Harry Kane has been passed fit to play in England’s World Cup quarter-final clash with Sweden on Saturday, according to the Guardian.

After impressing for the majority of Tuesday’s dramatic victory over Colombia in the Round of 16, Kane seemed to slow down and become less effective in the latter stages of the game.

The Tottenham striker scored from the spot during normal time and in the penalty shoot-out, but it has now been revealed he experienced discomfort in his thigh towards the end of the match.

However, the Guardian claims Kane has passed himself fit after receiving a massage for cramp.

The update comes as welcome news to the Three Lions, who have been somewhat reliant on Kane’s goals so far.

The England captain has scored six of England’s nine goals so far and is on course to go home with the Golden Boot.

Kane has now scored 19 goals in 27 appearances for England.

He entered the tournament on the back of his best ever goalscoring season for Spurs, finding the net 41 times in 48 appearances across all competitions.
