Indeed, this first World Cup meeting between the pair will have a historic outcome.
The failure of those three attacking players sparking has forced Kane to dip deeper in the last couple of matches, with the centre-forward often found drifting back to the half-way line to get a sniff of the ball and England have to make sure he is not left isolated tonight.
