Craig Bellamy has likened Harry Kane to Real Madrid legend Raul after his match-winning performance in Tottenham's 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund.
The England international scored in both halves as Spurs kicked off their Champions League campaign, and ended their Wembley woes, with an impressive display against the Bundesliga club.
And, speaking on The Debate, Bellamy was bowled over by yet another fine performance from the Spurs frontman.
"When Kane first broke onto the scene he reminded me of Raul," the former Liverpool and Manchester City forward said.

"He's not lightning quick, he's very clever in his movement, he understands where he needs to be and he can create half a yard from anything.
"Raul is incredible and will always remain incredible but Kane has got similar traits to where he was, he's that type of forward.
"If Kane can stay on this path, he's the only current player who can threaten Alan Shearer's Premier League goalscoring record."
Danny Murphy joined Bellamy and Geoff Shreeves in the studio to react to what was only Tottenham's second win in their last 12 outings at Wembley.
And Murphy was full of praise for Kane's ability to adapt to the opposition and still provide such a potent threat in front of goal.
"Kane has strength and power, he knocks peoples about and doesn't mind a tussle, he's not just about having the ball to feet," he added.
"He doesn't mind getting over people and winning headers or having a fight. When you're on the back foot you can play ball up to him.
"I remember when he was playing at Leicester and he played as a number 10, where he was good because he's got those little half turns and he's not a bad passer."
