England vs USA: Southgate gives latest injury update on Harry Kane


England head coach, Gareth Southgate, has provided the latest injury update on captain Harry Kane ahead of his side’s World Cup tie with the USA on Friday.

Kane sustained a knock to his right ankle in the second half of England’s World Cup 6-2 win over Iran on Monday.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker was substituted after 76 minutes of the encounter and underwent a scan to determine the severity of the injury.

Speaking in an interview with ITV, Southgate said that Kane would be ready for the USA clash.

He said: “He is good. He worked a little bit more individually today, but he will be back in with the team tomorrow and good for the game.

“We just checked him out just to see. I think, sometimes, when you’re treating things, it’s important to know exactly what is there and that is all good.

“It isn’t so much the ankle, it is more the foot. It was a poor challenge, really, but I think it is one that, fortunately, we have gotten away with reasonably lightly.

“I was [holding my breath] when he went down on the pitch, but once he would carry on playing, everything was good.”
