Harry Kane affirms to be fit for EURO 2020 despite injury


After sustaining a ruptured tendon on his left hamstring from January 1 against Southampton, Harry Kane had been placed from the sidelines that required surgery upon his recovery that raised concerns if the Tottenham striker would be able to play at the EURO 2020 for England.

The 26-year-old England captain has said in an interview with Alastair Campbell in ES Magazine, “In my head, I am definitely at the Euros.”

“Unless something pretty drastic happens between now and then, I’ll be there. I’m still not back training with the first team, but I’m working hard in the gym, I’m getting stronger all the time.“

“We’re talking a few more weeks, and I’ll be playing again. I don’t want to make a prediction for which game I might be back, but I am hoping somewhere between the start and the middle of April.”

Kane did not wanted to provide any exact date that he would be fully fit to be back in the pitch yet he assured that he’s working ahead for the upcoming Euros tournament, initially with outdoor training ahead of schedule last week, encouraging Spurs manager Jose Mourinho to infer that the striker could be fit for their last three to five remaining matches for the season.

For the time being, Harry Kane would definitely miss out the international friendlies fixtures at home against Italy and Denmark this month, while England manager Gareth Southgate remain positive that their captain would be fully fit for the team starting from their Croatia matchup at the Wembley Stadium on June 14.

Harry Kane was the leading scorer for the 2018 World Cup wherein England reached the semi-finals round. He also stands as the sixth in the all-time England goal-scoring list, with 32 goals in 45 appearances.
