KANE PAIN ENGLAND have suffered an injury scare after Harry Kane limped out of the Khalifa Stadium with his ankle strapped.
The Three Lions began their World Cup campaign in Qatar with a brilliant 6-2 victory over Iran this afternoon.
Harry Kane has provided England with an injury scare after he was spotted with his ankle strapped.
He was spotted limping with his ankle strapped after the win over Iran.
The star was sent tumbling by Iran’s Morteza Pouraliganji’s tackle.
Kane did not appear to be too worried afterwards as he visited his loved ones in the stands.
Bukayo Saka grabbed two of the goals while Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford also got their names on the scoresheet.
However, England’s captain not only failed to get amongst the goals, he also suffered a knock to his ankle.
Kane went down holding his ankle following a meaty tackle at the start of the second half.
He was able to continue playing after treatment but he was given a breather later on as he was subbed off on 76 minutes.
Three Lions’ record breaking World Cup win over Iran, Wales take on USA later
As he left the ground he had strapping on his ankle as he limped towards the team bus.
Sun Sport understands that he will be assessed over the next 48 hours, but England have no serious fears over his fitness.
Boss Gareth Southgate said afterwards: “I think Harry [Kane]’s fine.”
England now face a wait over their talisman before their next group game.
They face the USA on Friday in the second match of Group B.
And that is before their third and final one against Wales on Tuesday 29 November.
Kane will also be desperate to play in both of those matches as he needs just three more goals to overtake Wayne Rooney as England’s all-time top scorer
