Tottenham Hotspur and England striker, Harry Kane, was spotted with a ‘swollen’ ankle after the 0-0 draw with the USA last night in Qatar, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claimed that Kane’s ankle looked ‘worryingly swollen’ immediately after the match, and added that ‘evidence suggests’ it was ‘heavily strapped’ during the game itself.

The Three Lions captain played all 90 minutes as England struggled to create chances of any note against the Americans, wasting an opportunity to qualify for the knockouts after two games.

Kane arguably had England’s two best chances of the night with a first-half blocked shot in the box and a late headed opportunity that Harry would have expected to do better with.

David Ornstein was the first to report after the 6-2 win over Iran that Kane was spotted with a slight limp and strapping on his ankle in the media zone.

The Athletic later updated fans that Kane was set to undergo a scan on his ankle, but the eventual results showed no significant damage (Daily Mail) and Gareth Southgate eventually confirmed Kane would play against the USA (SkySports).

Spurs Web Opinion:

This is likely to be one of those injuries that requires heavy strapping, light training and maybe pain injections to get Kane through the tournament, which is fine for England but a real bother for Spurs to deal with come December 26th.
