Harry Kane Suffers Ankle Injury but Will Join England for International Duty

Bayern Munich has confirmed that Harry Kane sustained a left ankle injury during Saturday’s match against Darmstadt in the Bundesliga. Despite the setback, Kane is expected to link up with the England squad for international duty.

The incident occurred late in the game when Kane, who had scored earlier in the match, went down in the goalmouth while stretching to reach the ball. Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel provided insight into the injury, stating that Kane “slipped and fell into the net and twisted his ankle.”

Following the match, Kane was substituted due to the injury. However, despite the setback, the striker has traveled to join the England squad for upcoming international fixtures. The England team doctors, in collaboration with Bayern Munich’s medical staff, will oversee Kane’s treatment during his time with the national team.

Kane’s goal against Darmstadt not only contributed to Bayern’s victory but also marked a significant milestone in his Bundesliga debut campaign. With 31 league goals to his name, Kane surpassed the previous record held by Uwe Seeler for the most goals in a Bundesliga debut season.

Reflecting on Kane’s injury, Tuchel expressed concern, highlighting Kane’s resilience and commitment to the game. “When Harry goes off, it’s never a good sign because Harry never goes off when there’s still goals to score,” remarked Tuchel.

As England prepares to face Brazil and Belgium in upcoming friendlies, Kane’s presence and goal-scoring prowess will be sorely missed. With 62 goals in 89 appearances, Kane holds the record as England’s all-time leading goalscorer, underscoring his importance to the national team’s success.
