Switzerland boss Petkovic: Spurs striker Kane has right attitude

Switzerland boss Vladimir Petkovic admits he's a big fan of Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Switzerland face Kane and England later this week.

Petkovic said: “I don't like to pick out one player in a team but if you want me to give you one from this England side, it would be Harry Kane — and the reason is his attitude.

"After scoring three goals against Panama, he was asked to do nine TV interviews afterwards. The Swiss FIFA press officer was wary of asking him to do so many. But Harry said, 'I am proud to play for my country – and now I'm proud to talk for my country.

“What can you say? Just a great guy. Just a great attitude.

“Some people might not see this kind of thing as being an important part of the job, but I think it tells you a lot about this England team – and why they are so strong."
