Ivan Rakitic makes "best" claim over Tottenham's Harry Kane

Ivan Rakitic has claimed that Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane is “maybe the best striker in the world”. The 27-year-old’s talents as a centre-forward are well known, but this season he’s been operating deeper to get on the ball and create opportunities. Kane has also been superb for the Three Lions, with a tally of 32 goals from 48 appearances, not to mention the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot. Former Croatia midfielder Rakitic says Kane could be key to England’s success at this year’s rescheduled European Championships, the two facing off in their first game of Group D. “I think of course England will be a big favourite not only for the group stages but to win the entire tournament, and I think it will be very hard to play against them,” the Sevilla midfielder said at an event for Livescore, via FourFourTwo. “However, with the mix between young and older players, Croatia will be once again really strong. Both Croatia and England will be ready, especially because we’ve had to wait one more year due to the European Championship being delayed. “It’s hard to pick out one player because England is a very strong team. They have maybe the best striker in the world at the moment in Harry Kane. I think their team is extremely well-prepared to achieve a lot of special things, not only in the European Championship but also at the World Cup in Qatar. “They have more successful years ahead of them so it will be really hard to play against them."
