could miss England’s clash against USA on Friday due to an ankle injury.

The England captain injured his right ankle in the second half of the Three Lions’ 6-2 win against Iran in their World Cup opener on Monday.

After the match, Kane was seen limping and with strapping around his ankle as he made his way out of the stadium.

According to , Kane will now undergo a scan ahead of England’s second game in Group B to assess the extent of his injury.
