England football team captain Harry Kane is set to have a scan of his right ankle ahead of England’s World Cup match against the United States. Harry Kane went down after being tackled in the second half of England’s win against Iran and he was replaced by Callum Wilson in the 75th minute.
According to the reports, Harry Kane’s right ankle was lightly strapped after the game, and he had walked with a limp, but England’s manager said after the match that Gareth Southgate believed Harry Kane was fine.
Gareth Southgate said that it looked like a bad tackle, but Harry Kane carried on in the game. Gareth Southgate added that they took Kane off because they felt it was the right moment in the match they could do.
The need for a scan suggests that Harry Kane might still be struggling with his right ankle a day after the 6-2 win against Iran. Harry Kane has provided two assists during the game, and it will be a big setback if he is forced to miss upcoming games. England is currently top in their group.
Harry Kane is the second-highest goal scorer of all time for England, and he can surpass his tally during the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament.
