“I like Dele Alli – I know he’s been picked up for a bit of aggressive play, but I like that in a player,” Kewell told The Sun. “From where he’s come to what he’s done is phenomenal. I think he’s an exceptional player.”

“Give him half a yard and he’ll score – that’s a striker for you,” said Kewell about Kane. “I’ve played with world-class strikers like Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Fernando Torres. They are players who only needed half a yard to score – that’s Harry Kane.”
