Harry Kane facing six-week layoff


Tottenham Hotspur fans have been holding their breath since Sunday (seriously, breathe!) as they wait for news concerning Harry Kane's ankle.

According to reports, Kane's injury is serious enough that Kane is facing a race against time to return to action in time for the World Cup in June.

England will face Tunisia, Belgium and Panama in the World Cup group stage in Russian Federation.

Official confirmation is still yet to come from Spurs on the period of time that Kane will likely miss but the Daily Mirror claims that he will be ruled out until the end of April.

That would mean Kane would return for the final few games of Spurs' Premier League season and would have only a few matches to build his fitness ahead of England's World Cup run in Russian Federation this summer.

Katy , 33, who is a judge on the US TV talent show, got up on stage to dance with contestant Michelle Sussett during her try-out. A snap of the singer in the sweater, which she previously debuted at his 40th birthday party in 2017, was shared on Instagram.

The England striker is due to receive results of a scan today, but initial assessments indicate that the damage is similar to the injury that caused him to miss ten matches in seven weeks last season.

He also sits out England's two friendlies this month against Holland and Italy, with manager Gareth Southgate names his squad for that double-header on Thursday.

An extended absence for Kane is a major blow for Spurs as the north London club fights to secure a top-four finish and qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Both Southgate and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be praying Kane's recovery is more in line with when he hurt his ankle for the second time, against Millwall previous year, but recovered much faster than expected.

Kane's history of injuries to his right ankle is a concern.
