​Tottenham star Kane can't wait to take on 'amazing' Chiellini

Tottneham striker Harry Kane is very excited about the prospect of competing against a great defender like Georgio Chiellini.

The first time Kane came up against Chiellini was when he made his England debut, when the side drew 1-1 away in Italy.

Kane is now a much better striker, and he is widely regarded as one of the most in-form front men in all of Europe. No one scored more than him in 2017 in the major leagues.

Now he faces a key test against Juventus in the Champions League.

"He's an amazing defender," Kane said in the pre-match press conference.

"My first start for England probably the first five minutes he made a challenge and I probably had a dead leg for 10 minutes.

"It was a good welcome to international football!

"We know how good their defence is as a whole and obviously their goalkeeper as well. They're a fantastic team and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

"They've kept a lot of clean sheets, but we've scored a lot of goals in the Premier League so it should be a good test."
