Harry Kane to miss Toulon Tournament with ankle injury

Bryn Lennon

Thankfully, it's just a bad sprain.

Harry Kane will miss the upcoming Toulon Tournament, a regular Under-21 competition in France, with an ankle injury. He was forced to leave England's match against Wales Under-21 on Monday after picking up a knock, but thankfully, his injury isn't too serious. Tottenham Hotspur are calling the injury a sprained ankle, meaning he should be back for preseason training.

Here's what Gareth Southgate had to say.

"It's a real shame because Harry has been extremely patient for his chance and I was looking forward giving him some of the prestigious games in Toulon. He's warranted that opportunity and has had a super finish to the season with Tottenham so it's disappointing for us and for him."

It would have been awesome to see Kane go to that tournament and tear it up. England are going to be facing some solid opposition in Brazil, Colombia and South Korea, as well as Qatar, whose Under-21 talent I know very little about.

But for us, the most important thing is that this is just a sprain, not a break or serious ligament damage. Kane will be back to normal in no time.
