Harry Kane compared to Alan Shearer

There is no doubt he has been in fine form this season for Tottenham. A welcome surprise seeing a young English striker consistently perform in the Premier League and cup competitions including the Europa League. But is it too early to see Harry Kane compared to Alan Shearer?
Of course it is.

Although many people disagree, including some well-respected names in the world of football. Following his substitute appearance for England on Friday against Lithuania, where he scored after only being on the pitch for 79 seconds, many were quick to take to Twitter to praise the in form Spurs striker, and rightfully so. It was great to see Harry Kane bring his impressive goal scoring form to the international stage, albeit against weak opponents. But can he be compared to Shearer so quickly? These people think so…

Although there were a number of other tweets similar to those shown above, there were many more that ridiculed the comparison…

However, this Twitter user was certain of one similarity…

You may also laugh at the comparison, but Shearer himself has said that the young Tottenham striker reminds him of himself. If he keeps going at this rate he will certainly have a memorable career at both club and international level.
Bookies are even taking bets on whether Kane can surpass Shearer’s Premier League goal-scoring record. So far he has scored more than Shearer did by the age of 21, so perhaps a small bet at 100/1 wouldn’t be as stupid as you think. But it will certainly be a long time before you collect any winnings, if you collect any at all…
