Harry Kane world best

France Football has suggested a World Under-23 XI which includes Harry Kane despite the French press distaste of Tottenham. They almost waged a campaign last summer to get Hugo Lloris to leave.

Closer inspection reveals that it isn't really a World XI but a world XI from European football, given there are no players put forward currently playing in South America.

Let's have a look at the European playing World XI that sets up in a 4-1-4-1 formation with Harry Kane as the lone striker.

  • GK - Jan Oblak (La Liga) Atletico Madrid 23 (24 next January) Slovenian under contract until 2021
  • RB - Hector Bellerin (Premier League) Arsenal 21 (22 next March) Spanish under contract until 2019
  • CB - Marquinhos (Ligue 1) PSG 21 (22 in May) Brazilian under contract until 2019
  • CB - Raphael Varane (La Liga) Real Madrid 23 (24 next April)  French under contract until 2020
  • LB - David Alaba (Bundesliga) Bayern Munich 23 (24 in June) Austrian under contract until 2021
  • DM - Marco Verratti (Ligue 1) PSG 23 (24 in November) Italian under contract until 2020
  • MID - Philippe Coutinho (Premier League) Liverpool 23 (24 in June) Brazilian under contract until 2020
  • MI(D - Paul Pogba (Serie A) Juventus 23 (24 next March) French under contract until 2019

  • CF - Harry Kane (Premier League) Tottenham Hotspur 22 (23 in July) English under contract until 2020

4 players from the Premier League (England)
