Legendary Italian striker, Christian Vieri has now claimed that Harry Kane is the most complete English striker of all time and compared him favourably to Alan Shearer.

Kane’s late header against West Brom was his 150th strike in the Premier League, an astonishing achievement for someone who is only 27 years of age and still has his peak years ahead of him.

Knowing his determination and self-belief, the Tottenham man is likely eyeing Shearer’s all-time record tally of 260 in the Premier League.

Should he continue at the same pace, the England captain has more than a decent chance, with only Sergio Aguero and Shearer himself having reached the 150 mark faster than Kane (90 min).

Vieri certainly knows a thing or two about what makes a top striker, having been a feared marksman during his own playing days.

The legendry striker, who scored over 200 times for club and country in his career, labelled Kane the most un-English striker due to his playing style.

The former Inter striker said in response to a Q and A on Instagram (as relayed by TBR Football): “He is the only Englishman who is not English (in his playing style). He has the technique and sees the game. They say that Shearer was the strongest English striker. I can agree – but Kane is the most complete.”
