Harry Kane: Tottenham and England striker out until April with ligament damage

Latest news

    Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane suffered damaged ankle ligaments in Sunday’s win over Bournemouth and will be out until next month.

    Spurs said in a statement that “preliminary assessments” confirmed the injury after a scan on Monday.

    Kane, who has scored 35 goals for Spurs this season, injured his right ankle in a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

    The prognosis means he is set to be fit for England’s World Cup campaign.

    But he will miss Tottenham’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, as well as two England friendly matches the following week.

    Gareth Southgate’s men travel to the Netherlands on 23 March before hosting Italy on 27 March.

    England’s first World Cup match is on 18 June against Tunisia.
