England boss Gareth Southgate is confident Harry Kane will soon return to action.
The Tottenham striker recently suffered an ankle injury, ruling him out of England’s games against the Netherlands and Italy this month – and sparking fears that he could even be a doubt for the World Cup in Russia this summer.
But Southgate sees no reason to believe Kane will not make a swift return.
“I don’t know exactly when he’ll be back, but he was very confident it would be sooner rather than later,” Southgate said at a press conference on Monday afternoon.
“His professionalism and his mindset is very positive. I would imagine he’ll be back fairly quickly.
“Like all of these lads, none of them want to miss games – they’ve got big matches coming up.
“They all want to be involved in those big games and play a part for their club and be available for the summer.
“They get good medical treatment, but they’re also very disciplined in terms of how they recover and that gives them every chance of getting back as quickly as possible.”
Kane, 24, has scored an incredible 39 goals in 44 appearances for club and country so far this season.
