Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has claimed his England team-mate Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in world football.
Speaking to the Evening StandardThe 26-year-old full-back was full of praise for the Three Lions skipper after Kane scored his 49th international goal for England, equaling Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal record for the country.
Kane has seen his form improve in recent weeks after what has been a forgettable season for the Tottenham star’s standards, with the 28-year-old now on board 22 goals in all competitions this campaign under Antonio Conte.
As the season nears its finale, Kane’s form will be crucial to Tottenham securing the top four and Shaw believes the England star as one of the best forwards in world football is back at his best when the Three Lions take on Côte d’Ivoire Week.
The £27million United star said of Kane: “For me right now the way he’s playing he’s one of the best strikers in the world, probably the best. Hope you can keep this form, keep it up.
Shaw added in his international teammate: “He’s showing it week in and week out at the moment and it’s a pleasure to watch. May this continue for a long time and I am sure that he will be chasing another Golden Boot and all the other records.”
Kane returned to his best for England and Tottenham at the right moment
For the most part this season, Kane has played far below his standards for club and country, but now we see the Tottenham forward at his absolute best, with the forward scoring 11 goals for the north London club in 2022 alone.
With Kane now firing on all cylinders, the striker is in the best form needed if Tottenham is to beat United and Arsenal for that lucrative fourth place in the Premier League and his performances will translate into important performances for England as well.
