Kane scored twice for the Three Lions as they cruised to a 4-0 win on the small island, netting in the 53rd minute to break the deadlock and adding his second and England’s fourth in injury time.
Gareth Southgate’s men made hard work of the game until the Spurs stars opener and after that, the floodgates opened as the minnows of Malta tired.
Smith handed Kane a 9/10 in his player ratings for the game and said: “Forget about his goals and his assist tonight, his all-round play makes him so important to the England team.
“He has touch and awareness which is first-class and he is just one of the best centre-forwards in the world now.”
Kane had gone goalless throughout August as that odd run of his in that month continued but on the first day of September, the striker bagged a brace as he targets another 30+ goals season.
