Southgate Gives Injury Update On Kane After England Omission

Harry Kane was a noticeable absentee from England's starting XI to face Belgium this evening and manager Gareth Southgate has provided a fitness update on Tottenham frontman.

Kane was absent for their Nations League clash with Belgium this evening, leading to concerns over his fitness.

But Southgate has confirmed the Spurs star is ‘not injured', only suffering from muscle fatigue.

“He’s had a strange training week, really,” he told ITV.

“We gave him a couple of days of recovery after Sunday, and he started training on Wednesday, he felt some cramp.

“He’s had muscle fatigue, basically, he’s missed most of the week’s training, he got a little bit more confident with it later in the week, but hasn’t really done enough on the field to start.

“He’s not injured, he can perhaps come on later in the game. He seems more confident in how he feels, but he hasn’t had a lot of training time.”
