Thankfully, it’ll be the first day of September when England face Malta in a World Cup qualifier on Friday and boss Gareth Southgate will be hoping a new month brings better luck for Kane.
The Tottenham striker has not scored in August for three seasons running — but has gone on to be the Premier League Golden Boot winner in the past two years.
Kane twice struck the woodwork in Spurs’ opening three games and missed other chances, yet insists he is not worried.
Rather than watch himself analysed on Match Of The Day when he drew another blank in the home draw with Burnley on Sunday, he changed channels.
“I didn’t watch it, I was watching the golf,” said Kane.
“It is what it is. Obviously, for some reason the ball doesn’t seem to go in in August. Who knows why?
“The Malta game is on September 1, so we’ve all had a little joke about it. I should be good to go now. But people know I won’t be too worried about it.
“I’ve had two very good seasons without scoring in August before, so I just need to keep my head down and work hard because I know the goals will come. I’ve hit the post twice this season, so I’m getting in the right positions.
“I’m feeling good and sharp, so I’m not too worried. I’ll have spells like this, but it just seems to be at this time of the year, no matter what shape I’m in.
“I just have to stay mentally focused and do my job – try to score for England in these next two games and go from there.”
Kane will also be relieved England have to travel to Malta rather than host them at Wembley, which has been an unhappy hunting ground for Spurs so far this campaign.
They have a year-long lease on the national stadium while their new ground next to White Hart Lane is being finished and have lost to Chelsea and been held by Burnley, extending a run of bad form there going back years.
England do host Slovakia — who they beat 1-0 last September — there on Monday, but Kane insists the Wembley hoodoo, like his goal drought, is not a concern.
He said: “It’s over-played. I think we’ve played very well there, but for one reason or another, it hasn’t gone our way yet.
“We’re not panicking, we know there’s a long way to go. We just have to continue working hard and I am sure things will turn around.
“For me personally, obviously I haven’t scored in August yet, so there is still room for improvement. But I feel like I’m in a good place physically at the moment.”
Former England striker Alan Shearer has come out in support of Kane.
“That’s the life of being a striker,” said the 24-year-old.
“You will go through spells when you miss chances, you go through spells and you get deflections that go in and everything you touch turns to gold.
“As a striker, you’ve got to stay focused to work hard for the team first and foremost, then I’m sure the goals will come.”
