Harry Kane Ruled out for a Month

Jamie Carragher suspended by Sky Sports

Harry Kane is not as badly injured as Tottenham Hotspur and England first feared with medical tests revealing that the striker has damaged lateral ligaments in his right ankle. 

According to the London club, preliminary assessments have confirmed that the England striker will only be out for a month.

The length of the injury means that the English Premier League top goalscorer is set to be fit for England's World Cup campaign.

Kane, who has scored 35 goals for Spurs this season, injured his right ankle in a collision with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic recently.

The 24-year-old will miss Tottenham's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City on Saturday, as well as two Three Lions friendly matches the following week.

Manager 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 the Lilywhite's FA Cup quarter-final victory over Millwall in March 2017. On that occasion he missed four weeks of action.
