The award for the World's Best Player has over the years been rotated between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

But a new face in Harry Kane will soon come into the picture, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has predicted.

Pochettino posits that Kane's double against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League goes a long way to proving that he is among the best strikers in the world.

The 24-year-old has netted at least 20 goals in his three English top-flight campaigns to date, finishing as top scorer in each of the past two.

Kane himself admits he needs to do more on the big stage like the Champions League to be considered a 'world-class striker', though, and Pochettino believes that the England international has done his ratings a lot of good with two goals in the 3-1 win over Dortmund.

"Kane was fantastic," Pochettino told reporters. "You can see today (Wednesday), scoring goals in the Champions League. He receives the credit he deserves.

"For me he's one of the best strikers in the world. In the Champions League, the most important competition in the world, scoring will give him the credit he deserves."

After yet another goalless August, Kane has now struck six goals in four games during September for club and country.
