Tottenham hot-shot Harry Kane ruled out until MAY with England striker racing to be fit for World Cup

Tottenham face an anxious wait to discover the extent of Harry Kane's ankle injury amid reports the England striker could be sidelined for six weeks.

The England striker sustained the injury during the first half of Spurs' 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday and was replaced by Erik Lamela.

The update means that Kane will miss England's upcoming internationals, but has a chance of making the World Cup.

Kane was expected to be ruled out until the end of April and still have just a handful of games left to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

He was due to have a scan yesterday but his ankle was too swollen for it to be done.

Kane will now miss England's friendlies against Holland and Italy this month, with Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate set to name his squad for those games on Thursday.

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.

Both Southgate and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be praying Kane's recovery is more in line with when he hurt his ankle for the second time, against Millwall a year ago, but recovered much faster than expected.

The spokesman added: "He is expected to return to first team training next month".

However, he will be fit for this summer's World Cup.

Tottenham return to action against Swansea in the FA Cup at the weekend without their talisman.
