Harry Kane has been named on the bench for England’s Nations League tie against Belgium despite reports circulating that the striker would miss the game at Wembley.
The Three Lions captain has started the campaign in sensational form for Tottenham, scoring eight goals in as many matches, but suffered a muscle problem in training last week, and according to Football.London, was a major doubt for this evening’s Group A2 clash.
There’s always concern from Spurs fans whenever Kane gets injured, given his importance for the Londoners, but the report believe that Jose Mourinho has been assured by the FA that the 27-year-old’s injury isn’t too serious and is just tightness in his muscle.
And it appears that Kane is going to be fit enough to play some part at Wembley and will therefore most likely be in the starting line-up when Tottenham return to action against London rivals West Ham next Sunday afternoon.
Elsewhere, Harry Winks hasn’t been included in the matchday squad, but Eric Dier starts in a back-three alongside former Spurs man Kyle Walker and Manchester United’ Harry Maguire.
