Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has said Tottenham star Harry Kane would flourish in La Liga ahead of Monday’s UEFA Nations League clash between Spain and England.

Although he didn’t score, Kane dominated Ramos in Spurs’ 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League last season.

The striker ended up scoring 41 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions for Tottenham in 2017/18 before winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup over the summer.

However, Kane has now gone six games without a goal for the Three Lions – although he did break the net with an offside strike against Croatia last week.

And Ramos believes Spain must make sure Kane’s international goal drought continues.

The 32-year-old was full of praise when asked if Kane would succeed in La Liga.

According to BBC Sport, Ramos said: “Harry Kane is physically a fantastic striker but also technically. He can surprise you – but not me as we have prepared for him.

“There are always very technical players in the England team that are dangerous but I can assure you we have been watching them.

“We know the level of difficulty will be very high. We know we have a fantastic national team in front of us, and even though we played a great game at Wembley there are things we can improve.

“England had a fantastic World Cup. They have a lot of personality despite being very young, and offensively they are very dangerous.

“Harry Kane is a very good player. We have to keep his scoring drought going because that will be a good sign for us.”

After a rusty start to the campaign, Kane has now scored five goals in eight Premier League appearances so far this season.

Tottenham will be hoping their talisman doesn’t pick up any injuries ahead of Saturday’s London derby against West Ham United.
