Cape Town - Leicester City manager Claude Puel reckons Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane can form a formidable attacking partnership for England at the upcoming Soccer World Cup.
The two forwards have been prolific in the recently-concluded English Premier League season with Kane netting 30 goals for Tottenham while Vardy scored 20 for Leicester.
Kane finished as the runner-up to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the race for the golden boot award.
The Tottenham striker has been the first-choice striker for England manager, Gareth Southgate, who is expected to include the two forwards in his squad, but Puel feels the Three Lions can be formidable with both players in the starting line-up.
Puel told Sky Sports: "I think sometimes, of course, these two players can play together.
“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.
“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 goal-scorer 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.”
