Jamie Vardy should play with Harry Kane for England
Claude Puel has backed Jamie Vardy to partner Harry Kane at the World Cup.
Vardy and Kane both scored two goals in the 5-4 thriller at Wembley yesterday and are both turning their attention to England’s summer World Cup campaign in Russia.
“They can play between the lines, play with their team-mates and combine, to move between the defences and midfield.
“And Jamie, with good possibility, good moves, good solutions, perhaps it would be a good balance.”
The Frenchman went on to praise the City star
“I am happy about his work of course, about his mentality, because he doesn’t just score goals, but he gives the boost with the team with his pressing, his character,” said Puel.
“And after Jamie needs good service, and with good play we can give him good chances.
“It’s not just long balls and just battles with centre-backs.
“It’s good, it’s important because he’s always available between the lines, behind the defenders, he has good movement behind.
“He’s a goalscorer and of course it’s a good feeling to finish with 20 goals with his quality, and I hope in the future we can continue to give him good service and he can score a lot of goals.”
With the World Cup just 31 days away, it’s not long until we see Vardy hopefully leading the front line.
