Spurs sweat over Kane amid reports of lengthy absence

Spurs sweat over Kane amid reports of lengthy absence

The Egyptian star has matched Harry Kane step-for-step in the race for the Golden Boot, but the odds have tipped in his favour due to the Tottenham star's injury.

In a major blow for club and country, Kane's anticipated lay-off would see him ruled out until the end of April and have just a handful of games left at the end of the season to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

The 24-year-old damaged his ankle ligaments during Spurs' 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday and was substituted after just 34 minutes.

It was said Kane could be out until the end of April, which would be a major blow to Tottenham's hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four and winning the FA Cup.

Tottenham's Harry Kane sustains an injury as he is challenged by Bournemouth's Asmir Begovic scoring a goal which is later disallowed.

With the World Cup just three months away, national coach Gareth Southgate will also be eager to find out how long Kane could be sidelined for.

England will face Tunisia, Belgium and Panama in the World Cup group stage in Russian Federation.

This time, Spurs have three weeks until they play their next Premier League match, meaning that he'll without question miss this Sunday's FA Cup quarterfinal against Swansea, as well as England's friendlies during the worldwide break.

Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's worldwide friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece.

Kane tried to play on, but was forced to come off and left the ground on crutches.
