England captain Harry Kane has been dominating the headlines this summer, with his six goals in Russia firing the Three Lions to their first World Cup quarter-final in 12 years and himself to the top of the Golden Boot charts.
Of course regular Premier League watchers will not be overly surprised to see the Spurs man hitting the back of the net with such consistency in Russia, with the 24-year-old having established himself as the best out-and-out number nine in England’s top flight in recent seasons.
Kane became one of the youngest players to reach 100 Premier League goals earlier this season and former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville now believes that the talented striker deserves to be mentioned in the same bracket as the EPL’s all time leading goalscorer, Alan Shearer.
“You shouldn’t mention people and compare them lightly,” he added.
“Shearer is the best striker that I played with for England. I would start to put him into that category.”
Kane will get the chance to add to his World Cup tally when the Three Lions meet Sweden this Saturday.
