England wait on Kane’s fitness ahead USA clash Friday

THE Three Lions are optimistic the team skipper will be ready for tomorrow’s United States clash after having a scan on his ankle.

  Kane felt discomfort after Monday’s 6-2 win over Iran and as a precaution, went to hospital for tests.

  But the Tottenham striker believes barring a set-back, he will be fit and ready to play the second group stage clash on Friday.

  The news is a big relief for manager, Gareth Southgate who feared he could lose his star man.

  Kane was taken off after 75 minutes in the opener on Monday after being clattered.

  He was spotted hobbling and had his ankle strapped in the media mixed zone after the clash.

  Following the Iran game, Southgate said: “I think Harry’s fine. It looked a bad tackle but he carried on in the game.

  “We took him off really because we felt it was a moment we could do that.

  “It was good to be able to refresh the forward line not only to get the players on, but also to get the players on because there were some very close calls in who starts in those positions.

  “We have some fabulous talent and we had players that, if we needed them to change the game, they could do it.”

  But the Spurs star still felt discomfort on Tuesday and the England boss therefore insisted on he went for a scan.
