Striker Harry Kane has handed the Spurs a major boost as he is reportedly set to return in six weeks’ time. England manager Southgate is reportedly ecstatic that his key striker may possibly return in time for their game during the international break in late March.
The England international ruptured a tendon in his left hamstring on News Year’s day during their 1-0 Premier League defeat at Southampton. It was initially reported that the Three Lions skipper would be ruled out for the remaining of the season with his Euro 2020 return on a knife-edge.
New reports coming from the Spurs suggest the 26-year-old rehabilitation is progressing far better than expected which could see him make his return ending of March or early April. This is good news for Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho who has been playing Lucas Moura as an emergency striker since Son Heung-min injury.
England boss Gareth Southgate has one less person to worry about for his squad as he has a number of other key forwards out with injury who he hopes will be in the run for this summer’s big tournament. Manchester United frontman Marcus Rashford return for this summer’s competition is still up in the air while Raheem Sterling has recently returned from injury.
Kane underwent a successful operation back in January with the Spurs initially stating he may not return to training until sometime in mid-April. The 26-year-old who is often described as ‘irreplaceable’ by his manager Jose Mourinho, received a lot of support and encouragement on social media from fans.
Should Kane fitness step up and he returned after the international break at the end of March, the striker could possibly feature in the Spurs last seven games. Mourinho will be sure to use his key player for any FA Cup or Champions League fixtures. While England will be ready for their key man to make his debut on June 14 against Croatia at Wembley for their European Championship campaign.
