After the game, Gareth Southgate stated that his captain seemed to be in good mood. Kane, who is essential to Englands World Cup chances, was shown walking with a slight limp and sporting strapping on his right ankle after the match. Southgate will now be hoping that more tests show the Tottenham forward, who assisted on two goals against Iran, did not suffer any major injuries. When England plays the USA in their second Group B encounter, they will be anxious for Kane to be available. He was able to participate in a recovery session on Tuesday, which is encouraging. But for Southgate, the worst-case scenario is the possibility of losing his primary striker for an extended period of time. Kane history of prolonged absences due to ankle issues raises concerns.
