England captain Harry Kane is a major injury concern.
England captain Harry Kane is a serious injury concern ahead of Friday's FIFA World Cup match against the United States. After suffering an injury during the 6-2 victory
against Iran, Tottenham striker Harry Kane will have a scan on his right ankle. In the 48th minute of the opening World Cup group B match on Monday, Kane was treated
after being caught by Morteza Pouraliganji's forceful tackle. Despite continuing to play, Callum Wilson of Newcastle eventually took his spot.
According to Oliver Holt in the Daily Mail, England supporters should be "biting their nails" in anticipation of Kane's scan today. While England may still advance in the
competition, according to Holt, "I don't think we can win the World Cup without Harry Kane," even if he is the team's "most essential player."
For a few games, England could manage without him, but "it would be a big blow if he were to be ruled out."
In 76 appearances for England in his international career, Kane has scored 51 goals, earning him the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Kane played a "influential role" and assisted in the creation of two of the six goals in the game against Iran, according to Phil Spencer of talkSPORT.
He now needs two more goals to tie Wayne Rooney's 53-goal record for England's men.
