Russia 2018 world Cup : Kane is the best No 9 - Southgate

England coach Gareth Southgate insists he would not swap Harry Kane for any other No 9 at the World Cup following his hat-trick against Panama on Sunday.

Kane is now top scorer at the World Cup following his treble, which included two penalties, adding to the two he scored in the 2-1 victory against Tunisia on Monday.

Kane now has 18 goals in 26 appearances for England, and after being asked in his press conference whether his influence can be compared to that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for their countries, Southgate heaped praise on the captain.

"He's there, he's up at the top. We wouldn't swap him for anyone at the tournament in terms of No 9s. We know that when he gets opportunities he's going to bury them, you sit there very confident in his ability to take chances.
