England captain and 2018 Golden Boot winner Harry Kane received the all-clear after a scan today on his right ankle.
England striker Harry Kane received the all-clear today after undergoing a scan on an ankle problem sustained in Monday’s Group B win over IR Iran.
Kane, adidas Golden Boot winner at the last FIFA World Cup, had treatment on the field early in the second half of England’s 6-2 win after going down under a heavy challenge. He went off after 75 minutes and was reportedly seen with light strapping on the ankle. However, a scan has revealed no damage and he will be available to face USA on Friday.
England manager Gareth Southgate said after Monday’s match: “I think Harry’s fine. It looked like a bad tackle but he carried on in the game. We took him off because we felt it was a moment in the game we could do that.”
