An update on Harry Kane’s injury ahead of England’s match against the United States

After a successful scan, Harry Kane, who was injured in England’s victory over Iran, is reported to be fine.

Harry Kane’s fitness is expected to be good for Friday’s World Cup match against the United States, according to England.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane underwent an ankle scan yesterday, giving England serious fitness concerns.

The injury occurred against Iran. Although Kane has a history of ankle issues, it is believed that this was more of a precaution and that he will be OK.

A bad challenge caught the 29-year-old gripping his right foot in pain shortly after halftime of Monday’s 6-2 Group B victory over Iran.

In spite of continuing to play until the 75th minute, Kane was seen leaving England’s World Cup with a slight limp and his right ankle lightly strapped.

After the England captain’s injury scare, Jordan Pickford has confirmed that Harry Kane is good but a little bit sore.

The Three Lions goalkeeper said, “I think he is good; probably just a little bit sore. He was playing on the grass with us today, so I know he’s okay. He is our captain.”

Gareth Southgate, the rest of the Three Lions team, and England’s supporters are all greatly relieved by this news as they try to recover from the nation’s defeats at the 2018 World Cup and the 2020 European Championship.

Though it must be acknowledged that Kane still has some doubts given his history of multiple ankle issues during his career.

All eyes will be on whether Southgate decides to play or bench Kane on Friday as England waits to learn the exact nature of the striker’s injury.

It’s not the end of the world if he’s rested. Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish, and Wilson are just a few of the attacking alternatives available to the Three Lions, who shone off the bench against Iran.

Immediately following the match against Iran, England manager Gareth Southgate shrugged off worries about the situation.

Regarding the 2018 Golden Boot winner, the manager commented, “I think Harry’s fine.

I mean, it clearly seemed like a nasty tackle, but he continued playing, and we truly took him off because we believed it was a moment we could do that.”
