2022 FIFA World Cup: Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane likely to feature for England vs USA

England are optimistic that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane will be fit for the tie against the USMNT this Friday (25 November). It will be the Three Lions’ second group-stage game in the FIFA World Cup.

The England captain was caught by a bad tackle from Iran’s Morteza Pouraliganji in the 48th minute. He continued to play till the 75th minute when he was subbed off, with his team ultimately winning the game 6-2.

Kane underwent a ‘precautionary scan’ on his right knee after the victory and there were concerns about his fitness. However, the Spurs man did take part in training on Wednesday and there is now confidence within the England camp that he will be able to continue, as per the Guardian.

His knee injury has always been a problem for him, especially between 2016-19. Since then, while there have been some sprains in between, Kane has largely avoided serious injury problems.

The striker, who won the Golden Boot in the last World Cup in Russia has been in good form this season. The 29-year-old has scored 12 goals in 15 league appearances for the Lilywhites so far this season and continued that form in Qatar too.

While he did not get on the scoresheet, he did assist two goals before coming off. If all is good for the striker, he will likely lead his side again out the tunnel on Friday.

Jordan Pickford, England and Everton’s number one had this to say about Kane, as quoted in The Guardian.

“I think Harry is good, probably just a little bit sore. I’m sure he is fine. He was out on the grass with us today, which is good. He is our captain.”

English fans will be very happy to know that their captain and talisman will be able to continue. The 29-year-old will hope to play against the USMNT on Friday and hopefully get on the scoresheet and open his account for this year’s World Cup.

Hopefully, he keeps fit throughout the tournament and returns fully fit. He has been overworked, to say the least, and has played in every single Spurs game so far this campaign. He needs a rest, but it’s hard to see when that will come.
