England legend Alan Shearer has spoken of his admiration for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
While speaking to the BBC, the Newcastle legend revealed Kane had fully deserved his call up, and spoke highly of hs ability.
“Even before Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge pulled out because of injury, I said that Kane should start against Lithuania in Friday’s Euro 2016 qualifier,” Shearer said.
“One of the reasons I think that is because he has got the confidence to go into the England set-up and straightaway believe that he belongs at that level.”
“He wants the chance to prove himself. I was the same, and I can understand why he has been compared to me.”
“He has got a great touch, heading ability, can mix it physically and his finishing is top class.”
“There is a bit of everything to his game and he is happy to run in behind defenders or come short looking for the ball.”
