Ex-Tottenham boss Redknapp: England have best strikers at Euros

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says England's strikers are the best in the Euros.

Redknapp, who missed out on the Three Lions job to Roy Hodgson, insists England can shock their rivals.

“Before the ­tournament, I said organisation in defence was key but, against the Swedes, England showed how threatening they are up front,” said Redknapp. “Every other team at the Euros will have taken note and nobody will fancy playing us.

“With Wayne Rooney at last ­available now for the match against Ukraine, there’s no way he can be left out. I’d play him alongside Danny Welbeck, who gives England good movement.

“The pair have developed a great understanding at Manchester United and we could reap the rewards of that. Wayne is raring to go, so I’m backing him to score.

“With the added threat of Andy Carroll off the bench, England have a scary looking attack. Steven Gerrard has had two very good games at the Euros and his cross for Carroll showed what pin-point accuracy he possesses.

“Frankly, I wouldn’t swap England’s front six for any at this tournament – including Spain’s."
