Belgium and Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has backed club team-mate Harry Kane to end his major tournament goal drought – as long as it is not against Belgium.
Kane has drawn a blank in seven appearances at major international tournaments – four at Euro 2016 and three at the Under-21 European Championships a year earlier.
However Alderweireld thinks Kane will end that run at the World Cup but he is hoping it does not happen when Belgium face England on June 28th in Group G.
“He’ll score everywhere, he’s one of the best strikers in the world,” said Alderweireld.”I only hope – and I think – he will not score against us. We will do our best. He ‘s an unbelievable striker and I am confident he will score whenever he wants.
He added: “I don’t think the England captaincy will be pressure for him, it will only give him more confidence to achieve even more and perform the way he wants.”
