Injured Kane Out For A Month

Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane suffered damaged ankle ligaments in Sunday’s win over 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 the 24-year-old 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.

Kane missed 10 games last season after suffering a similar injury to the same ankle in a game at Sunderland in September 2016.

He injured the same ankle again in Tottenham’s FA Cup quarter-final victory over Millwall in March 2017. On that occasion he missed four weeks of action.
