Gareth Southgate plans to start Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane against Denmark
The England skipper suffered a muscle injury while training with the England squad on Saturday. Fears regarding his potential absence were downplayed by the FA.
They moved quickly to reassure Tottenham fans that the injury was not serious. That appeared to be the case as Kane was named on the bench for our 2-1 win over Belgium last night.
Kane came off the bench and played 24 minutes against the world’s top team. He could however be thrown in from the start against Denmark.
Doing so will set Southgate on a collision course with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho. The England boss has clarified that Kane is suffering from muscle fatigue rather than injury. This has done little to assuage fears at Tottenham.
The club are fearful of their ace striker aggravating his condition before returning to Hotspur Way. Given our hectic schedule this season, Spurs have every right to be cautious regarding the handling of Kane.
The 27-year-old has started the season with a bang for Spurs. The 27-year-old has evolved his game to become both a goalscorer and a creator this season. He now has an incredible 15 goal contributions in just eight games this season.
According to The Mirror, Tottenham made a request for the striker to be released to the club. It was rejected. Hopefully, no harm will come to the Spurs ace. He is set to play a key role in what could be a defining season for us under Mourinho.

To lose a player of Kane’s ability is a huge loss for any team. Thankfully unlike last season, we will not be left with no specialist striker to call upon. Having signed Carlos Vinicius from Benfica, Spurs have a proven goalscorer waiting in the wings if needed.
