Arsenal legend Adams: So easy for defenders facing Kane

Arsenal legend Tony Adams is unimpressed by England coach Gareth Southgate's use of Harry Kane.

Adams feels the Tottenham striker is being played too deep.

He told The Sun: "Honestly, if I was a defender at this World Cup I would absolutely love playing against Harry Kane.

"He doesn't get in behind the defence and he doesn't face you up. He's a link player who is going deeper and deeper to get the ball.

"People probably feel I've got it in for Harry after I also said we should take the captaincy off him and give it to Declan Rice. But that isn't the case at all. And it's not an Arsenal-Spurs thing either.

"We need Harry Kane, he is obviously one of the best strikers in the world, you only have to look at his numbers, but if I was a centre-back up against him in Qatar I'd have a cigar on."
