The Three Lions are scheduled to play Brazil and Belgium in the international break. Harry Kane is undoubtedly one of the most important pieces in England’s side ahead of Euro 2024. Gareth Southgate will be eager to have the English skipper in the side as he attempts to find the best squad to take to Germany for the Euros. While the Harry Kane injury initially seemed to worry the English camp now it seems that Harry Kane will report for international duty at St.George’s Park on Tuesday despite the ankle injury.

Speaking on the matter, Bayern Munich’s sporting director Christoph Freund said, “ He will be looked at in England. He has trusted doctors there. We are in close coordination on this. Harry won’t take any risks.” While it remains uncertain whether Harry Kane will start for England or play at all in the international break, his willingness to join the English camp suggests that the injury isn’t serious. If the injury heals in time it is likely that Kane will participate in the second international break tie against Belgium.

Harry Kane will certainly return for Bayern post the break as he and Bayern attempt to win the Bundesliga. The ex-Tottenham man will also be eager to play former London rival Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for Bayern Munich.
