Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has suggested on talkSPORT that England international duo Kyle Walker and Nathaniel Clyne are the two best attacking right-backs in the world.

Walker is on the books of Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, while Clyne currently plays for Premier League rivals Liverpool.

The duo are considered as two of the best right-backs in the Premier League and played for England at the ongoing 2016 European Championship in France.

Redknapp believes that Walker and Clyne are the two best attacking right-backs in the world.

The former Tottenham and West Ham manager made the claim while discussing the prospect of Glenn Hoddle succeeding Roy Hodgson as the England head coach.

“At right-back, Walker and Clyne, you wouldn’t get a better attacking right-back anywhere in the world than them two,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“Defensively they are not, they are maybe not quite as strong, but going forward there would be no one better.”

Meanwhile, Jamie Redknapp has defended Harry Kane’s performance for England at the Euro 2016 finals in France.

The former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder has suggested that Kane’s failure to do much of note at the 2016 European Championship was due to lack of service.

The Tottenham striker struggled to play well on Monday evening, as England lost 2-1 to Iceland in the last 16.

“I said in these pages on Monday that Harry Kane has been suffering for a lack of service, and it certainly didn’t get any better,” Redknapp wrote in The Daily Mail.

“The crossing was absolutely appalling! I suppose it’s hardly surprising when you play inside-out wingers — the left-footed Daniel Sturridge was playing on the right and the right-footed Raheem Sterling lined up on the left.

“This tactic allows them to cut in and shoot on their stronger foot, but also means that they have to use their weaker foot to cross with when they get to the byline.

“The deliveries from the centre of the pitch were better, but Iceland are strong up the middle so Kane really needed better service from the wide men.”

Kane did not score a single goal in four matches for England in France and created just six chances.

During the 2015-16 season, the 22-year-old striker scored 25 goals and created 44 chances in 38 Premier League matches for Spurs.
