Massive Scare For Tottenham And England As Harry Kane Goes Off Injured

Harry Kane potentially suffered ligament damage to his right ankle during Tottenham's visit to Bournemouth on Sunday. And as he walked off down the tunnel at the Vitality Stadium, both Spurs and all of England held their collective breath.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino confirmed at half-time that Kane had aggravated his right ankle - the same he injured against Sunderland in September 2016 and Millwall in the FA Cup nearly a year to the day.

Kane is enjoying another fine season in front of goal for Spurs, as the England global is level with Mohamed Salah atop the Premier League scoring charts with 24 goals as he aims for a third straight Golden Boot award. The situation worsened when Kane was forced off in the 34th after colliding with Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Dele Alli has scored 10+ goals in all competitions in each of his three seasons with Spurs (42 goals total).


But not even three points would assuage the long-term concern.

Spurs are in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League, but far from a secure one.

More to come as more information on Kane's injury becomes available.

With Pochettino confirming that the injury could be similar to last seasons, there is a chance he may not be fit for the World Cup.
