Tottenham striker Harry Kane has had his fair share of plaudits over the years. It is no exaggeration at all to say that the England captain is one of the best strikers in world football.
The 26-year-old has managed to consistently find the back of the net for club and country for the last five years and it has come to the point where his goal-scoring exploits are almost taken for granted.
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is in no doubt that the Spurs striker is the best in the world.
Abraham, who has been called up to the England squad for the Euro qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, revealed how much he is looking forward to linking up with Kane for the Three Lions.
Speaking about the Spurs man, Abraham told the Evening Standard, “For me, he’s the greatest striker in the world. I would put him up there. I was talking to [Chelsea and England midfielder] Ross Barkley the other day and said I’ve never seen a finisher like him.
“Ross was saying him, Jermain Defoe, and all sorts. But when you look at Harry Kane, if he gets a chance in the box, nine times out of 10, it’s a goal. So I’ll go there learn off him and hopefully be like him.
“It would be amazing to play with him but even to train with him alone, getting to see him in training and all sorts – nick a few bits of his game and add them to mine.
“It isn’t really a battle. The one thing I love about the England team is that we are all a big family. They all play for each other, the team, the nation.”
It is unlikely that the pair will get the opportunity to feature alongside one another for England with Gareth Southgate preferring to play with a front 3 employing only one central striker.
Spurs Web Opinion
While Abraham rightly raves about Kane’s finishing, I believe the England captain’s all round play still doesn’t get the credit that it deserves. His passing and vision are as good as top midfielders which means he can drop deep and find the runs of Raheem Sterling and Marcos Rashford.
