When asked to pick just one word, Jack Grealish has described his England teammate, Harry Kane, as unbelievable.

Kane has been extremely consistent for both club and country for the best part of the last decade and the striker is on the cusp of making history, currently just two goals short of Wayne Rooney’s all-time goals record for the Three Lions.

The 29-year-old went into the World Cup in fine form, having found the back of the net 12 times in 15 Premier League games in the first part of the campaign (Transfermarkt) but he is yet to open his account in front of goal in Qatar.

Gareth Southgate will be hoping that the England captain is back among the goals against Wales, with the Three Lions needing a result against Robert Page’s men to seal qualification to the knockout stages.

While Kane arguably might not get the respect he deserves from some England fans, his international teammates certainly seem to appreciate the striker.

A couple of days ago, Phil Foden declared that the Spurs star was the best finisher he has ever seen (SportBible), which is high praise considering he plays alongside Erling Haaland at Manchester City.

Grealish has become the latest England player to sign Kane’s praises as part of a Word Association game that the 27-year-old was involved in. When asked to describe Kane in one word on Deliveroo’s social media channel, the City star responded: “Unbelievable”.

Playing for England can sometimes be a thankless job as some fans struggle to look past their club rivalries and get behind the team.

As expected, Kane is already coming in for plenty of criticism on social media but it is clear based on the way the England players talk about the striker that he is highly respected by his teammates and fellow professionals.
