England captain Harry Kane prepares to have his right ankle checked before Friday’s World Cup game against the United States.
His right ankle was lightly bandaged after the game and he limped, but manager Gareth Southgate after the game said he believes Kane is “fine”.
“It looked like it was a bad tackle but he kept the game going,” Southgate said. “We pulled him out because we felt it was the moment in the game where we could do that.”
The need for a CT scan suggested the player could still be struggling with his ankle a day after the 6-2 win.
The 29-year-old is England’s second all-time top scorer, behind Wayne Rooney, and could surpass his record at the World Cup.
He provided two assists in the Three Lions’ commanding win and will be a major setback if he is forced to miss games.

France also trailed Australia in their match but ultimately won 4-1, while Denmark v Tunisia and Mexico v Poland both finished 0-0.
