Harry Kane was warm during the National League group fixturesAFP
England football manager Gareth Southgate said the striker was fully fit and did not understand the problem surrounding Harry Kane’s fitness. Before the international break, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho had said he hoped Southgate would not overdo Kane in the National League. “I don’t really understand the story because he was fully fit last weekend before the last match. He would have started the last game but he didn’t have enough training time. In the meantime he was fine. The game is he’s fit and I don’t understand the story,” Goal Dot com quoted Southgate as saying.
He said: “It simply came to our notice then. He is fit, he is not injured, “he added.
Kane, 27, is suffering from muscle fatigue and was ruled out of the friendly against Wales on 8 October.
“We don’t threaten the players, I said before the camp. My priority is always the interest of the players, we never take risks and have been injured on very rare occasions during matches. But that never happened. “We lost one player due to injury due to training weight regulation and we are proud to be looking for players,” said Southgate.
“We want him to be as fit and sharp as possible for the game. Before the game on Sunday, our point with Harry was to be able to perform at the highest level. .
England is playing the horn against Denmark later today in the League of Nations. Following today’s match, Kane will play in his Premier League match against West Ham on Sunday, October 18th.
