Troy Deeney believes Harry Kane is not considered as 'world class' because he is English.

The Watford skipper heaped praise on his compatriot on Thursday, before going on to describe the Tottenham talisman's goal record as 'ridiculous'.

Deeney argued that the England captain does not get the recognition he deserves because of his nationality before insisting that he should be in any top-five player debate.
