Ahead of England’s showdown with Ukraine in Euro 2020, Jack Grealish has opened up on his admiration for teammate Harry Kane.

Jack Grealish rates England teammate Harry Kane as the best player he has ever played with.

The Aston Villa midfielder came off the bench in England’s 2-0 win over Germany on Tuesday at Wembley to assist Kane for his first goal in Euro 2020 and to silence his critics.

Kane now hopes to build on his goal tally ahead of England’s quarter-final meeting with Ukraine in Rome.

“It is obviously good to get your first goal at a tournament, especially when all you lot would not shut up about it,” Grealish told Sky Sports on Kane ending his goal drought.

“It is obviously good. To get his first one, he will be buzzing, but no one in there would ever doubt H. He is the best player I have ever played with. He is unbelievable. He is an unbelievable professional on and off the pitch.

“When you see him around the place, this is why he is England captain. The thing that sticks out is that he is not just a goalscorer.

“There are players from the past who just scored goals, goals, goals. In my opinion, he will break the Premier League and the England [scoring records] but he is not just a goalscorer. He is unbelievable.

“Like when he drops deep and finds passes and puts it through people’s legs. He is obviously unbelievable and I am buzzing for him that he has obviously got the first goal and hopefully for all of us there are many more to come.”
