Ollie Watkins addresses Harry Kane comparison ahead of England vs Italy


England are set to host Italy at Wembley in their final game of the October international break on Tuesday.

Ollie Watkins vs Harry Kane

England’s first game of the current break was a friendly meeting vs Australia this past Friday.

Gareth Southgate opted for a slightly weaker XI than normal but England still go the job done after Jack Grealish’s low ball across the six-yard box was put in by Ollie Watkins.

That goal saw Watkins’ fine goalscoring streak continue for both club and country and also sparked comparisons between the Aston Villa man and Harry Kane. On those comparisons, Watkins said:

“I’ve got a completely different playing style to Harry”, Watkins said when asked whether he is pushing England’s all-time leading goalscorer for a starting berth.

“He can drop deep and play some unbelievable long passes. That’s not my game; I can’t do that. My strengths are running in behind and stretching [the defence].

“I can only do what I can do. Whenever I put on the shirt, I try and do the best I can for my country.”
