Harry Kane will look to continue his staggering run of goalscoring when he leads the line for England in a crucial World Cup qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley on Thursday.

The 24-year-old, who scored 13 goals in nine appearances for club and country in September after a dry August, netted twice for the Three Lions in Malta in the last international break.

And with England needing to beat Slovenia to guarantee a place at Russia 2018, dabblebet has enhanced Kane's first goalscorer price up to a whopping 5/2 (3.50), from 11/5 (3.20), for Thursday's game.

Kane has only managed three goals in Group F so far - largely due to injury - but the signs are positive that he is getting to grips with international defences after struggling at Euro 2016.

The Spurs striker has been clear about his ambition to captain England on a permanent basis and he can stake a claim for the armband by hitting the net yet again when Slovenia visit Wembley.

With six Premier League goals this season, Kane looks like scoring every time the ball comes to him right now and an enhanced price of 5/2 (3.50) from dabblebet for the striker to notch the first goal of the game is a joint industry-leading price.

The pressure is mostly off England, given they are five points clear at the top of the group, and they should continue their fine form in home qualifiers, where they have a 100 per cent record in the current campaign.

Just one goal has been conceded by the Three Lions at Wembley in those four games, but Slovenia - who held England to a 0-0 draw at home - will carry a threat as they simply have to win the game to have any hope of qualification.

England to win the game with both teams to score is therefore also an angle to explore here, with this result occuring in three of the five previous meetings between the two sides.

Enhanced odds of 11/4 (3.75) from dabblebet on England/BTTS, boosted from 5/2 (3.50), is the joint-best price in the business right now and the bet has a great chance of landing at Wembley on Thursday night.
