Harry Kane will resume training on Thursday in preparation for England’s World Cup match against the United States after his ankle scan came back all clear, according to manager Gareth Southgate.
In England’s 6-2 victory over Iran on Monday, Kane sustained a knock to his right ankle as a result of a clumsy charge.
Although the Spurs striker, who has a history of ankle issues, did continue to play for 25 minutes, he was noticed walking with a limp after the game and underwent a precautionary scan.
But the 29-year-old received the green light to train on Wednesday, with the official England Twitter account sharing a photo of him in training accompanied by the caption “skipper” and a fist emoji.
Southgate confirmed that his captain will train with the group again on Thursday at the Al Wakrah Sports Complex ahead of Friday’s clash with the USA.
“He is good, he has worked a little bit more individually on Wednesday but he will back in with the team on Thursday and good for the game,” Southgate said on ITV.
“How’s Harry Kane…?” 👀

“We just checked him out, just to see.
“I think sometimes when you are treating things it is important to know exactly what is there and that was all good.
“It is not so much the ankle. It is more the foot. It was a poor challenge really but I think it is one that fortunately we have got away with reasonably lightly.”
