Southgate: Kane compares himself to Ronaldo and Messi

Southgate: Kane compares himself to Ronaldo and Messi

The Tottenham star has yet to find the net in the Premier League this season, but grabbed two goals as England beat Malta 4-0, taking his worldwide tally to 10 since making his debut in 2015.

And Southgate has revealed that Welbeck is a key player in his World Cup plans.

"I was having some interaction with Julen Lopetegui at a game and he was commenting on how lucky I was to have Harry playing, " he said. "We feel confident and hopefully we'll get a good result". Why can't that happen moving forward?

"I like the current composition of their team and I think they are the future of football". I remember watching him against Spain under Fabio [Capello] so we are going back quite a long way since he made his debut. He relishes the occasion. He's only 24 and there's so much more to come from him, these are still the early stages of his career'.

Slovakia tightened their grip on second place in Group F, which will yield a spot in the play-offs, after Adam Nemec's 81st-minute tap-in earned them a 1-0 win over Slovenia in Trnava on Friday.

The Spurs striker has always admitted he is dreaming of overtaking Messi and Ronaldo to be crowned the world's top player.

"This is the same narrative I heard when I was playing, so I'm able to contextualise and rationalise it. He's doing that for Spurs now in the biggest matches".

Jordan Henderson will again captain the side in Monday's encounter at Wembley, where goalkeeper Joe Hart, under so much scrutiny of late, centre-back Phil Jones and frontman Harry Kane will retain their starting roles. "To have that depth of attacking talent is really, really powerful".

"I fully recognise that our job is to try and entertain and excite the supporters", Southgate told journalists at the Tottenham Hotspur training ground in Enfield, north London on Sunday.

England are two points clear of closest rivals Slovakia at the top of Group F and a victory would put them on the brink of sealing their place in Russian Federation, while defeat would see them lose top spot.

"It's also a fantastic opportunity for us now".

"You just don't know".

"We want to go for the win and there's no way we're going out there looking for a draw". A draw, obviously, keeps us top of the group but we want to win.
