"When you win 3-0 and you play well it's easy to say different things, but I am happy with him, he's part of my plan and he was very good". Tony Cascarino saw Batistuta in his pomp and is keeping tabs on Kane - but who does he think will be better? His team mates have now scored 18 goals and conceded none in their last four away games - form that if they can match at Wembley will make them serious title contenders.
