Harry Kane trains for England after ankle injury scare ahead of World Cup clash with USA



The official England Twitter account shared a photo of the striker in training accompanied by the caption “skipper” and a fist emoji.

Kane is again expected in training on Thursday and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford moved to assuage fears about the skipper’s availability.

“I think he is good, probably just a little bit sore,” the Three Lions goalkeeper said at their Al Wakrah Sports Complex base.

“I’m sure he is fine, he was out on the grass with us today which is good. He is our captain.

“Everyone will take their chance. When Harry went off, Callum (Wilson) came on and got an assist.

“Everyone is training very hard. Obviously Harry is an unbelievable player, he’s the leader and the captain.”

Harry Maguire also seems fine to face the US having come off against Iran feeling unwell. The defender was involved in England training on Wednesday.

Callum Wilson was not but is not believed to be a fitness doubt, while James Maddison was again absent as he recovers from a knee complaint that ruled him out against Iran.
