The former England man believes the golden duo could play for any of Europe's top clubs.

England take on Germany this evening away from home and one former England player who knows how it feels to be a winner in Germany is Emile Heskey.

He scored number five in the famous 5-1 win for England over Germany in September 2001.

Now 38-years-old he is still playing with Championship basement club Bolton Wanderers and will be casting a keen eye over the friendly this evening.

Two players that will be looking to shine in the game are in form Tottenham Hotspur pair Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

Heskey himself is very impressed by the two Spurs players and believes they are both good enough to play for some of the world’s biggest teams.

He told the Daily Mail this week:

“Individually, I am so impressed with this squad.

“Who wouldn’t want Harry Kane and Dele Alli and Vardy in their squad? Alli would go into a lot of top European teams. Harry Kane is the same. Could Kane go to Real Madrid?

“I would have him up there with Karim Benzema, I really would. They haven’t got the experience but they get it by playing in games like the ones this summer.”

Of course, whilst Spurs players will happily admit the talent of their star English players, they will not be so keen on the idea of them heading to other teams.

Luckily for Tottenham fans the pair seem to be enjoying their time at White Hart Lane and with the club battling for the Premier League title they are unlikely to be asking for a transfer any time soon.

England fans, including Heskey, will hope they can replicate their club form on the international stage tonight.
