Watch: Harry Kane gets recognition from Ballon d’Or winner Andriy Shevchenko

Harry Kane wheels away in celebration after scoring a goal against Ukraine

Andriy Shevchenko paid his regards to two-goal hero Harry Kane in a real ‘game recognize game’ moment after England’s 4-0 win in the quarterfinals of Euro 2020 at Stadio Olimpico.

The Ukraine manager was seen acknowledging Harry Kane’s heroics against his side as he embraced the Tottenham star with a warm hug after the full-time whistle in Rome.

England decimated their rivals on the night to book a semi-final date against Denmark as Harry Kane announced his arrival at the tournament with a brace along with goals from Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.

Compliments from a legendary striker in Shevchenko – who won the Ballon d’Or in 2004 – will only serve as a boost for Harry Kane’s confidence as the Three Lions prepare to break their 55-year long trophy drought.
