FA assures Tottenham Hotspur that Harry Kane is not seriously injured
The prospect of losing Harry Kane to injury is not a new experience for Tottenham Hotspur and their fans.
In fact, the English skipper’s injury last season left us in disarray. More so given the subsequent injury to Son Heung-Min and the lack of a senior backup striker to call upon.
While we now do have Carlos Vinicius at the club, Kane is the unquestioned starter for the team. The 27-year-old has evolved his game to become both a goalscorer and a creator. He now has an incredible 15 goal contributions in just eight games this season.
Kane suffered a muscle injury while training with the England squad on Saturday. He is now a doubt for his country’s Nations League match against Belgium.
According to Football.London, Spurs have been assured by the FA that Kane’s problem is not serious in nature.
The fact that he has not been sent back to Spurs bodes well. This could mean that his injury may not indeed be as bad as feared. Kane was placed on the bench for England’s game against Belgium.
Gareth Southgate will do well to not risk the striker. England also face off against Denmark on Wednesday in yet another Nations League game.
Whether Kane will start the match against the Danes remains to be seen.
