"Best striker in the world": Tammy Abraham hails Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has praised Premier League rival and England teammate Harry Kane.
Abraham has been Chelsea’s main striker since coming back from his loan spell at Aston Villa last season.
The 22-year-old has had 13 goals to his name from 25 appearances in the Premier League this season, along with three assists.
His impressive form helped him earn his first England senior team call-up for the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
He made his competitive debut in October against the Czech Republic but scored his first goal for England just over a month later in 7-0 win against Montenegro.
At the moment, Abraham still plays second-fiddle to Kane for the striker spot. And according to Tammy, Kane is the best number nine in the world.
Speaking during Copa 90’s FIFA 20 match against Tottenham Hotspur’s Ryan Sessegnon on Friday, Tammy said: “Best striker in the world. Just training with Harry (Kane) is crazy.
“Even when we just had little things like set-pieces before a game, the ball came to him in the box and everyone was just chilling and relaxing, Kane just banged it into the top corner. You could just look at him and ‘wow'”.
Kane has been out since Spurs’ loss against Southampton on New Year’s day due to a hamstring injury.
And the 26-year-old still managed to bag 11 goals in the Premier League and six goals in the Champions League despite his long absence.
