Tottenham have confirmed the extent of Harry Kane’s injury, announcing that the striker will be out for about a month with ankle ligament damage.
Kane lasted just 34 minutes of Spurs’ 4-1 away win over Bournemouth at the weekend before he crumpled under a challenge from Cherries’ goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

As such, Kane is certain to miss England’s dual-header of friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy later this month, with upcoming Spurs’ fixtures against Chelsea and Man City also looking decidedly iffy in terms of rehabilitation time.
At least Spurs still have Heung Min Son firing on all cylinders. England, on the other hand, are pretty much bollocksed.
