England striker Harry Kane was credited with his fourth senior international goal on Monday evening, but it was swiftly taken off him by UEFA.
Tottenham Hotspur frontman Kane – leading his country’s attack for the second time in four days – combined with Adam Lallana to fire England 2-0 up against Lithuania after 35 minutes of play in Vilnius, doubling the lead that had been taken by a long-range Ross Barkley effort.
Kane celebrated like a man who had just scored his first goal in four games for club and country.
However, just before half time, it was confirmed that the his shot was in fact off target and therefore the goal was given to unfortunate goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis, whose head the ball had rebounded off after hitting the base of the post.
Watford stopper Arlauskis had been in fine form up until this point in the match, thwarting Kane with three excellent saves.
