Some Spurs fans on social media are angered by reports that Gareth Southgate is set to play Harry Kane in England’s Nations League clash against Denmark on Wednesday.

Kane was reported to be a doubt for the clash against Belgium on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury.

However, The England manager confirmed before the game that Kane was only suffering from muscle fatigue and that he had not picked up an injury.

The striker started the game against Belgium on the bench but Southgate bought him on for a second-half cameo as he helped the Three Lions to see off a hard-fought 2-1 win.

The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham do not want their star striker to be risked against Denmark and would like to see him return to Hotspur Way as they are worried he could aggravate his injury.

However, the report asserts that Southgate is likely to give the 27-year-old a long run-out on Wednesday.

Some Spurs fans on social media have blasted the England manager and claimed that he would be solely responsible if Kane were to get injured after playing against Denmark.

Given the form Dominic Calver-Lewin and Ings are in, Southgate can certainly get away with resting Kane but one can understand why he would want him to play in an important game. Hopefully, Kane will not give the green light to be involved in the match unless he is feeling 100 per cent. I personally think Kane is likely to start on Wednesday since he got half an hour under his belt against Belgium and seemed to be moving fine.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. International Managers (and especially Southgate) have no long term investment in the fitness, well-being or careers of their borrowed players. The best league players get “used up” on the International scene. If one star gets injured; they simply “call up” a different player. Being “called to the National team is not an honour – It’s a risk which invites injury and fitness issues and could lead to career- limiting problems. If players like Kane want to preserve their career opportunities, they should decline national call ups. We fans should press the FAs to restrict International events to players age 29 or over.
