Kane headed home his first goal of the tournament late on in front of a raucous Wembley crowd to secure England’s first knockout victory at a European Championship in 25 years.
It was also their first knockout victory over the four-time world champions since lifting the World Cup on home soil in 1966.
“It’s an amazing day, an amazing game. To hear Wembley like this is a moment none of us will ever forget,” said Kane.
“A great performance, another clean sheet, just the perfect afternoon. We’ll enjoy this one but we know we’ve got another big one on Saturday now.”
Prince William and wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, were in the stands to cheer on Kane and Co, loving what they saw — especially noted football fan William.
England’s route back to Wembley for the semi-finals and final appears kind Ukraine to come in the quarter-finals in Rome on Saturday.
Win that and they will face Denmark or the Czech Republic in the last four. “It doesn’t get bigger than this. A knockout game against a big nation, at home, when all the pressure is on, and we delivered so we should be proud of that,” Kane added after leading his country to victory.
“The bottom line is we don’t want to stop here, we’ve got a vision of where we want to go as a team, as a group, as a coaching staff and it’s not done yet.
“We loved every second of it. Hopefully we’ll be back here for the semi-final and final.”
