Neville: I have never seen a striker do this as well as Harry Kane

Phil Neville has praised Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane following his double against Queens Park Rangers.

BBC Pundit Phil Neville says Harry Kane’s work-rate is the best he has ever seen from a centre-forward as the Tottenham Hotspur ace helped his side to victory over Queen Park Rangers, the BBC report.

Spurs went in to their match at QPR looking to bounce back from their League Cup final defeat and get their top-four challenge back underway.

After an even first-half, the visitors struck twice through Kane, which proved enough to claim the three points despite a late Hoops consolation courtesy of former Spurs man Sandro.

Aside from his two goals, Kane was influential throughout and put on a wonderful performance in front of England manager Roy Hodgson, who was in attendance at Loftus Road.

It appears the 21-year-old has everything to succeed both in the Premier League and on the international scene, but Neville believes his work-rate is his real forte and what separates him from the rest.

"I have never seen a centre-forward work as hard as Harry Kane. He's been all over the place, chasing every ball,” Neville explained, telling the BBC.

"Not only should Harry Kane be in the next England squad, he should be starting as well."

Kane’s double takes his season tally to 16 Premier League goals in 18 starts, with Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Chelsea’s Diego Costa the only players who have scored more.

With ten games remaining, boss Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping his star striker can keep up his superb 2015 goal scoring form in order to aid his side’s top-four push.

The victory takes the White Hart Lane outfit up to sixth place with 50 points, three points short of Manchester United who currently occupy fourth and one point behind Liverpool in fifth.
