England vs USA: Southgate provides the most recent Harry Kane injury update.

Gareth Southgate, England’s head coach, has delivered the most recent injury update on captain Harry Kane ahead of his team’s World Cup match against the United States on Friday.

Kane was injured in the second half of England’s 6-2 World Cup victory over Iran on Monday.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker was replaced after 76 minutes of play and underwent an MRI to establish the extent of his injury.

Speaking in an interview with ITV, Southgate said that Kane would be ready for the USA clash.

He said: “He is good. He worked a little bit more individually today, but he will be back in with the team tomorrow and good for the game.

“We just checked him out just to see. I think, sometimes, when you’re treating things, it’s important to know exactly what is there and that is all good.

“It isn’t so much the ankle, it is more the foot. It was a poor challenge, really, but I think it is one that, fortunately, we have gotten away with reasonably lightly.

“I was [holding my breath] when he went down on the pitch, but once he would carry on playing, everything was good.”
