm stuck the ball away with aplomb.

Replays showed he was a yard or two offside, but the crowd inside Manchester City's Etihad Stadium didn't care. Watch the goal below:

It was Kane’s 32nd goal for club and country this season - a stat that has seen him become favourite to lead the line for Roy Hodgson's side this summer.

But his strike didn't see England last for too long. Turkey levelled proceedings after 14 minutes when Hakan Calhanoglu capitalised on sloppy defending to equalise.

But whether Kane has a strike partner remains to be seen. Jamie Vardy started the match against Turkey alongside him but Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Marcus Rashford are all vying for a spot.

But there’s something that Kane needs to work on and that’s free-kicks.

During the first-half, Kane stepped over a deal-ball about 25-yards out and attempted a Cristiano Ronaldo style attempt.

But he failed horrible with the ball sailing miles wide.

Despite already putting the Three Lions into the lead, Kane was trolled epically on Twitter for his awful attempt. Take a look at some of the best tweets:

And so on...

During the European Championships, it’s likely that captain Wayne Rooney will take over free-kick duty - something that England fans will be very pleased about judging by the above comments.
