Kane underwent a scan on his right ankle on Wednesday, November 23, which showed no damage caused.

The Tottenham striker went down in the first half of their 6-2 win after a heavy tackle from Morteza Pouraliganjiin at minute 48. 

Kane was later taken off the pitch in the second half at minute 75 with Newcastle’s striker Callum Wilson replacing him. 

After being substituted he was reportedly seen with some light strapping on his right ankle. 

The Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate had noted that the decision to remove the striker was a precautionary measure. 

“I think Harry’s fine. It looked like a bad tackle but he carried on in the game. We took him off because we felt it was a moment in the game, we could do that,” Southgate stated earlier. 

England missed Kyle Walker and James Madison for their opening match, with the two still in doubt for the match against the USA. 

The three Lions are topping Group B with three points followed by USA and Wales with a single point each with Iran at the bottom with no pint.
