Ian Wright has praised Harry Kane’s goalscoring prowess, saying he is up there with Messi and Ronaldo.
The former England international has also backed the Tottenham man to break Rooney’s goalscoring record at England.
Kane has been in exceptional form for both club and country so far this season, scoring 15 goals already. He has 12 goals to his name from 23 appearances in an England shirt.
The ex-England frontman wrote in The Sun: “I’d like to think I know a thing or two about striking and I genuinely believe he is going to rewrite the record books for our national team.
“That’s right. By the time Harry hangs up his boots, I would be amazed if he hasn’t surpassed Wayne Rooney and his Three Lions haul of 53 goals.
“His scoring run at the moment is right up there with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“I am not saying he is as good as them yet, but – just like you always fancy them to stick it away when they get a chance – it is the same with Kane.
“And before anyone accuses me of hyping him up just to knock him down, that will not be an issue.
“Harry is so good, with such solid foundations, no one will be able to knock him down.”
