England coach, Gareth Southgate has hailed Harry Kane as the “best goalscorer in the world” after his late winner sent England into the inaugural Nations League semi-finals.
England came from a goal down to secure a 2-1 victory over Croatia at Wembley on Sunday to leapfrog Spain to top spot in group A4 and relegate their opponents.
Kane’s 85th-minute strike came at the perfect moment for England, and ended an eight-game goal drought with the national team for the captain.
In his praise for the 25-year-old, Southgate said: “He’s the best goal-scorer in the world. You’re always loathe to take a player off of his ability.
“He’s our main penalty-taker, leader and his hold-up play is critical. We have huge belief in him and he is so hungry to lead the team further.”
