Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp has likened Harry Kane to England legend Bobby Moore – hailing the striker is a ‘perfect captain and role model’.
Kane has been in imperious form at this World Cup scoring two penalties as the Three Lions beat Colombia in a tense shoot-out to seal their place in the quarter-finals.
Kane is impressing more and more every time he steps onto the field for his country – not only showing nerves of steel from the spot but also keeping a cool head against a Colombia side that tried every trick in the book to stop England in their tracks.
He leads the golden boot race in Russia with an impressive six goals from six shots on target in Russia and he has also scored in all eight matches he has played as Three Lions captain (12 goals) and his penalty against Colombia made him the first player since Tommy Lawton in 1939 to score in six consecutive England matches.
And former Liverpool, Tottenham and England midfielder Redknapp says the ‘gentleman’ striker have proven himself as a true leader in a Three Lions shirt.
Speaking to talkSPORT Redknapp said: “What can I add on Harry Kane? He’s phenomenal.He is the perfect captain.
“You talk about the great captains have had in the past – THE great captain was Bobby Moore.My dad used to room with him at West Ham. He was top man, the maestro, he was another level to everybody else.
Redknapp added:”I think Harry Kane just sets such a great example.I watched the game last night with my kids and he’s such a gentleman with the way he conducts himself on and off the field.He is a credit to the game and he deserves all the success he is getting at the moment.”
