England travel to face the European Championship holders, Spain, in a friendly Alicante on Friday night as they start to gear up for Euro 2016 in France next summer.

Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson has already indicated that he will look to experiment in the match, with captain Wayne Rooney having to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench.

That gives an opportunity to one of the other strikers in the squad, and it looks as though Tottenham’s Harry Kane will start, with Everton’s Ross Barkley in the hole behind him.

The former shot to prominence last season after scoring more than 30 goals in all competitions for Spurs, and has carried that form to international level with three goals in his six caps to date.

He will come up against one of the best centre-backs in the world in Barcelona’s Gerard Pique though, who has starred for the Spanish giants and his national side – playing a major part in their World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 successes.

Here’s how the duo compare for their club sides this term…..
