Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane, is well used to being named on shortlists for the best players in the world, but it is rare that he is joined by another Spurs forward.

The FIFPRO World XI shortlist has been announced today and Heung Min Son joins Kane in a list of just 15 forwards.

This comes after the South Korean was instrumental in Tottenham’s Champions League campaign last season, scoring the opener against Borussia Dortmund and three against Man City.
