England captain Harry Kane is due to have a scan on his ankle, two days before his country faces the United States in the World Cup, reports said on Wednesday.
Kane left the Khalifa International Stadium on Monday with a strapping to his ankle after the 6-2 win over Iran but took part in a light training session on Tuesday.
Gareth Southgate’s side faces the Americans on Friday knowing that a victory would guarantee them a place in the knockout stage.
Kane, the top scorer at the last World Cup in Russia, has a history of ankle injuries.
Several top players are already out of the world cup, due to one injury or another. Players like Sadio Mane, Benzema, Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kante, and the likes are already out of the tournament.
England cannot afford to lose their talismatic forward, at this crucial stage. Their striking options are not that exciting, if Kane bows out through injury.
The French national team is already facing issues with its attcaking option. Along with Benzema, Nkunku is not also available for Deschamp for selection.
The team is stuck with Giroud throughout the duration of the tournament.
