Extent of Kane's injury still unclear

Tottenham Hotspur fear that Harry Kane will be out for up to six weeks after damaging ankle ligaments during Sunday's 4-1 win away to Bournemouth.

England are sweating on the fitness of Harry Kane ahead of the 2018 World Cup as they wait to discover the extent of the damage to Tottenham's star striker.

Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday Kane has been ruled out "until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit" for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

On the first occasion he suffered the same injury he missed seven weeks - a similar period to the expected lay-off this time - in September 2016, while the second injury only ruled him out for three weeks.

The major bombshell means that he is set to sit out the club's next five league games, as well as England's friendlies against Holland and Italy, as well as the FA Cup quarter final and semi final if they progress, while leaves him facing a race against time to be fit for the Three Lions' World Cup campaign.

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Florida shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz
Tuesday's news comes one day before the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Prosecutors have called for Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz to face the death penalty.

Kane's participation for England during next week's global break also appears in doubt, with the Three Lions set to face Holland and Italy in friendlies.

As it stands, Kane would miss Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, a semi-final if they progress and four league fixtures after the global break - a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

According to the London Evening Standard, Pochettino now plans to go without a recognised striker up top during Kane's injury absence, which could span a couple of months.

England will face Tunisia, Belgium and Panama in the World Cup group stage in Russian Federation.
