Man Utd fullback Shaw: Tottenham striker Kane best in the world

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw has declared England teammate Harry Kane as the best striker in the world.

Kane's match-winning penalty in Saturday's 2-1 friendly victory over Switzerland saw him draw level with Sir Bobby Charlton on 49 England goals.

That leaves just Wayne Rooney ahead of him, on 53, as the Tottenham forward continues to lead the way for Gareth Southgate's side.

Shaw said, "For me at the moment, the way he's playing, he's one of the best strikers in the world, probably the best. So hopefully you can keep that form up, keep it going.

"He's showing it week in week out at the moment and it's a joy to watch. Long may that continue and I'm sure he will be hunting another Golden Boot and all the other records."
